When celebrating the Chinese New Year, Singaporeans like to eat Chinese food with dishes that have a lot of auspicious effects. One of the most famous dishes that is often served on the table during this festival is abalone with broccoli. For those who make this dish, abalone is a symbol of abundance and good fortune. It is believed that eating this seafood will bring you all the good fortune and prosperity you hope for in the new year. Broccoli, on the other hand, symbolizes a healthy diet.
It serves as a reminder to us to start the new year fresh and energized, fully prepared to face whatever challenges come our way. These two ingredients together make a perfect and superior dish that is not only delicious and tasty but also nutritious. Braised Abalone and Broccoli in Oyster Sauce is a great dish to serve for special occasions, including Asian cooking. The abalone is braised until tender and then coated with a flavorful sauce. Abalone is considered a marine mollusk and is considered a great ingredient in many Asian dishes. It has a mild and pleasant flavor and a chewy texture that can become soft and buttery when cooked properly.
Add all the ingredients for the braised sauce, soaked mushrooms, and oysters, bring to a boil over medium heat, and simmer for 15 minutes. Close the pot with a lid while boiling and drain in an outer pot. Keep it on one side for at least 8 hours. After 8 hours, boil the contents and then keep them aside for later use. Then put water, salt, and cooking oil in a pot and boil it. When boiling, add broccoli florets and continue boiling for 3 minutes. After 3 minutes, drain and set aside to use. Serve on a serving plate with steamed broccoli, cooked braised mushrooms, abalone, razor clams, and a drizzle of sauce.
Cut the broccoli into bite-sized pieces and soak them in cold salted water for 10 minutes. Then cook the broccoli in boiling water for 6 minutes, remove it from the abalone, and place it on a plate. Remove the mushrooms and heat the oil. Saute the garlic and mushrooms until fragrant, then add the abalone sauce. Continue to simmer the mushrooms on low heat for 25 minutes. Remove the broccoli and abalone to a serving plate. Pour the cooked mushrooms and sauce over the cooked ingredients and serve.
