    2                    Abalone Steaks
    3      Tablespoons   Butter
    1      Tablespoon    Oil
                         Salt
                         Freshly ground pepper
    1      Tablespoon    Lemon juice
    2      Sprigs        Parsley
 
 Tenderize the abalone steaks by pounding with a wooden mallet.  Use
 persistent, firm strikes, and flatten them to quarter inch thickness.
 Do not overcook, or the abalone will become tough and rubbery.  Thirty
 seconds to a side is enough.  Less is better.
 
 Pat the abalone dry.  Melt the butter with the oil in a large skillet.
 When the butter foams and is very hot, add the steaks.  Season with
 salt and pepper and fry 30 seconds on each side.  Transfer to a warm
 platter, drizzle with lemon juice and garnish with parsley.
