Bottarga and cream? Help.

Noix | Jul 14, 2014 08:52 AM

I have a beautiful piece of bottarga from Bemis & James. I've had spaghetti alla bottarga a few times and loved it, especially where breadcrumbs, crushed red pepper and parsley are involved (sorry, purists) but am wondering about the use of cream in a bottarga and pasta dish... think bottarga alfredo, minus the cheese. It sounds delicious to me, but I don't want to ruin the goods.

What's your favorite way to eat bottarga and is adding cream (I have double cream, whipping cream and creme fraiche on hand) to spaghetti alla bottarga a bad idea?
