Unique to the Fukui prefecture, these deliciously addictive sea urchin covered beans are made by deep-frying fava beans in oil until crispy and then covering them with sea urchin. With over a 200-year history, this snack has been enjoyed throughout Japan. The savory sweetness of the fava beans and the subtle flavor of the sea urchin give them an exquisite texture and taste. Can be eaten as a snack with beer or tea or on their own.
