multiple flavors, long shelf-life, and popular gifting item


Shutou can be enjoyed in many ways as a garnish, in sushi, or by itself. We use 100% whole Santa Barbara uni. We marinate the fresh uni in a kelp-based (kombu) soy sauce to enrich the umami taste. Our Shutou is served in JAL first class as an hors d’ouvre and is often compared to caviar. Our clients stock their freezers with the different Shutou products.

Our 2nd highest grade of uni which exceeds expectations for uni enthusiasts. This frozen uni is a popular substitute when the 5 Pocket Tray fresh uni is out of stock.

We marinate the fresh uni with our original stock soy sauce mixture. We mature the blend overnight to bring out rich, deep umami, and flavorful taste. Sea urchin soy sauce can be enjoyed in many ways, including sashimi, pasta, tofu, salad, steamed rice, and more.

A delicious way to add a balance of sweet, buttery, and briny flavor to your dishes. Our butter uses high quality Santa Barbara uni and is made up of 50% uni. Use the uni butter on bread, pasta, tofu, seafood, sushi, and more.
