    Where did you catch it/ how did you prepare it? Looks delicious.

    I just bought one sea urchin at one of the seafood wholesalers in LA. Heavier the better.

    I just cut around the mouth, dumped out the innards, split the shell in half, then rinsed the inside very carefully with cold water, then used a spoon to remove the roe from the shell, and placed the roe into salted water (I was using about a teaspoon per pint; you can add a touch of lemon juice if you'd like, but I prefer just salt water).

    I let the roe soak in salted water (which helps remove the black membrane it's attached to), then rinsed and repeated this very carefully until the black membrane and other parts rinsed off. I then drained the roe on paper towels, chilled them and had lunch.

    I got about 8 really nice sized pieces out of one urchin.

    Where I live you can dive off the point and collect sea urchin. The catch limit is 10 per person, we also have black lip abalone, but there is a bag limit of 2 on those. Still nothing better than free seafood[IMG][/IMG]

    Uni, my absolute favorite. Love to finish a sushi meal with this bite.

    I followed a recipe from Eric Ripert, which was an urchin and pasta dish. Fantastic.

    Not to completely derail the thread, I don't get abalone. That's one tough piece of shellfish and didn't seem to have all that much flavor.

    Btw, jealous of the west coast.
