DIRECTIONS

  • Pour milk into a large shallow bowl.
  • In another shallow bowl, combine flour seasoned with salt and freshly ground black pepper and corn meal.
  • Melt 1/2 cup butter over moderate heat in a heavy 12 to 14 inch skillet.
  • While the butter is melting, dip each abalone steak first into the milk, then the flour mixture, so that each piece is well coated.
  • When the butter in the skillet has stopped foaming, quickly saute each steak on each side no more than 15 to 20 seconds per side.
  • IMPORTANT: Overcooking will cause the abalone to be tough and you will have wasted lots of money!
  • As each steak is sauteed, remove from the skillet and place on a warm platte.
  • When all the steaks are sauteed, sprinkle with lemon juice and parsley.
  • Place platter in a warm oven.
  • In a heavy skillet, melt 1/4 cup butter and saute the almonds over moderate heat for 4 to 6 minutes or until they are golden brown, stirring constantly.
  • Remove the platter from the oven, pour the almonds and butter over the abalone steaks and serve at once.
