Summer Grilled Abalone

Abalone Recipe


  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup sake or dry sherry
  • 2 Tbls peanut or vegetable oil
  • 2 Tbls minced fresh ginger
  • 12 60-70mm prepared abalone
  • 12 abalone shells; cleaned
  • 4 water chestnuts; chopped fine
  • 2 Tbls coriander; chopped fine


Mix soy sauce, sake, oil, ginger, water chestnuts and coriander in a medium bowl. Place the abalone meat in the marinade; marinate for 10 minutes.

Return the marinated abalone into shells and place them on either a charcoal grill or a gas grill. Grill for 1 minute and then with tongs turn the abalone over in shell to grill the other side; another 30 seconds until meat is lightly browned. Heat the reserved marinade until boiling and use as a dipping sauce. Serve abalone immediately
