Japan Live Wild Ezo Abalone 天然日本活蝦夷鮑魚
Japanese food culture is one of the most highly prized in the world, with Japan becoming the only country aside from France to have its cuisine included on the UNESCO cultural heritage list.
Awabi, or abalone, is a large sea snail with a crisp but chewy texture that tastes much akin to a squid or a scallop. Unlike other shellfish, awabi is best savored in early summer and can be eaten raw, steamed, boiled, or grilled. When it is served raw as sashimi, awabi flesh is sliced thinly and eaten with soy sauce. Awabi sashimi has a crispy texture and since awabi mainly eat seaweed, tastes of the sea. Japanese people especially appreciate the bitter taste of the green liver. Baked awabi is prepared and served as steak. Butter and soy sauce are often used to enrich the flavor, and the cooked flesh has a softer texture. Sake and wine go well with it.
*Please acknowledge there are farmed abalone in Japan and also in Korea. We guarantee our abalone is 100% wild.
