Due to the high demand of this product, orders are limited to 3 trays per customer. Sushi aficionados agree that uni is an essential part of any sushi experience, and gold (A Grade) uni sushi is as good as it gets! The cold, pristine waters of the Pacific Northwest are home to a variety of sea urchins, including the red sea urchin (Strongylocentrotus franciscanus). Red sea urchins harvested in this region provide a gold uni that appear bright yellow or orange in color. Pacific Northwest uni tends to be smaller when compared to Southern California uni; and it may range in color from bright yellow to dark orange; however, it still provides a sweet, ocean fresh flavor and succulent texture that melts in your mouth! Enjoy this uni on its own right out of the package, or as part of any sushi experience. For maximum enjoyment, consume within 3-5 days upon delivery. Slight variations in color and texture may occur within the same package.   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 in top-quality 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.
