To protect your hands from accidental stings, always wear gloves while you carefully cut off the sharp ends of the spikes.
- Working with its mouth, use kitchen shears to cut around the hole and remove the top of the shell, revealing the dangling whole along with the five points of the inner shell.
- Pour all of the liquid inside into the bowl, catching any blades that might fall off.

We recommend eating uni immediately, whether on toast with schmear butter or toss it in hot pasta to create an emulsion sauce.
