In canned abalone, the amount usually ranges from 1 whole piece to 14 pieces or more in a tin. Depending on the brand, you can end up with different sizes in one tin. For example, cans with a net weight of 425 g may actually have a drained weight ranging from 50 g to 220 g. As a renowned domestic brand since the 1960s, most Singaporeans would definitely have heard of Teck Sang on Hong Kong Street, Singapore. While they specialize in traditional nostalgic Asian cuisine ingredients, they also offer some of the best-canned abalones in Singapore like the "Chuen Jia-Fu" and "Calmex" Abalones.
Take, for example, the Chuen Jia-Fu Mexican Abalone (available from Teck Sang) that stands out among the sea of natural abalone flavours on the market. Otherwise, you can always opt for more classic flavours such as the Premium Brine Abalone and Premium Braised Abalone ranges (both available in Teck Sang) that offer both quality and quantity. Mexican wild abalone is one of the most unique varieties of abalone on the planet. They have grown in crystal clear waters with the best salinity and also temperature levels.
The dominant navigation over the waters presses the abalone to exercise their muscles when they relocate during feeding. This makes abalone meat much more flexible and delicious. For an economic alternative, get small abalone from big brands such as On-Hing or Golden Ocean Abalones. Baby abalone can be easily distributed individually instead of regular-sized abalone which will require you to cut them before serving.
Frozen Abalone in Shell (FOS) - Live abalone is cleaned delicately, and after that, it quickly freezes independently in its shell or is removed from the cover, cleaned, and then quickly frozen. Abalones are peeled and cleaned and the meat is cooled very carefully to reduce the temperature level at a slow pace. When an order is to be loaded, the specific abalone is placed in a lined cardboard box or polystyrene box and everything is secured and ready for export.
In the established years, Mexican, Australian and South African wild abalone are known for their texture and flavour. I've never tried it myself, but from what I know online, fresh abalone usually tastes a little more textural. It turns out that abalone is consumed not only because of its good taste but also because of its auspicious symbolism.
As one of the most reviewed and awarded abalone brands in Singapore and internationally, you can definitely count on Chuen Jia Fu, SKYLIGHT, New Moon and Fortune Brands of abalone to provide you with the best-canned abalone. In general, abalone is very nutritious thanks to its rich source of protein, and it also has a combination of essential vitamins and minerals such as calcium and iron.
