Anthony's Fish Grotto is the place where I fell in love with deep fried squid, both the rings and the tentacles. It was yummy. But then again, I had real abolone in this little whole-in-the-wall Chinese restaurant located in Santee, that made great chicken chow mein. The abolone was as tough as rubber and had a taste I din't care for, which suprised me as I love most shellfish. It may just have been the way it was prepared. A diving instructor that I had said abolone was truly deliscious.

Up here in the U.P., the mock abolone is as close as I can probably get to the real thing. I did get skate up in Canada though. It was very good. It tasted like what I expected the abolne to taste like.

If you were in San Diego I hope you tried Point Loma Seafood's. I sold them fish in the seventies, back when I commercial fished for a livening. They have the best fried Squid, it's the breading they use Mrs. Kelly's They sell it there also. The last Abalone I bought was $120 a dozen for reds 1981 and had to drive to Oxnard to get it from a commercial diver friend. He sold the boat and permit the next season. So I think I can still remember how it is suppose to taste, also we had it a lot when I was a kid growing up in Mexico
(my parents had a house 18 miles this side of Ensenada)

Here is my report on this dish. As I said when I posted this recipe ,I had not tried it yet. So tonight after marinating it for thirty or so hours, I made it.
please keep in mind that I know what abalone should taste like. To my disappointment it did not. But it had a mild flavor like it. adding the lemon juice as I ate it bite by bite made it have a sea food taste, or helped with the taste. I did not use tarter sauce.
Now the KEY ingredient the Clam juice did do some thing that I did not expect. Besides adding the sea food taste it tenderized the chicken to the point / well I don't know how to say this? I guess it would be like Velveting the chicken. (I am a very strong believer that recipes have KEY ingredients that Make Them WORK) One other thing I did was to treat the chicken like abalone, what I mean is that I did not Pound chicken breasts flat with rolling pin. I used a tenderizing hammer, smooth side to get it to spread out then with caution used the diamond side careful not to make mush **** out of it. The rich flavor the abalone has I believe came from the Ritz crackers and the sea food from the clan juice. now with that said, this chicken Was The TENDERS THAT I HAVE EVER EATEN!!! The clam juice must break it down I'm guessing.I have a rating scale I like to use and will post it under this post. I give this recipe a #6.



My rating scale is a little more detailed. Anything "5" or below doesn't see the light of day again!

1 - VERY POOR
2 - POOR
3 - EDIBLE
4 - FAIR
5 - AVERAGE
6 - GOOD
7 - QUITE GOOD
8 - VERY GOOD
9 - EXCELLENT
10 - FANTASTIC

Kim, if one had never eaten abalone, how do you think they would rate it?

I took some to work today and tested it on a co worker. Who never had Abalone He liked it, I asked him if it had a seafood taste he said it did. I asked him if how would he rate it on a 1 to 10 he said a 10 but his scale is not as detailed as mine.
