Its bright orange star makes the sea urchin a gorgeous sea creature. Even though the outside is covered in spines, sea urchins are totally harmless, they move slowly and it is not hard to catch them. This is why they can only be fished at certain times of the year to avoid endangering reproduction.
TIP: try sea urchin pulp with spaghetti. Its unique flavour, which is more delicate that that of oysters, makes for a sensational dish!
