Urchin Roe, “Uni”
Out of stock
We usually source from Chile once the Maine/Canada season ends; however, Covid has disrupted the importation of uni. We will most likely not offer it again until the local season starts back up in the fall. If we see a consistent supply from Chile, we will make an announcement in our newsletter.
Available as 2 x 4 oz (approx. 20-30 in each) trays. Product ships fresh.
Sourcing premium quality fresh urchin roe is not an easy task. Lucky for Browne Trading, a leading urchin processor is located just down the street from our facility! This means we have daily access to the freshest uni available in the United States.
Our uni has a bright yellow to orange color, a sweet flavor, and a creamy texture. It is delicious raw or in omelets, folded into pasta, or pureed into butter. Uni is perishable and is best eaten on the day of arrival.
Maine urchin season begins in the fall and ends in the spring. Currently, our local processor sources from Canada. In the summer months, we source from colder Chilean waters. We purchase only the highest grade uni available.
