First, what exactly is uni?
Uni, also known as sea urchin, is a culinary delicacy in many parts of the world, including Japan. Uni is also commonly used in pasta, eggs, soup, etc.
When you come to our Japanese restaurant in Seattle, don’t miss out on the opportunity to try the fine delicacy that the Japanese call uni sushi. This is a form of nigiri sushi made with the edible part of sea urchins. Fans of this sushi love its creamy consistency and its light, sweet taste, which has made uni a highly-sought after dish throughout the world.
The meat used on uni sushi is often mistaken for the sea urchin’s eggs. However, it is in reality the organs that produce the eggs or milt. Some people therefore consider uni sushi to be a form of aphrodisiac. Though there may not be much real scientific evidence to support for this claim, it remains true that uni is a rare and fascinating treat for the avid sushi lover.
