    Awesome and Fresh

    These abalone come out perfect I made a very traditional Chinese dish (my first time too) Grandma's soy braised abalone and pork belly. The abalone defrosted overnight (c.18hrs) in the fridge. I shucked them and was relatively easy to handle after I got the hang of it. I pressure cooked the abalone to tenderise them and create a masterstock. It came out perfect. Very much a delicacy and it was the first time my family here had tried it. They loved it.

    A great source of abalone

    We ordered the greenlip abalone (7pc) from Terra Mare Prime and was extremely happy with the quality of the product received. Not only was it exactly what I was looking for, the abalone was fresh and delicious. The abalone was bigger as promised, and the customer service was phenomenal. Not only was the product excellent, the shipping time was very quick, and the transaction was smooth and efficient. Now that I have found a great source of high quality Austraian abalone in California, I will continue to order from Terra Mare Prime. If you want delicious, fresh abalone from Australia, this is the place to go to.

Miso Glazed Abalone

Yumbah Greenlip Abalone Yumbah Greenlip Abalone


  • 5 x 7pc Yumbah Greenlip Abalone
  • ½ cup Mirin
  • ¼ cup Sake
  • 3 tbsp Miso paste (yellow or white)
  • 1 tbsp white sugar
  • 1 tsp sesame oil
  • Green onion, to garnish, sliced
  • 1 tbsp olive oil


Defrost abalone following defrosting guide below. Then shuck, trim, and clean. Instructions can be found below. Also clean the shells and put aside for serving.

Score the flat side of the abalone in a cross hatch pattern (see picture) and set aside.

In a small saucepan combine the Mirin and Sake, and bring to the boil for 30 seconds. Turn down to a low heat and stir in Miso paste, sugar and sesame oil. Let reduce on a low heat for 5-8 min until glaze begins to thicken. Turn off and set aside.

Place a pan on the lowest possible heat. Add olive oil and put abalone in pan, scored side down. Leave in the pan for 20 minutes without moving.

Remove abalone from the pan and dice into cubes through scored lines, then add back to the pan. Still on low heat, add the miso glaze. Stir to thoroughly mix together.

Increase heat if needed to help have a heavier glaze. The abalone should have a medium brown sear, with a glossy smooth finish. Spoon back into dry shell and garnish with green onions.

Serve immediately.



    All Yumbah frozen abalone should ideally be thawed slowly. Under no circumstance should abalone be force-thawed in hot or warm water or in a microwave. Only use recommended defrosting methods (see below). Once abalone is thawed, wash product thoroughly in cold fresh water prior to shucking.


    Rest the front of the spoon or spatula against the muscle attached to the inside top of the shell. Move the spoon or spatula inward, cutting the connecting muscle close to the shell.


    Remove the meat from the shell. Using a sharp knife, trim the gut away from abalone meat and remove hard mouthparts.


    Using a paper towel, remove excess moisture. Slice the meat and cook as desired. Click here for popular Yumbah Abalone recipes!

  • Thawing

Defrosting Instructions

Only use recommended defrosting methods (see A and B below) on Yumbah frozen abalone. Thawing in HOT, WARM OR AMBIENT WATER OR IN A MICROWAVE may lead to tissue damage (meat structure breakdown). Do not cook the frozen abalone or abalone not completely defrosted.

A) Slow Thaw - Refrigerator Defrosting: (Best for all cooking methods)

Remove frozen abalone from the box and bag. Place frozen abalone with shell down on trays in the refrigerator. Defrost abalone in the refrigerator (set at 2°C to 6°C / 35°F to 43°F) for approximately 24 hours until the abalone is completely defrosted and the abalone’s core temperature is the same temperature as the refrigerator.

B) Fast Thaw - Iced Water Defrosting - (Not suitable for boiling the abalone)

Mix 10 liters (2.64 gallons) cold water, 1kg (2.2046lbs) of ice cubes and 350 grams (~12.34oz) of salt, until the water is < 3°C (37°F) and salt is dissolved. The ratio can be altered for smaller quantities - (10:1:0.350). Remove frozen abalone from plastic bag and place into icy water shell side down in a single layer for 4.5 hours, stir the water regularly. Add extra ice as required to maintain water temperature at less than 3°C (37°F) for full 4.5 hours.


Cook and/or consume immediately after defrosting and remove any shell fragments before consumption.

Cooking Advice:

Yumbah abalone has delicate flesh and we suggest cooking at a temperature of 70°C / 148°F. Excessive cooking time and temperature can lead to meat shrinkage, especially when cooking our smaller abalone (less than 71 g / 2.5 oz).
