So, what is sea urchin?

Sea urchin is a spiny echinoderm found in oceans around the world, prized for its delicate and briny flavor. The edible part is the gonads, which have a buttery, creamy texture that melts in your mouth. Sea urchins are commonly used in Japanese cuisine, where they are known as uni and often served as a sushi topping or in noodle dishes. They are also popular in Mediterranean and coastal cuisine, where they are enjoyed fresh or used in sauces and dips. Despite their prickly appearance, sea urchins are a delicacy with a unique flavor that seafood lovers can't resist.
