Paua Shell Fish

I made mention in the final part of my holiday blogs about a house with paua shells on the walls.

Paua is the Maori name given to three species of large edible sea snails,marine gastropod molluscs which belong to the family Haliotade, known in the United States and Australia as Abalone and in the United Kingdom as Ormer Shells…Wikipedia.

I have fond memories of eating Paua Fritters when I lived in New Zealand. Sadly I didnt find a Fish and Chip shop near my brother’s place that had them on the menu.
