Loxechinus albus Sea Urchin Also known as:Uni, Erizo de mar
Product Overview Sea urchin has a little saffron-colored
tongue that looks a little like a fruit or flower from the
sea. This delicacy that some people can't wait to slurp
down at their favorite sushi bar is admired for its exceptional
sweetness and contrasting notes of brine and iodine. There
are more than 700 species of the echinoderms called sea
urchins in oceans all over the world and Chile has some
of the best. Isla del Rey's Sea Urchin arrives whole to
our processing plant where it is inspected for quality and
then placed in ice cold brine solution to keep the tongue
firm. It is best when shipped fresh in salt water but can
also be shipped frozen in trays with the tongues laid carefully
side by side. There are three grades of frozen tongues to
choose from. Try some today and experience the powerful
qualities of this delicacy.
Isla del Rey harvests sea urchin by scuba diving off the
shores of southern Chile. The catch is brought to
certified processing plant where we use special openers
designed to break open the urchin without damaging
Our staff of quality control inspectors make sure that
the product meets the required norms and is free of
before shipping. At Isla de Rey we respect the Convention
on the Conservation of Antractic Marine Living Resources.
Our livelihood depends on it. Sea Urchin can not be harvested
from October 15 through March 1.
