Seasonally sourced from the icy Sea of Okhotsk waters in Hokkaido, uni is the meat (or roe) from the spiny fresh sea urchin.
Though typically called sea urchin roe, uni is actually the sex organ that produces roe, sometimes referred to as the gonads or corals.
Uni is one of the few remaining delicacies that are harvested from the wild, and are almost always hand-cut by professional scuba divers.
Traditionally a Japanese delicacy, uni is still considered here to be an aphrodisiac. It has a strong ocean smell, a subtle notes of butter and the most: uni is extravagantly-and healthily-addictive.
Though usually on top of sushi, uni can also be used in sauces, spread like butter, or used in pastas or rice.
