  • grated rind of two oranges and two organic lemons
  • 40 grams butter
  • a pinch of salt
  • a pinch of cinnamon
  • 2 cardamom pods
  • ground black pepper
  • chopped pistachios, to taste
  • 20 grams of lumpfish ROE
  • 320 g spaghetti alla chitarra


Melt the butter in a pan until it froth. Turn off the heat and add the citrus peel, the crushed cardamom pods, salt and cinnamon. Let stand.

Boil the pasta in salted water and drain it al dente, keeping the cooking water into a glass. Emulsify the butter with water to cook the pasta, beating with a whisk, until you have a thick sauce. Then, skip the pasta in the sauce, adding a little’ cooking water.

Serve the spaghetti in individual plates, garnish the plate with a spoonful of lumpfish ROE, and sprinkling with chopped pistachios. Bon appétit.

THE PAIRING: Choose a wine made from Masi Agricola, in his estates in Argentina. Paso Blanco is a blend of Pinot grigio (slightly wilted) and Torrontes (an Argentine variety), intense aromas of white flowers and ripe fruit; its taste has delicate hints of citrus, in particular of lemon, that perfectly combine with citrus fruits used in this recipe.
