Pan Fried Abalone Steak

A quick and delicious way to enjoy abalone!


  • 8 small or 4 large fresh or frozen* abalone steaks
  • 6 tbsp butter or margarine
  • 1 to 2 tbsp lemon or lime juice
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tablespoons water

How to Prepare:

  1. Melt 6 tablespoons butter or margarine in a small saucepan.
  2. Add lemon or lime juice to taste.
  3. Pour flour into a wide shallow bowl; stir in salt and pepper to taste.
  4. Lightly coat abalone steaks with flour mixture; gently shake to remove excess flour. Dip in egg mixture, then dip in flour again to lightly coat.
  5. Pan-fry steaks 30 to 45 seconds on each side; turn once.

*To thaw frozen abalone: place the vacuum packed abalone steak under cold running water for about 2 minutes. Removes the steak (OK if still slightly frozen) from the vacuum pack and proceed.
