Exceptionally clean and refreshing in flavor, this golden "Murasaki" uni has subtle savory flavors with a beautifully briney finish. Skilled divers source these Red and Purple Sea Urchins among the cold, rocky currents of the 2,600 mile-long coastline of Chile. Once caught, all of the uni tongues are harvested and packaged by hand.
Respected among the sea's most sublime delicacies, urchins are hand-harvested by deep sea divers with small, precise, but modest equipment. This results in very little unintended catch of other species, while also preventing damage to the ocean floor, altogether making for a far less intrusive and more sustainable operation than is commonplace with other seafoods. Terrific tossed in pasta for sea urchin carbonara, laid atop a sushi rice hand roll, or puréed into butter.
