Oyster Mushroom Calamari

This recipe is a simpler take on my Oyster Mushrooms with Pesto and Capers recipe


Cooking time

  • Prep: 3 min
  • Cooking: 5 min
  • Plating: 1 min


  1. 250g Oyster Mushrooms
  2. 2 tablespoons frying oil (I use soy oil, but you can use anything that won't smoke)
  3. 3 Tablespoons Flour
  4. 1/2 teaspoon salt
  5. 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  6. 1 Egg
  7. A dash of Cayanne pepper (or Indonesian Cabe chili powder)

Cooking Method

  1. Separate the mushrooms
  2. In a flat bowl, beat the egg
  3. In another flat bowl, combine the flour, salt, baking soda
  4. Heat the frying oil in a large sauté pan on high
  5. Massage the mushrooms into the egg until fully coated, transfer to the flour and massage again until fully coated
  6. Fry in the sauté pan until golden, tossing every now and then to make sure the golden brown is even... all of the oil should have been sucked up
  7. Transfer to a flat bowl and serve
