Went to Diana's this morning to get some Monk fish and Sable fish for dinner. Saw they have three 'rare' green shell fish products on sale! Ended up buying a whole bunch of the delicacies!
They were: Live' Green shell mussels from New Zealand ( a dozen for $5.25 ), Live Green sea urchins ( 3 for $4.50!! size of a pessimon. What a deal! ) and Live green shell Abalone ( $4.99 each - size of a small lemon ).
Steamed both the abalone and mussels just now! Amazing!!! Especially the mussels. Plump, super sweet and chewy!! Exactly as I remembered! Guess I have to make weekly trips from now on!!! Next time I will braise the abalone with premium soya, Sake and Murin or even eat it sashimi style! As for the Uni, very fresh and sweet. However, be sure to rinse off some of the salty sea water!
