Sea Urchin? [split from California board]

Eat_Nopal | Feb 18, 2008 08:16 AM

I am a bit ignorant about Sea Urchin... in Mexico I have only ever heard of the Sea Urchin roe being consumed... its usually just treated like any other Ceviche marisco... in the Yucatan they dress it up with some Sour Orange Juice and Red Onions and its good to go, in Veracruz its served with Veracruz style cocktail sauce (which has capers, olive oil & some kind of white wine sauce in addition to watered down ketchup & lime juice)... in Ensenada... I didn't have it but a saw a street vendor that was preparing a row of 5 rows of 10 tostadas on a table as he was prepping for 10 AM, Sunday hangover rush... and he said he simply dresses a tostada with a Spicy Mayonnaise... marinades the Urchin Roe in lime juice for a couple of minutes... puts it on the tostadas.... and accompanies it with Roasted Chile Gueros on the side.
