HIGHLIGHTS

The holy grail of customer favorites and designed to please any uni lover. Santa Barbara uni can be enjoyed many ways - taste the best we offer. Fresh uni should be consumed within 1 week of the ship date. The uni shutou products ship frozen so your loved ones can enjoy our different flavors over time.

Uni Shutou, by Maruhide, starts with 100% whole pieces of fresh, high-quality Santa Barbara uni. We marinate the fresh uni in a kelp-based (kombu) soy sauce to enrich the umami taste and store the Shutou frozen.

Uni shutou ships frozen with ice packs. Some thawing is to be expected during transit. Transit times may vary. Please refrigerate or (re)freeze all products upon arrival.

The fresh salt water uni tray (ensui) is filled with a solution, mimicking ocean water. Ensui preserves the natural uni taste and has no preservatives or hardening agents. The experience will be similar to cracking fresh sea urchins on the shore and eating the uni on the spot. We recommend ordering the saltwater tray if shipping is required because the solution protects the uni.

Available for pickup in Long Beach, CA. Shippable to Japan & U.S.

How To Handle Ensui

What is uni shutou?

Uni Shutou

fresh uni marinated in kombu

Packaged uni products have a bad reputation in the industry because our competitors use low-grade uni, resulting in an unpleasant taste. We start by using the same high-grade, 100% fresh Santa Barbara trusted by Michelin chefs nationwide.

Original Flavor
We marinate the fresh uni in a kelp-based (kombu) soy sauce to enrich the umami taste and store the Shutou frozen.

New Flavors
Our popular original Uni Shutou is now available in other products. These products have the same kelp-based (kombu) soy sauce in our original flavor but are now available with new flavors.  

PORTION SIZES, SERVING, RECIPES

How much should I order?

Our sashimi-grade ingredients can be consumed raw and can be enjoyed many ways. We recommend smaller portions with sushi rice. The portion sizes depend on what other ingredient's you're serving. Mix any combination between fresh uni, uni shutou, A5 wagyu, ikura, and caviar.

Portion Size Per Person (Donburi Bowl With Sushi Rice)
Ikura: 1oz
Fresh Uni: 1-2oz
Uni Shutou: 1-2oz
A5 Wagyu: 1-2oz


Recipes

Uni Shutou products can be enjoyed as a garnish, in sushi, or by itself. You can enjoy Uni Shutou in the same way you'd enjoy fresh-uni. We recommend tasting small portions of different Uni Shutou flavors in one sitting.

Youtube is a great resource for recipe inspiration.

1. With Sushi Rice

We recommend pairing rich ingredients with sushi rice - the high acidity in the sushi vinegar and the texture of the rice balance out the richness. Sushi rice is relatively easy to make, but the prep takes some time to make the vinegar. Once you add the sushi vinegar to the hot rice, you can create many dishes with sushi rice.

Tip: brush on nikiri (sweet soy sauce reduction) over your uni and wagyu to tie in the dish - perfect for new uni eaters.

Donburi Rice Bowl

Rice bowls are one of the easiest dishes to make. Make your sushi vinegar ahead of time and make the sushi rice before serving. Our A5 wagyu, ikura, and caviar allow you to make exceptional dishes you'd typically find at fine restaurants. Simply add the ingredients on top of the sushi rice.

Nigiri & Sushi

Uni nigiri is an amazing way to enjoy sushi at home with your other ingredients, like wagyu beef. Cutting wagyu nigiri requires knife skills, but you can make nigiri with any combination of: sushi rice, uni, A5 wagyu, ikura, caviar, and nikiri sauce.

2. Uni Pasta

Uni pasta is a delicious, easy, and luxurious dish you can make at home to impress your loved ones. This dish is perfect if you have uni leftovers or if you couldn't eat your uni right away. Top the uni pasta with wagyu and ikura.

HANDLING & STORAGE

STORAGE

Please make sure someone is home to receive the perishable package, or make arrangements for the package to be received shortly after delivery. Check the individual product pages for the handling & storage details.

Maruhide will not be responsible for shipments that sit outside and spoil. We take meticulous measures to make sure your products arrive safely, and we kindly ask you for the same when receiving. Thank you for your help.

Refrigerated

Transfer to the refrigerator immediately, even if you plan on eating it right away. Best one week from the ship date.

Frozen
Transfer to the freezer immediately if you plan on eating at a future date (Up to 3 months for best experience), or keep refrigerated for immediate enjoyment. We don't recommend freezing your fresh uni products.

Please follow food-safe handling guidelines when storing, preparing, and consuming our products.
