Serve cold. 33 Carne GRILLED STEAK WITH BOTTARGA BUTTER serves 6–8 We pay homage to the famous Tuscan bistecca alla fiorentina with a nice, fat, dry-aged porterhouse and grill it over hardwood charcoal until it’s charred on the outside and quite rare inside. The Italians may think we’ve lost our minds, but we like to anoint our steak with flavored butter, in this case with shaved bottarga, the dried roe of tuna or gray mullet that is a specialty of Sicilian and Sardinian cooking—our idea of a summer surf ‘n’ turf platter.

Reduce the heat to low and cook, stirring constantly, until the custard is thick enough to coat the back of the spoon and registers between 175° and 180° on an instant-read thermometer, about 10 minutes. Stirring the custard constantly as it cooks and thickens helps prevent it from coming to a boil and curdling. Strain the custard into a medium bowl. Stir in the fig preserves and the vanilla. Set the bowl into a larger bowl filled with ice, then stir the custard frequently until it has cooled. Cover the custard and refrigerate it until completely chilled, about 4 hours (though it can keep in the refrigerator for up to 2 days).

2 cups whole milk 1 cup heavy cream ¾ cup sugar 6 egg yolks Pinch of salt 1 cup fig preserves 2 teaspoons vanilla bean paste or vanilla extract Put the milk, cream, and ½ cup of the sugar into a heavy saucepan and bring to a simmer over medium heat, stirring gently until the sugar dissolves. Meanwhile, put the yolks, salt, and the remaining ¼ cup of sugar into a medium mixing bowl and whisk together until the yolks are thick and pale yellow. Gradually ladle about 1 cup of the hot milk into the yolks, whisking constantly.
