Yes. Please pick up your order on time and before the latest pick up time using the chart above.

Shutou can be enjoyed in many ways as a garnish, in sushi, or by itself. Japan Airlines serves Shutou as an hors d’ouvres and is often compared to high-quality caviar. Customers stock their freezers with various flavors and enjoy gifting uni to their loved ones.

Net Weight: 120g / 4.2oz (approximately). Includes one jar.

Marinade: Sea urchin (uni), squid, salt, canola oil, soy sauce, and sugar.

Species: Santa Barbara, wild-caught red sea urchin.

Grade: Sashimi grade and ready to eat.

Brand: Maruhide Marine Products

Ships frozen overnight with ice packs. Available for pickup in Long Beach, CA. Shippable to Japan & U.S.

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.
