Anyone ever tried oyster mushrooms?

Some people might think they are gross, but I tried them awhile back...and they are good.. they kinda have a seafood taste to them.

I didn't actually go out in the woods and get mine, LOL.. they sell them at a market called Wegmans here. I just sautéed mine with alittle garlic in olive oil and had that as a side to some sizzlin' prawn (like shrimp, but smaller). I call it sizzlin' prawn. You could use shrimp, also.. in alittle olive oil, minced garlic, minced chile pepper (or a dash of red pepper flakes), and of course fresh lemon wedges!

I love them, they are also nice with other mushrooms cooked in a wee bit of stock with some soy and served with rice, pasta or in an omlette. Yum!

sounds good kyles!

I would also have to have a good piece of pan casero (spanish bread) to soak up the juice! And, why not a drop or two of dry sherry!

I agree that they have a slightly seafood flavor to them, guess that's how they got their name (or we have a great power of suggestion going). Can't get them often. But when I can I plan a stir fry around them, or use them with a bunch of other types of mushrooms in a sauce to get a real depth of mushroom flavor.

Oyster mushrooms are great. I have them a few times a month.

I quickly saute them over high heat with shallots and butter. Then I add a bit of chicken stock and toss with pasta, basil, and parmesan.

I like mushrooms, period. These, though, have a very distinct flavor (like you said Claire).

your ideas sound good kyles, coco, claire and tom
