Abalone Sashimi

 Abalones (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Haliotis) are expensive! So, the Japanese don’t have them often in Japan. Occasional Food – that is what abalones are. Usually, abalones are served in a set menu along with other seafoods or meat. Here are some examples of those:

(Did you spot abalones?)

 Personally, I love simple sashimi of abalones. Fresh abalones with freshly prepared wasabi (horseradish) – BLISS!

 However, people tend to get bored of one particular food, even abalones, pretty quickly, right? So, chefs of all kinds of cuisines have to come up with a new idea of cooking abalones like below:

 Yap – I appreciate all those including “abalone sushi,” but I love abalone sashimi best!! If you live in California or New York, where you find authentic Japanese restaurants, order abalone sashimi. One piece of abalone will cost you probably … $20 – $50 (if it’s really fresh). But it is worth it. If you don’t appreciate that very one piece, don’t call yourself “a Japanese connoisseur.”
