When I was young, whenever I went to a seafood restaurant with my family, I always suggested ordering steamed abalones because we didn’t have many opportunities to eat abalones. However, most of the time the steamed abalones we have eaten at restaurants were overcooked and not very tasty, so my impression of it was not as good and I didn’t think it’s a dish that can be made very delious.
Recently, our home helper aunt bought us some beautiful tangerine peel and we had some leftover, so while walking through the market we saw some good-looking abalones we decided to make tangerine peel steamed abalones. It turned out to be surprisingly delicious, so we made it a few more times. This time we will share the key to making a delicious tangerine peel-steamed abalone!

It can be said that the tangerine peel is the star of the dish. As long as the tangerine peel is good, the taste will be truly unforgettable!
As for the abalone, it’s enough to just take them tender, so some reasonable quality Chinese Dalian abalones will be enough.
The ingredients are abalons and tangerine peel, and you only need a small piece of tangerine peel. Using good tangerine peel is the first key
After the citron peel has softened, scrape off the inner layer of the bag.
Bring water to a boil and then put the abalones in the pot and then turn off the heat and wait for a minute.
The abalone must first be scalded and then washed, and this is the second key to making it tasty. If the abalone is not dead and it is washed first, it will struggle and suffer, and the meat will come out tough and hard.

Then take out the abalone meat and remove the intestine. The abalone meat is easy to take out after scalding.
Put the abalones on a plate. Spread the citron peel threads
Preheat the steamer to 110 degrees and steam for 5 minutes.
The fire control is the third key to making steamed abalones. Most of the time when we go out to restaurants, the abalone is overcooked and becomes tough and hard. As long as the abalone remains tender, the dish will be delicious.
Finally, sprinkle a little bit of green onions on the abalone and drizzle with boiling oil to complete the dish!
We’ve tried making braised abalones with much effort before.
