The Murasaki Uni is the most common type available in Japan. It comes from a dark purple sea urchin with long pointed spines. It is mustard yellow in color and has a mildly sweet and salty flavour with very little fishiness in the after notes. It’s best eaten in sushi or as sashimi to enjoy its delicate flavors. In a way you could say that Murasaki Uni sets the baseline of what you would expect sea urchin to taste like.
It should always be kept chilled and to be consumed within 3 days.
