    A RARE BOUNTY OF FLAVOUR

    Known for its buttery, salty taste, and slightly chewy texture (in a good way, think calamari steaks) abalone is a highly sought-after seafood. This desirability has led to populations being severely depleted, and as recently as 2010 Abalone was listed as an endangered species with demand from the far east and invader species depleting the populations on the South African coastline. While still targeted by poaching syndicates and highly regulated by the government and watchdogs, the growth of aquaculture has meant that more and more South Africans have been able to try this delicacy. Abalone takes about a decade to reach a harvestable age and this slow growth contributes to the pressure on the population. All our abalone is sustainably sourced from farms in Hermanus.

    CONTENTS

    6 x Whole Abalone with Shell (approx. 90 - 110g per abalone)

  • Instructions

    Your box will arrive fresh, simply store in your fridge, and use at your leisure (up to 2 days).

  • Eco rating

    The only sustainable way to source abalone is through aquaculture, and abalone should never be purchased from other sources. Our abalone comes from farms in Hermanus which use recirculating tanks to grow this rare sea snail. The feed used consists mostly of seaweed and is also sustainably sourced, while seaweed cultures are used to help purify the circulating water

  • Fishwife Recipes

    Abalone in Panko Crumbs

    Because of regulations and scarcity, many may wonder how to prepare this delicacy, luckily The Fishwife is here with a serving suggestion. You will need:

    • 6 fresh abalone
    • 1/2 cup flour
    • 2 tsp salt
    • 1 tsp pepper
    • 1.5 cups panko crumbs
    • 1 egg
    • 50g butter
    • 1 Tbsp olive oil

    Preparation:

    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. Beat the egg in a bowl and set aside.
    8. Pour the panko crumbs into a bowl and set aside.
    9. Dip the flour coated abalone into the egg mixture and then into the panko crumb mixture and place coated pieces into a separate bowl for frying later.
    10. Heat the butter and olive oil in a pan on a high heat and wait until its bubbling.
    11. Fry the panko coated abalone slices in the pan for 2-3 minutes a side until nice and golden.
    12. Remove from the pan and place on paper towel to absorb any excess oil.
    13. Serve with pink sauce (2 Tbsp Mayo, 1 Tbsp Tomato Sauce, 1 Tbsp Sweet Chilli Sauce, 1 Tbsp Chutney)

          A surprise package

          I ordered the fresh Abalone box, expecting a few tiny perlemoens. I was pleasantly surprised by the size and number that I received. They were perfectly packaged and still very much alive. I can’t wait to cook them this weekend.

          Southern Fried Abalone

          Fantastic !!! Abalone Box arrived right on time, professionally packaged and fresh, ready to be magically transformed into an American style Southern Fried Abalone, a dish I made up. My abalone, was my first time working with this absolutely devine creature from the farmed sea I tenderized it using the back of a metal spoon in the bag they came in. Was very handy with such great quality packaging. I used egg wash and then dusted them with my southern fried chicken flour mixture, which was absolutely the perfect choice. I fried without giving them too much bother just flipping them once on each side. I topped them with a lemon ailoi and zested lemon. They were so tender you could use your fork to cut them and fresh flavours of the abalone came through, the sauce enhanced. Ill be definitely making these most delicious treats again

          Delish from Greenfish!

          It's been close on 20 years since I last tasted the unique delicacy of abalone but thanks to Greenfish, I was able to relive that amazing experience with great friends out from Denmark, my mother, sister, my wife and kids. Thanks for taking me back to some amazingly happy memories, and knowing I'll be ordering again, back to the future too.

          Abelone

          Delivery was as scheduled and packaging to preserve the contents was excellent. The abelone were as fresh as though they had just been plucked from the water. We use a suggestion from Fishwife.co.za to pan fry the abelone and they turned out exceptionally tender and tasty.

          Very fresh and tasty

          Really good. Cleaning was a bit of a mission because of the small size. I used a recipe which was first penned around 1832 and which had been passed on to me by my mother 40 years ago. Delicious!
