Seared Abalone with Roasted Asparagus and Coke Farm Polenta
Whole seared abalone with a blistered cherry tomato, red onion and wine compote. I accompanied this with local asparagus and Coke Farm polenta. I would pair it with the wine you used in the compote. I go with a sauvignon blanc as my cooking wine for this dish.
