Yield: 1 Servings
|2 cups||Chicken broth|
|5 tablespoons||Plus 1 tsp. peanut oil|
|1 can||(1 lb.) abalone|
|1 tablespoon||Rice wine|
|3 tablespoons||Oyster sauce|
|½ tablespoon||Soy sauce|
|1 tablespoon||Cornstarch dispersed in 1 tbsp. cold water|
|1 teaspoon||Sesame oil|
Bring 1 cup of the chicken broth to a boil. Add 3 tablespoons of the peanut oil and 1 teaspoon salt. Cut each lettuce leaf into two halves lengthwise.
Cook in the boiling broth for 10 seconds. Drain lettuce and place on a platter. Discard cooking liquid. Remove abalone from can and slice in ¼-inch round pieces. Boil in boiling water for 5 seconds; drain and set aside. Heat 2 tablespoons peanut oil in frying pan. Pour in wine and add remaining 1 cup chicken broth immediately. Bring to a boil; add oyster sauce, soy sauce, and sugar. When it boils again, add abalone and cornstarch-water mixture slowly, stirring constantly. When it thickens, add 1 teaspoon sesame oil and the remaining teaspoon of the peanut oil. Arrange the abalone attractively over lettuce leaves. Pour the remaining sauce over the top. Serve immediately.
