Uni (pronounced oo-nee) is the Japanese delicacy for the edible part of the Sea Urchin. Uni ranges in color from gold to a light yellow, and has a light, sweet, ocean-like flavor and a creamy texture. Sea Urchins are a amazing treat for those who acquire the delicate taste. At Sakana, we only use specially packed uni for the best quality. Most restaurants buy Uni packed in wood trays. The wood preserves the uni to help them stay fresher longer, but at sakana we buy our uni (from ong beach California) packed in salt water, which keeps the consistency and fresh taste of the delicate sea urchin. We hope you try our Uni and experience the delicious delicacy for yourself !
