Fish Tacos With Bottarga
Originating in Baja California, Mexico, fish tacos have become widely popular all over the United States, and with good reason: they taste great! Baja California is known as a prime fishing destination, so fresh fish is the order of the day. The two bottargas made beautiful culinary music with the cod. The Brazilian Bottarga Gold (grated) had a delicious yet sharp flavor which was balanced out by the buttery richness of the French bottarga (sliced) both of which were mediated by the pan fried cod. When you make fish tacos, do not forget the bottarga to make them extra special. As a last note, one can use any white flaky fish for these tacos.
