Safe to Eat Cured Mullet Roe (aka Karasumi, Bottarga) if it's Moldy?

Anyone know if it's still safe to eat cured mullet roe (aka karasumi or bottarga) if it's developed mold on the outside (like with hard cheese)? Can I just wash and/or cut off the moldy parts and eat the rest?

I'd kept it in the fridge since I bought it.

I loathe to toss it because it was $30 and I'd only eaten a tiny piece of it. :T
