How long can Abalone be frozen?

You can freeze fresh abalone, as long as the muscle has been cleaned and the flesh cut into steaks. Wrap steaks individually in proper freezer wrap or freezer-safe bags and store them in the freezer for no more than two months. If the abalone you buy is already frozen, use it before two months are up.

Similarly, it is asked, how long can you keep paua in the freezer?

If it was frozen from fresh then you've got a good 6-12 months' life there depending on quality and so long as it's airtight - freezer burn will destroy the goodness. Just add a little flour and some beaten egg.

Also, how do you keep abalone alive and fresh? Keep them moist under a towel or some kelp. If you put them in a bucket or ice chest full of seawater, they will die fairly quickly. Kept moist and cool, they may well live 24 hours or even more, out of water.

How do you thaw an abalone?

Place frozen abalone with shell down on trays in the refrigerator. Defrost abalone in the refrigerator (set at 2°C to 6°C / 35°F to 43°F) for approximately 24 hours until the abalone is completely defrosted and the abalone's core temperature is the same temperature as the refrigerator.
