Here in the States, Thanksgiving is an exciting family feast where food brings together family and friends all around the dinner table! Although turkey is usually the dinner main course, we believe the sides are the supporting role in making the feast interesting and delicious!
If you happen to serve our delicious wild abalone as an appetizer, be sure to keep the abalone brine from the can! This makes a savory base for your gravy without the juicy flavors going to waste. Once your make your abalone gravy be sure to pour that over all your sides. It goes especially well with mashed potatoes, stuffing, and even crab cakes!
1 Can Calmex Wild Abalone (brine)
1 Tablespoon Flour
1 Stick of Butter
Salt + Pepper to taste
1 Tablespoon Heavy Cream
Heat a small simmer pan with butter until melted
Add some salt and pepper to taste
Sprinkle 1 tablespoon of flour and mix until thick
Add your Calmex Wild Abalone brine slowly and just a few tablespoons at a time while still mixing constantly
Be sure to add your tablespoon of heavy cream for a creamier texture and keep mixing!
The key is to constantly stir so the gravy does not clump up and get chunky.
Serve in sauce dish for your guests and watch it be used for every side dish!
Enjoy and Happy Thanksgiving from CALMEX!
