This recipe was created by our chef/fisherman Kevin Butler after diving for sea urchin at Sea Ranch on the north coast. The dish is rich with umami goodness. A rich and hearty pasta dinner when you feel like a little pampering. Try folding in some fresh arugula or peas at the end. You won't be disappointed.
For a casual peel-and-eat appetizer, chef David Kinch flash cooks them in the shell with homemade salted butter and local apple brandy. The apple-y essence of the brandy highlights the sweetness of the ridgebacks.
