Ingredients
  • 1 large abalone
  • 4 spring onions, green parts only, thinly sliced (save the white parts for the stock)
  • 8 medium Shiitake mushrooms' sliced
  • 100g cooked vermicelli noodles
  • 3 tablespoons chopped fresh coriander
For dressing
  • ½ cup oyster sauce
  • 2½ tablespoons soy sauce
  • 2½ tablespoons sesame oil
  • 7g fresh ginger
  • 1 tablespoon caster sugar
  • 1 tablespoon mirin
For stock
  • 175ml shaoxing wine
  • 175ml soy sauce
  • 600ml fish stock
  • 100g sugar (use Chinese rock sugar if available)
  • 4 spring onions, reserved white parts only
  • 2 star anise
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 15g fresh ginger, chopped
  • 3 pieces mandarin peel (you can substitute with orange peel)
  • ½ cinnamon stick
Instructions
  1. Begin by making the stock: Add all ingredients for the stock into a pan and start to heat. Once the liquid starts to boil remove from the heat immediately and leave to cool and infuse.
  2. Clean and prepare the abalone (see How to Clean Abalone and How to Prepare Abalone)
  3. Once the stock has cooled down add the whole abalone and return to the heat until it begins to boil, remove immediately and place in the fridge to cool.
  4. Make the dressing by adding all the ingredients together and mixing well.
  5. Once the abalone has cooled enough to handle remove from the stock (you can use the stock again but only once more), using a sharp knife slice the abalone into very thin slices.
  6. Place the sliced abalone into a bowl and add the coriander, mushrooms and the remainder of the spring onions and dress slightly with a little of the dressing.
  7. In a separate bowl also dress the noodles lightly with the dressing.
  8. Place the noodles in the bottom of the cleaned abalone shells from earlier. Carefully place the abalone mix on top of the noodles and steam for 2 to 3 minutes in a pan with boiling water or a steamer for 2 minutes.
  9. Serve immediately.
