Perlemoen Coquille Recipe

This perlemoen coquille recipe is the first seafood dish we make when we visit the Cape Whale Coast. This beautiful coastal area is renowned for its unique shellfish varieties of which the most famous are perlemoen (abalone), and alikreukel (periwinkle). The Afrikaans word perlemoen is derived from the dutch meaning mother-of-pearl.

The recipe name perlemoen coquille sounds fancy, but in a nutshell, the word coquille simply means a seafood dish cooked in its own shell or container., like a ramekin. This recipe is easy to prepare and if you are familiar with the area and its beautiful people you will know, there is nothing too fancy about it.

There are many ways to prepare perlemoen but this is the most enjoyable dish for me. If you have a good perlemoen recipe please share your recipe on this page and tell us everything about your recipe. You can also tag us on our Facebook page where we can share food and cooking ideas together.

Thank you and happy perlemoen coquille cooking.
