Carne de erizo marino
Bafun uni, featured in the image above, is compact in size and comes from a smaller sea urchin, harvested from much deeper ocean depths.
This gives the uni a bolder taste that’s rich in umami and slightly bitter notes.
Due to its size and distinct flavor, bafun uni is best suited for cooked dishes and sauces.
It has a dark orange color, which is why it’s sometimes referred to red sea urchin.
