Recipe: Braised Mushrooms and Fish Maw with Abalone

Father’s Day is coming (this Sunday!). Most Asian parents love abalone, fish maw and mushrooms so I figured this would be the perfect dish to spoil them with this weekend.

For this dish, I'm using canned South African abalone, and I have to say I'm really impressed by their size. They’re ready to eat, so all you need to do is just heat them through slightly in the braising sauce. As for the fish maw, they’re like sponges and will soak up all the flavours of the delicious braising sauce.

You can get all these ingredients on Great Ocean Dried Seafood, link here: (Note: Fried butterfly fish maw currently on Buy 2 Free 1 promo; use code "GREAABAL" to get RM10 off the abalone, promo valid from now until 19 June only)
