Google Review: "We ordered some caviar, uni, and oysters for New Years and were *very* pleased. The quality was incredible. The packaging kept everything safe, secure, and cool for shipping." - Betsy H
To get Sea Urchin Roe (AKA Uni), Sea Urchin's are cut and processed by hand. This delicate process yields beautiful quality fresh uni. The fresh uni is then packed in salt water. Packing Uni in salt water is great because it avoids the need for preservatives or hardening agents.
Once the salt water is drained off, which will take one or two minutes, the uni will be 100% ready to eat and enjoy.
How Sea Urchin Roe (Uni) is harvested and prepared for market
We recently had the honor of visiting our Maine Urchin (Uni) processor in Portland, Maine. It was so interesting getting to see first-hand exactly how this delicacy gets prepared for market. To learn about that visit, click here.
Fresh Uni is a delicacy that is enjoyed widely in Sushi and is becoming a more popular ingredient in other seafood dishes. Uni is a fantastic sauce for pasta and is delicious on toast.
Maine Uni and Tuna Poke Tostadas Recipe
We created some delicious Maine Uni and Tuna Poke Tostadas for a delightful showcase of sweet, spicy, and umami flavors. As with the uni, it is crucial to use sushi-grade tuna to ensure the best experience. Bluefin or Ahi tuna both work well with this recipe. This delicious recipe was created by SoPo's Jacqueline Clark (AKA The Briny Babe).
What does Uni taste like?
This is a very common question. High-quality, fresh Sea Urchin Roe harvested in Maine should have a buttery, sweet, and fresh flavor. You will get some hints of ocean brininess but nothing that could be considered overpowering.
