Spaghetti with clams and mullet roe

With its unique aroma, mullet roe is one of those foods that can give those who taste it the illusion of suddenly finding themselves on a beach. Its intense aroma is reminiscent of fish, and its flavour has a savoury note that gives character to any seafood dish.

Together with clams, in particular, it becomes the ideal dressing for a good pasta dish: spaghetti with clams and mullet roe, a quick and easy dish to prepare, perfect for strong flavours lovers. The use of spaghetti with squid ink creates a unique colour contrast and the perfect marine aftertaste for this sauce.

Here's how to prepare spaghetti with clams and mullet roe:

4 people

800 g of clams
2 cloves of garlic
10 g of parsley
1 g chilli pepper
5 cl Vermentino di Sardegna
3 cl Janas Extra Virgin Olive Oil
400 g of Janas Squid ink Spaghetti
50 g of Janas mullet roe



Wash the clams carefully in salt and water to remove the sand from their shells. In a sufficiently large pot, cook them over high heat with a clove of garlic, 5 g of parsley and Vermentino wine.


When the clams open, remove them from the heat after about 5 minutes, peel them and filter the cooking liquid through a fine-mesh strainer. Cook the spaghetti with squid ink in plenty of salted water.


Chop ½ a chilli pepper and a clove of garlic, after removing the core. Fry them in oil, then add the open clams and part of their cooking liquid.


Drain the spaghetti al dente and add it to the clams. Stir-fry in the pan adding some extra virgin olive oil until a smooth, glossy emulsion is obtained.


Arrange the pasta neatly on the plate and sprinkle with thinly sliced or freshly grated mullet roe.
