sea urchin

[English] plural sea urchins

The edible part is the orange coral or roe. They should really only be eaten live. In Glass, a restaurant in Trastevere in Rome which had recently achieved a Michelin Star, I ate sea urchins in ravioli with tomato and coffee. I expected a fishy, essence of sea flavour, but my jaded palate shot into life as my mouth filled with a divine and luscious flavour.
