What to do with an old abalone
« on: April 25, 2011, 01:22:32 PM »
I was looking through the freezer and found two abalone I gifted to my wife last year or the year before I am not sure but the freezer is only three years old.  So the ab is one to three years old.  I put them in large ziplock bags and fill them with tap water so they do not freezer burn.

I thawed them out and they looked and smelled fine.  I scrubbed all the black off in about a minute and sliced them up into thin chunks.   

I used the juice from 10 limes and soaked the ab slices over night. 

The next day I diced up

1 whole pineaple
2 mangos
1/2 a large red union
2 mediaum tomatoes
1/2 bunch of celantro diced

dump it into a bowl

Drain the juice off  the ab and dump it in and mix.

It tastes great right away but is better if you let it sit a few hours.

Sounds great!  My mom used to do a salad like that.  Great for tostadas in the summer time.
