Bottarga Polveralis - Salted, Dried and Grated Cod Roe - 50g

Bottarga Polveralis is a local Norwegian delicacy of salted, dried and grated cod roe. The roe is selected by hand and processed before it is hung out for drying. After approx. 10 weeks of drying outdoors, the roe has developed a fresh, complex aroma and an intense taste of sea and seafood. Bottarga Boreale is low in fat and rich in protein. 

How to use it

Bottarga Polveralis is an umami bomb that can be used alone or as a flavor enhancer. It can be sprinkled with scrambled eggs, potatoes, white pizza, vegetables or used as a spice in fish tacos, mayonnaise or salads. It is very convenient to use as a flavor enhancer in butter. 


About Hrogn - The History of Bottarga Boreale

The history of Bottarga Boreale goes back to the winter of 2007, when Jonas Juselius first heard of Bottarga. Jonas comes from Finland but lives in Tromsø. He has a Ph.D. in theoretical chemistry and a strong passion for cooking. As an avid culinarian, Jonas acquired some skrei roe and started experimenting. The following years he continued to produce and improve small amounts of bottarga for family and friends to enjoy. In 2009 Jonas shared his ideas with Joakim Wikström, a Swede with a long background in the food and hospitality industry. They both saw the potential of bottarga made from skrei, and Joakim enrolled at Tromsø University, aiming to develop the idea into a viable business venture. In the following years, the duo slowly scaled up the production. In 2014 the time had come to start a company. With some aid from Innovasjon Norge, Hrogn AS was born. The company got its name from the Norse word for roe, and is equally unpronounceable in every language. Some years later, the duo was joined by Lia Berti, an Italian with a strong food interest. Before joining the company, Lia finished her Master's degree in Business Creation and Entrepreneurship, using Hrogn AS as her case study. In 2017 the company produced the first batch of skrei bottarga on a commercial scale, for an international market. As of 2020, Hrogn AS is exporting Bottarga Boreale to 14 countries, and has over 20 Michelin restaurants on its customer list.
