Carefully scrape the pith off the mandarin peel with a sharp knife and cut into fine strips. 

Prepare the abalone for steaming by lightly scoring the flesh and making a horizontal cut along the side of the abalone, between the two wings. Place the abalone back into their shells on a heat proof dish, with the meat facing up. 

Sprinkle the  shredded ginger and mandarin peel over the abalone and then drizzle over the seasoning mixture.

Steam for 3-4 minutes depending on size, careful not to overcook.

 

Meanwhile, heat a little oil in a wok until very hot. Remove the abalone from the steamer and drain the liquid off the plate.Ladle hot oil over the abalone, you should hear a sizzling sound and the meat should curl up around the edge.

Plate up the abalone and garnish with the spring onions.

Finish with another drizzle of the fish soy dressing.
