Uni is a world-class delicacy—and one of the more unexpected foods to come from Japan. Sometimes referred to as the sea urchin’s roe, or eggs, uni is actually the creature’s gonads (reproductive glands), and the edible portion of the spiny sea urchin. Each sea urchin contains only five of these gonads, which makes it a special luxury on par with eating wagyu beef in Japan.
Bafun Uni originates from Hokkaido. Freshly caught Bafun Uni has a bright, distinct orange colour and a firm texture. The resulting taste profile should be slightly briny without a fishy inking and melts in your mouth. Visually, each tongue of Uni should also be dry and firm, and should not look as though they are melting or sagging.
Uni is actually very healthy. A 100g portion of sea urchins contains appx 150 calories and very little fat. The fat is also almost all unsaturated fat. For every 100g of sea urchin, there are only 1.75 grams of polyunsaturated fat. Sea urchins also contain omega-3 fatty acids, which can help lower blood pressure and reduce the risk of an abnormal heart beat.
