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.

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

3. Uni Chawanmushi

Sockeye salmon roe

It’s subtle, juicy and a hint of sweetness. Great to be eaten on its own.

Tasty tasty

Used it for stir fry mee siam, stir fry veggies etc. Excellent. Definitely buying again.

Huge fresh prawns

Huge. Firm to the touch. No unpleasant after taste. Will buy again.

Yummylicious Angka

Super fresh, can tell from its firmness. No “fish tank” smell or “drain water/ muddy” aftertaste. Will definitely order again.

Big and creamy

Good! They are mostly big and creamy (only one was tiny), and great value for money! We didn’t thaw them before consumption. Just run the frozen shells under running water in the sink for 4-5 minutes. Very convenient!
