  • httpdjin@chefaz I have never actually got the chance to taste urchin before, the price has always been an issue, it costs about $70+ where I come from, and if they can find some way to increase urchin population and make it cheaper, that'd be great.
  • tee_aechNice.. who woulda thought to ever try n eat one of those.. lol
  • permanentmarkherI've always wanted to try these... Anyone know how they taste?
  • thetonyhamGo to a sushi restaurant and order uni.
  • itschelcuisine@permanentmarkher It has its own distinct briny, slightly salty flavor... Sooooo good though. I've had it as sushi and in pasta.
  • gregsworlddudes@permanentmarkher it literally tastes like the ocean.

  • seastephaniefish@chefaz urchins don't need to be saved. There are plenty in California.
  • ricardo_barbosaIn Portugal we eat urchin since ever... specialy in the coast line zones... always fresh and directly from the sea! Just have to collect them by hand during low tides! Lol
  • ricardo_barbosaWe eat a mollusca of the north sea called patella.. (LAPA) in portuguese... we eat it natural, grilled or cooked! ;-)
