1 whole abalone removed from shell, cleaned and tenderized. (put in a 1 gallon ziplock bag and smack with a 2x4  4-5 times on each side. not to hard or it will split open, you will feel the texture change)

place in 2 layers of alumminnum foil.

add:

2 tsp. capers

1 tsp garlic powder

1 tbl spn lemon juice

1/4 cup good white wine

1/4 tsp gound pepper

2tbl spn butter

close foil tightly, place in backing pan.  bake in oven or egg at 350' for 1 hour.

save juices, slice vertically, a little less than 1/4" thick, place on serving platter & pour saved juices over the top and serve ASAP.  GREAT with wild rice and fresh steamed veggies.

    Yep, Stike your right!  An Abalone is a ocean snail.  Minimmum legal size is 7" across the shell.  We freedive for them in 1-35ft of water. One of my favorite ways to fix them is to slice, pound, dredge in flour, dip in beaten eggs and flash fry in a REALLY HOT pan.  Served with a green salad and fresh sourdough bread.
