That’s right, folks. Sea urchins are edible. And yes, they do, in a really strange way, taste like the sea. Not in an overly salty, I just swallowed a gallon of sea water way, but in a reminiscent, oh look at the beautiful sea, kind of way.
Now, I used to be one of the pickiest eaters on the planet (when I first studied abroad in Spain I would go so far as to pick out the pieces of fish from a dish my host mom made me). But now, it’s a whole new ball game and I have changed from picky to foodie.
