Due to the high demand of this product, orders are limited to 3 trays per customer. Our Gold uni (A Grade) from Baja is about the closest you can get to our California Gold uni. This is due to it being the same species of sea urchin and our sharing the Southern California coastline with Baja California. The only real difference between this uni is its country of origin. Like our California uni, it provides a sweet, ocean fresh flavor and succulent texture that melts in your mouth. It’s great right out of the package, or as part of any sushi experience! For maximum enjoyment, consume within 3-5 days upon delivery. Please note that slight variations in color and texture may occur within the same package. Did You Know? Commonly referred to as roe, the bright orange to pale yellow “tongues” of uni found in every urchin are actually the urchin’s reproductive organs. Uni has long been considered a delicacy in Japan and sushi bars worldwide, and in some cultures is considered an aphrodisiac! Uni Grades* Gold (A-Grade): Bright gold, yellow or orange color. Creamy yet firm texture. Fresh ocean scent and ocean-sweet taste. Uni pieces are large and complete intact. This is exceptionally high-grade uni for use for top-quality sashimi and sushi. Premium (B-Grade): Gold, yellow or orange color but less brilliant than A-Grade. Creamy yet firm texture. Uni pieces are smaller but primarily intact. Fresh ocean scent and ocean-sweet taste. Used for sushi and other dishes as the featured item. Vana (C-Grade): Dark yellow or orange or even tending toward brown in color. Melty texture and slightly nutty flavor. Uni sections may be intact but are mostly broken pieces. Typically shipped frozen. Due to its ultra-soft consistency, vana is typically used in dishes where it is mixed with other ingredients, such as soups and sauces. *Grades are relative to where the uni was harvested. For example, gold uni from the Pacific Northwest is typically darker and smaller than gold uni from California due to water temperature and the urchins’ food sources.
