Hidden within the sea urchin’s spiny exterior lies a creamy, rich tasting delicacy known as uni. Featured on menus at the finest sushi restaurants and bistros around the world, uni has a uniquely nutty taste and briny scent.
These delicious ocean dwellers are harvested from the Channel Islands, 22 miles from Santa Barbara harbor on the California coast.
