When camping at Trousers Point I met up with a couple of friends Andrew and George who we on their own Flinders Island adventure. They were great company for the week they stayed next to me.

As well as being great company Andrew was a diver and supplied Abalone on a couple of occassions..

Anybody who has ever gone camping or bush knows how good the food tastes as times. This was one of those moments.

We had about three or four kilos of abalone sliced very thinly and then cooked lightly in butter. One of the most memorable feeds I have ever had and I don’t say that lightly.

This picture is of Andrew in the hat and Brandon another friend who joined in the feast. Magnificent..and a picture of a truly decisive food moment lol

    Oh, I know the taste of abalone like that. The joy reflecting on their faces.

  • Hi Faul you understand what its like mate I had not understood how good it tastes.

    Do you have a lot of abalone in South Africa. I imagine it would be much the same as here where it is quite plentiful though a bit hard to get to.

    I haven’t tasted abalone for decades. It was nearly harvested to extinction and now there are large natural reserves and you need a permit to take them out. Every now and then there are news items about the police who caught some smuggler with tons of the stuff for export to the East. Very, very sad.
