The Murasaki Uni season has at long last arrived! Murasaki uni that has recently been captured has a lighter, richer pale and light yellow color, a texture that is firm but creamy, and a flavor that has a sweet undertone.
Because it has a taste that is much cleaner and less briny than the other Uni, it is the ideal Uni for beginners and those people who are new to Uni but still want to enjoy the flavors of fresh uni.
We would like to present AAA Gokujo (which literally translates to "the best grade") uni to the gourmet seafood aficionados in the United States. A single tray of AAA Gokujo Uni can sell for hundreds of dollars at the market, making it one of the most sought-after and rare luxury foods in the world. You now have the opportunity to indulge in this delicacy.
The quality denoted by the designation AAA is synonymous with both opulence and superior flavor. Uni is given a grade that reflects its color, its texture, and how fresh it is; the highest possible grade, AAA, has a bright yellow/gold color, a sweet taste, and a firm texture.
What is Mutenka Uni?
The name "Mutenka Uni" is frequently used interchangeably with "AAA Uni." The word "Mutenka" 無添加 refers to organic Uni that has been processed in a natural way and does not include any chemicals. The majority of the Uni that we consume has been treated with alum (a preservative) in order to keep its shape and to aid in its preservation. This is the case regardless of where the Uni originates. You won't be able to enjoy the unadulterated flavor of Uni unless it is of the AAA quality because only that grade can keep its shape without the use of additives (unless it is stored in salt water).
