Pan Fried Abalone in Miso Butter



Cut the abalone meat from the shell and discard the guts. Slice the abalone as thinly as you can across the muscle. Bash the slices with a meat mallet until they’re thin and tender.


Slice cucumber, carrot, sprouts and spring onion. Toss sesame seeds, rice noodles and leaves through the vegetables. Next, whisk the olive oil, soy, and vinegar together and dress the salad.


Flash fry the abalone with miso paste and butter in a medium hot pan. It only takes a minute, so make sure everything is ready to go when you start.

Serve with a noodle salad for a meal or just hand it around as a starter.

Abalone has a buttery, salty taste and a dense texture similar to scallops and squid. Farmed abalone is available year-round from your fishmonger.
