BABY PAUA

The other day I had the opportunity to cook for a friend and his family, he got baby Paua, there is a company in Napier who grows Pauas in big pools, I didn’t feel guilty (for the size) using them because they were farm raised and not from the ocean.
Cooked in sous vide, 65 C x 90 min after very thin sliced served with tomato water infused cucumber (40C x 20 min) wakame gel and alioli. It was a complete challenge for me; I was concerned about the texture … hard.. soft.. chewy… but not, was so delicate in flavor, it went very well with cucumber and tomato.
