Increase the heat, add the butter and stir until it will be incorporated into the sauce, add the juice and zest of the lime. Stir for a minute more and add the bottarga powder. Remove the pot from the heat.

Serve in a bowl, a ladle of sauce, a piece of crab and finish the dish with the mustard sprouts.
