Imagine you're in Santa Barbara, California, where some of the best and freshest Sea Urchin Uni from the world is in habitat. You visit the local fish market, and you see a live urchin for sale. You'd love to try it, but don't have the tools, patience, or the stomach to witness the cracking and processing of the Urchin.
Instead, we take care of all of that process for you. The Uni is cracked open and cleaned; it goes into a saltwater (Ensui) concoction that replicates seawater. This method retains the Uni's most natural taste and texture without any preservatives or chemicals and is purely natural. It is the closest one can experience eating a freshly cracked uni straight out of the water. We ship this item in temperature-controlled packaging to your door! Once arrived, all you have to do is follow the easy to follow instructions to enjoy this umami! Pair this Fresh Salt Water Santa Barbara Sea Urchin Uni with some Caviar and Otoro (Tuna) for the best complementary taste and experience!
Specie Name & Grade: From the coast of California, this type of Sea Urchin (Uni in Japanese) is commonly referred to as the Red Sea Urchin (scientific name: Mesocentrotus franciscanus). Sea urchins are from the echinoderms family of marine animals. There are currently about 18 different types of edible Sea Urchins throughout the world. The Red Sea Urchin from the coast of southern California is widely known for its "sweet" after taste due to the kelp (large brown algae seaweeds) it consumes for its nutrition.
