you need to know before eating abalone this Chinese New Year
Abalones are snails that come from the sea.
They have a shell on one side and a foot muscle on the other, which allows them
to crawl along the ocean floor. These marine snails are a fantastic source of
protein and omega 3 fatty acid, which is great for your overall heart and eye
health. They also contain a wide range of essential minerals such as iodine, phosphorous
and iron, and are rich in vitamins, namely vitamins B12 and E. Abalones are
very low in saturated fat, so you don’t need to worry about your cholesterol
is eating / gifting abalone at Chinese New Year considered lucky?
The words for abalone in Chinese sounds
very similar to the words “guaranteed abundance” in Chinese, a wonderfully
auspicious symbol, especially during Chinese New Year where good fortune,
health and wealth holds such a high place. Not only is this a fabulous addition
to your family meals, but it is also a great corporate gift.
benefits of buying a canned abalone instead of the fresh and frozen ones
Abalone has a nice buttery, salty taste to
it, and is quite textured and chewy. Fresh abalone is usually the chef’s
choice, but it is very hard to obtain, not to mention it can really break the
bank even for a single meal. Frozen abalone is also good, but needs to be
thawed slowly, which can be a little bit time consuming and tricky, especially if
you are preparing dinner for a big group.
For your utmost convenience, canned abalone
is easy to add to your Chinese New Year food recipes. These usually contain
salt or are braised in sauce in the abalone tin can, so there is no need to add
too much flavouring to it. Very little preparation is needed with canned
abalone, so it is ideal for a busy time like Chinese New Year.
