More about sea urchins
Sea Urchin Uni Flavour Profile
A sea urchin that has just been picked from the sea tastes sweet yet creamy with a burst of umami. The texture is soft and pillowy, melting in your mouth like butter.
The flavour and condition of uni is determined by a number of factors such as the species of urchin harvested; the type, quantity and quality of food consumed; the stage of the reproductive cycle; the water temperature and the amount of daylight and weather.
Sourcing Sea Urchin Uni
If you aren’t able to diver for sea urchins yourself, they can be bought live from tanks. Live sea urchins should be kept in suitably maintained holding tanks in which they will preserve their vitality and quality.
Uni is at its best when the urchins are in their peak nutrient-rich stage. This is the stage before the sea urchins are preparing to spawn. If the uni is weepy and milky, the urchins are in their reproductive stage and texture will be disappointing.
Sea urchin uni should be processed within 24 hours of catching them. It’s not recommended to keep sea urchins out of water for long periods of time. The uni should be extracted quickly following removal of the sea urchin from its holding tank.
Once the sea urchin uni is removed from the shell, the uni should be scooped out with a spoon or knife.
Scissors can also be used, entering the mouth of the sea urchin and cutting around the mouth with care before cleaning the inside with salt water. The spines can be trimmed so the urchin can sit nicely on the plate for presentation. Any unused uni can be stored in salt water in the refrigerator for the next few days.
