The Chinese New Year Abalone Guide

Browse the latest bouquets in our collection below

Abalones are known for their distinct appearance, texture, and taste, but there’s a lot more going for this delicious, prized seafood delicacy.

Things 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 level.

Why 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.

The 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.
