Cheers guys. It would only be for a few hours until I got home. Temperature shouldn't be a problem with Scotlands wonderful weather. :waterwork

hello folks. Good old friend of mine have shown me an interesting way of eating urchins. He simply throw them on top of hot coals or slow burning fire and lets them cook there until needles are burnt almost all the way to the shell. Then he rolls them out of fire, let them cool some and crack them open. Then he would simply pick away edible parts through all the dirt and minced grass or whatever is that inside them urchins. Can't say this is the best way, but there is something about it, roe is only partially cooked, still has original flavour and also there is added flavor from smoke and all the guts. Also, this way roe cannot be really cleaned perfectly and some "greens" will be eaten along, but it kind of adds to the experience I would say.

I really love urchins. They generally don't have a lot of meat on them but well worth the effort to get it off. Grilling is always an option but popping them into the oven is great too. Since they live on the street, there's really no family to speak of looking for them. I find gathering them at night, when they're huddled in a corner to be the best.
