Uni (Sea Urchin)
I love Sea Urchin! I usually like to eat very simple traditional Japanese way - Sea Urchin Sashimi (see left -from Ryoko's in San Francisco), Sushi, had roll, on top of rice bowl.
When you taste good fresh sea urchin, it should taste like sea and sweet. It should not taste bitter nor fishy. It is difficult to find fresh nice quality sea urchin even in Japan. The way you eat sea urchin is almost always raw and simple, so freshens matters a lot. So if you want to try Sea Urchin for the first time, do not try at cheap sushi restaurant. You would probably hate sea urchin for lest of your life....
