WHAT'S UP WITH THIS UNI CRAZE?

If you've been seeing #foodporn posts on social media about uni in all forms, and wondering what the heck is going on or how to eat it, don't worry, you are not alone. Besides the fortunate ones who've tried it while traveling or dining out at higher-end Japanese restaurants, this is a relatively new seafood item for most Singaporeans. 

So what is uni? Uni is the sea urchin's gonads (organ producing milt/ roe). When placed in your mouth, it is best described as a creamy pillow of ocean that melts, leaving an aftertaste like no other. 

The most popular way to have uni is to have it raw, embellished with all your favourite things like in our featured picture (courtesy of our customer, Abi)  above. 

But, if you want to go one step further to cook uni, go ahead and try them! Here are some ideas.

1. Uni Omelette Rice

Top your porridge off with uni and some garnishing, akin to having salted egg with porridge, only creamier and more "oceany"!

3. Uni Chawanmushi

Ikan Kurau

Fillets are cleaned and they are fresh and nicely packed individually - GOOD!
Request for head to be chopped but apparently they they cut into half. Anyway it is still OK.

Happy

Happy with my 0rder lobsters tail

Flavourful!

This soya sauce was rich and flavorful and enhanced the food well. Glad to find an authentic natural brewed product without MSG.

Tasty!

I had a lunch guest who is allergic to MSG so wanted to avoid it at all costs. I used this sauce on steamed seabass from Dish the Fish and it was quite delicious! Also mixed it with black bean sauce to use on mixed vegetables. Great product, happy to buy again!

Excellent! I grilled the lobster tails. Meat was firm and taste was sweet. Worth the buy.
