Japan loves Italian food (and who doesn’t?)
One of Japan’s unique pasta dishes is Tarako spaghetti.
Tarako is salted cod roe.
It is mixed into a creamy, buttery sauce and coats the spaghetti.
It is often topped with sliced salted seaweed called nori.
Mentaiko is a spicy version of tarako, which originated from Korea, it’s also commonly used in this recipe.
