Bottarga, a cured mullet roe available at specialty fish markets and gourmet shops, adds a cheesy-tasting umami to everything it garnishesJenny Huang

“This is sort of our dressed-up version of the Caesar,” says chef Katie Jackson of Hart’s restaurant in Brooklyn. “It has anchovies two ways as well as bottarga, a cured mullet roe that we shave over the whole salad.” You can find bottarga at specialty stores or order it online. It has a rich, umami-like flavor not unlike an aged cheese.
