What’s the difference between yellow and red sea urchin?
Yellow and red uni are almost the same. The main difference according to our head chefs and specialists is purely the colour! Some uni tend to be red while others yellow or orange. This could be due to what the uni eat or simply a trait of that particular uni. Taste wise, they are more or less the same as well. However, some uni enthusiasts do say that the yellow and orange uni is sometimes slightly creamier and sweeter, while the red is slightly drier and richer in its briny flavour.
Uni is best eaten with/as:
- sushi rice, pasta, risotto;
- other seafood like botan ebi, salmon and ikura;
- rich foods like Japanese beef, ootoro & chutoro; or
- dried Seaweed, ohba
