【英語】 “Uni” : 生ウニをふんだんに使ったウニ丼を、わさび醤油のみでいただきましょう!

 “Uni” is Sea Urchin, which is typically eaten fresh in Japan as “Sashimi”, “Sushi” topping, or “Uni-don” which is a bowl of cooked rice topped with fresh “Uni”, as seen in the first picture.
ウニは、日本では、刺身、寿司ネタ、或は、写真のようなウニ丼などとして主に生のまま食べられます。

 

Good season for “Uni” is several months before the egg-laying periods, and is usually from spring to autumn, best during the summer, depending on each kind.

ウニの旬は産卵の少し前です。その種類に寄りますが、春から秋にかけて、特に夏場が最も味や品質がよいです。

 

As in the first picture, “Uni-don” is usually served just with “Wasabi”, Japanese horse radish, and soy sauce, so as not to spoil the fresh flavor and taste of “Uni”

ウニの風味や味を損なわないように、ふつうウニ丼は、わさびと醤油のみでいただきます。

 

 

Freshness is very important for the taste, and therefore, when visiting its origin sea shore towns, you may encounter a restaurant, which offers you an opportunity to eat fresh “Uni” directly from its shell, like from the one seen in the second picture!!
ウニの味には鮮度がとても重要で、産地を訪れると、時折その殻から直接食べる場を提供する店に出会えるかもしれません。

Please try if you had a chance!!
