 Not pissy little Roes, which don't taste as good anyway.

brown and greens are great  cut em thin give em a belt , I like em deep fried with batter or shallots and garlic butter .

generally find the greens on the flat rock and the browns on the ledges .

Roes will be found on the cracks between rocks and if your in an area that hasn’t been hammered look for .....

Cant give it all away lads .

Must admit posted to tease as west coast closed.

Well, I did it for a living, for a while

 In South Oz, out of Port Lincoln, before I came over here. Get a big Greenlip, slice through for big patties, tenderise, do in egg and breadcrumb. Squeeze lemon juice on, hard to beat. When  I first came over here, I went with some blokes to get abs. "these are abs? WTF" never liked them as much. In fact,I can't recall a single time I ever actually went gathering, even when they were easily available off the reef here, no closed seasons. Just spoilt, I guess.

love all the abs ... once

love all the abs ...

once we have reached our quota , i leave my catch bag in water for up to 30 mins ...let the buggers relax , before we put them into an ice slurry ...this seesm to help keep them softer for the plate

once there home , i remove meat, and gently ''TAP ''it with a hammer about 10-15 times each one , while holding them with a finger nail on a solid wooden board ... no bashing ...just enough to soften the meat ... then crumb them

cook em super quick in pan with hot oil , drain and serve with lemon wedge and sweet chilli mayonaise ...

totally soft and delicous ......anyone who says there tough or chewy is not preparing them correclty , no matter the variety , greens , browns or roe
