I had this interesting dish of abalone for dinner the other day. If you don’t know what abalone is, it is a sea snail and is considered a Chinese delicacy in East Asia and other countries such as France and Latin America. This abalone was captured by my uncle who is licensed to catch these things in California.

The texture is a bit tough…like chewing on rubber; which is something I’m not used to. I’m still not a fan of oysters, clams, and the like. However, the abalone meat was very flavorful. You can stir-fry it with soy sauce, scallions, and other basic ingredients.
