This is standard Chinese New Year fare and it’s very easy to cook. All you need to do is to open a can of abalone, drain out the liquid (keep it to make a soup with ginger, asparagus and mushrooms) then slice the abalone thinly on a cutting board.
Heat up a wok, add a tiny bit of oil, then fry some minced garlic until the latter is brown and fragrant. Throw in the abalone slices, add a couple of tablespoons of oyster sauce and stir fry for 1 minute. Serve with rice.
