Alternative abalone appetizers

Abalone Sashimi

I was craving abalone, but did not want to go through a complete abalone fry production. The smaller 7.5 inch abalone was more than enough for a nice sashimi plate, and enough abalone ceviche to last for a couple days as a side dish and snack.

Abalone Ceviche

This is the recipe I used as I guide:
1 pound abalone steaks
6 tablespoons fresh lime juice
2 tablespoons safflower oil
1/4 cup green chili sauce
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1 clove garlic, minced
1/2 teaspoon sugar
3 drops Tabasco sauce
1 lime, thinly sliced
fresh coriander sprigs

Pound abalone lightly, then slice into thin strips about 1 inch wide and 1 1/2 inches long. Place in a small glass bowl. Mix together lime juice, oil, chili sauce, salt, pepper, garlic, sugar and Tabasco sauce. Pour this mixture over abalone and mix well. Cover and chill about 4 hours or overnight. At serving time, spoon into an abalone shell or scallop shells and garnish with lime and coriander sprigs. Makes 16.
I lost track of where I found that recipe. Somewhere on the intertubes. If I find it, I''l update this post with a link and credit. I like ceviche spicy and used Mrs. Renfro Jalapeno Salsa for the green chile sauce. Works great.
