You take the abalone out of the shell, put it on a solid surface and hit it very hard with a heavy tool. The tension in the muscle must be released. Then slice it into discs which you can slow fry with your selection of fish spices. after 5 minutes remove from heat and dry on a paper towel. Prepare a mix of squashed tomato, basil, fine onion (or spring onion), a little garlic and heat it up. Then add abalone and let simmer until you can't resist it any more. Open a bottle of Strawberry Fields Red and get hold of a good baguette. Consume at leisure - do not share with the neighbours - they don't understand abalone smile
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Wow! I had no idea, Louis!! Learn something new every day! smile
I have seen people cook with this, is that right? Australia has it
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: I had no idea until Louis from South Africa described it here!
Just look at those iridescent colours. Gorgeous!
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Aren't they beautiful! I have several pieces of jewelry made from abalone!

Wonderful colours Elizabeth! Enjoy your stay.

But did Shaw pay?
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: I don't know - I didn't... smile
