sonoma coast abalone

ed | Aug 13, 200404:06 AM

i occasionally get surplus abalone from a diver friend who gets more than he cares to eat on dive trips up the sonoma coast. i also heard the barter trade with restaurants and wineries is being limited by 'the authorities'. so basically, i dunno what to do with the critters. i guess i'm looking for tips on where i might still be able to barter them, or good recipes (particularly chinese braised with mushrooms and veggies) or maybe someone who's willing to take them as the price of admission to some quirky festivity.
basically, i just want them to enjoy a more glorious fate than chilling in my freezer.
ideas?
