Abalone Chicken Congee

Update: First posted in Jan 2009, now updated with new photos and improved recipe.

Many Chinese celebrating Chinese New Year will be buying canned abalones during the festive season. Abalone is an auspicious luxury food item, as it signifies increasing abundance (年年’包’有余) in the coming year. I use abalone in a wide variety of dishes, such as steamboat, pen cai, yu sheng and braised abalone with mushrooms.

One of my all-time favourite abalone dishes will be this homely bowl of abalone chicken congee (鲍鱼鸡丝粥). The congee (or porridge depending on the texture you like) is really sweet as it is simmered in an umami stock consisting of scallops, chicken and abalone broth. It is a luxurious yet relatively light meal at the same time – definitely a wonderful dish to enjoy after a hearty reunion dinner.

  1. Oooo I love congee but I’ve never tried any other flavor than salt pork and century egg. I’ll have to look for canned abalone next time I’m in c-town.

  2. Wow give me a bowl of that. Canned abalone is so expensive.

  3. I’ve never cooked abalone, because the thought of running something so expensive scares me. The congee sounds delish. How do you know when the abalone is cooked, or is canned abalone pre-cooked?

  4. Oh my GOD this just made me soooo homesick! Ahh!! Your pictures are SO beautiful, and abalone and chicken congee is like my favourite comfort foods of all time. Mmm! Happy Chinese Niu Year to you too!

  5. my hubby would be in cloud nine if i serve him this… :)

  6. I want a bowl of that! Abalone, chicken, congee yum yum.

  7. Wah this porridge is very luxurious …. :up: :roll:

  8. This looks so good, will have to try soon (without the abalone) :)
