1, 2, 3, 4, etc… etc… headed abalone is a term used to grade the pricing, or the size or a special feature of the abalone. The ‘heads’ refer to the weight of the abalone.
Traditionally, it’s counted in 1 kati or 600g in metrics. 1-headed abalone means there is only 1 piece in a kati i.e. 600g each. 2-headed means there are 2 abalone in a kati i.e. 300g each. Mine was 3-headed so it was 200g (600g/3head = 200g).
Time to eat!
