The Instacart guide to sea urchin products

When it comes to seafood, sea urchins are one of the underrated gems that you can add to your palate. Popularly known as ‘Uni' in Japan, the mainstream gourmet food industry has mostly overlooked sea urchins for a long time. One of the main reasons behind it seems to be the fact that sea urchins have to be eaten immediately after they are caught. Unlike many other types of seafood, sea urchins must be eaten fresh. If kept for too long, the meat starts to go bad pretty quickly, and it does not freeze well.
