There’s nothing like gathering with friends round the barbecue, and when we do, this is one of our go-to recipes. It is simple and delicious, but always keep in mind that abalone should never be overcooked.
- Fresh or frozen Three Friends abalone
- Plain Flour
- Salt and pepper to Taste
- Olive oil
- Remove abalone from the shell using a dessert spoon or similar, discarding the viscera.
- Slice abalone as thinly as possible with a sharp knife.
- To a bowl of plain flour add salt and pepper to taste and lightly dust the abalone.
- Ignite barbeque and heat hot plate to a high heat. (A thick bottomed frying pan can also be used)
- Add butter and a dash of olive oil to the hot plate.
- Once butter starts to foam, add the abalone to the hotplate in a single layer.
- Turn abalone over after no more than 60 seconds. (beware of overcooking, as it can make abalone tough)
- Leave for a further 60 seconds before removing from the heat and serving with a squeeze of lemon. Eat it straight off the barbeque.
