Sea Urchin – Uni PREMIUM
Each bite of sea urchin is full of creamy, briny flavor that melts in your mouth, leaving a lingering ocean taste. Urchin roe is served as uni when prepared for sushi. It may be prepared in a variety of forms including raw; with rice; preserved in brine, alcohol and salt; or incorporated into sauce, custards and casseroles.
Each sea urchin contains five bright “tongues” ranging in color from bright yellow to dark orange. Color may vary naturally throughout the year depending on many factors including water temperature, diet, seasonal spawning, weather and availability. Uni grading is done based on color, taste and texture. Our Gold and Premium grades of uni are always fresh, and our vana is frozen unless otherwise requested to be fresh. All uni tastes good and can be eaten raw.
