Slow Cooked Abalone for Lunar New Year

~ Juicy and tender Abalone over a bed of Chinese greens


Abalone or Abs to those in the know, is a highly sought-after morsel for the discerning palate. When prepared well, the taste and texture of this mono-valve shellfish is heavenly. This dish is often featured at wedding banquets and other special occasions. So I thought it would be apt to served this up for our Lunar New Year dinner.  

Cooked in its own juices for many hours in a Crock pot, it does not need much seasoning or much of anything else really, although I added a dash of Shaoxing wine to accentuate its excellent flavours. The whole house was filled with its wonderful aroma while the Abalone was being cooked.
