The product is obtained from mullet fillets, skinned and boned, steamed and jarred under oil cover. Sunflower seed oil is used, whose delicate flavour does not alter the taste of the fish. Finally, salt and a few grains of black pepper are added. The simple and delicate flavour of the fillets goes well with any side dish.
I Pescatori di Orbetello
I Pescatori di Orbetello have succeeded in integrating fishing and farming, the sale of fresh produce, and the preparation of processed products, tourism, and catering. All the fish comes exclusively from the Orbetello lagoon, where careful integrated management between fishing and the environment guarantees the freshness of the product. Ancient fishing techniques, the result of centuries of experience and climatic conditions, sometimes cannot guarantee the immediate availability of the product, which will be delivered anyway. Slow Food has recognized the work of I Pescatori as a model to follow and has designated the Bottarga di Orbetello and Palamita del Mare Toscano as its Presidia.
