Pan Fried Abalone

I was lucky enough to get my hands on some fresh farmed abalone from Greenfish. Farmed sustainably in Hermanus, this awesome source of Omega 3 has a unique flavour. Utterly delicious!

4 min
  1. 6 fresh abalone
  2. 1/2 cup flour
  3. 2 tsp crushed salt
  4. 1 tsp black pepper
  5. 50g butter
  6. 1 Tbsp olive oil
  1. Clean abalone with a vegetable brush thoroughly to remove any black residue.
  2. Pat dry with paper towel.
  3. Slice abalone into thin rounds (I managed to get about 2-3 slices from each abalone).
  4. Using a meat mallet, pound the abalone until tender.
  5. Mix flour, salt and pepper together in a bowl.
  6. Dip abalone slices into the flour mixture, coating evenly and set aside in a separate dish.
  7. Heat the butter and olive oil in a pan on a high heat and wait until it's bubbling.
  8. Fry the coated abalone slices in the pan for 2 minutes a side until nice and golden.
  9. Remove from the pan and place on paper towel to absorb any excess oil.
  10. Serve with lemon mayonnaise (recipe in notes).
