Sea urchins can be eaten raw or cooked. First, you will need to open the sea urchin. Take a knife and cut around the outside of the top of the sea urchin. Do this as if you were carving the top off of a pumpkin.
Drain the liquid out of the sea urchin. You are now left with six roes. Squeeze the juice of a lemon over top of the roes. Scoop the roes out with a spoon and eat them.
If you prefer your roes cooked, you can drizzle some olive oil over a slice of french bread. Set your roes on top of the bread and then place the bread on top of a grill. Cook until toasted. Serve warm.
