Abalone

About

Abalone is also a fancy food used for celebrations such as wedding ceremonies. It is one of “Mie brand” products, and it is considered as an origin of the decorative ornament placed on a special envelope called “Noshi-bukuro” used for happy occasions. In Toba and Shima region, there is a saw-toothed coastline whose rocky shore is an ideal fishing ground of abalones. And “Ama fishing”, or women divers’ fishing method of skin diving has been commonly performed since the old days. Their fishing season is from January to August. The sole facility in Japan,” The Imperial Abalone Preparation Workshop”, where thin strips of the dried abalone; offering to Grand Shrines are made, is in Kuzaki in Toba City. “Noshiawabi” or thin strips of the dried abalone have been made by the local people. When cooked as grilled abalone, abalone sashimi served alive, steamed abalone with sake, the dishes can give good chewy texture.
