King Oyster Mushrooms

KING OYSTER MUSHROOMS

Look out for these little beauties this weekend at your local Farmers’ Market.  I bought some today at Leaf Stores in Elwood, positively delicious they were too!  Do not be put off by the $45/kg price tag; 70 - 100g / per person is plenty.

One of the things that I emphasise in my Kitchen Confidence 101 Cooking Course is the importance of sourcing the best ingredients.  There is no doubt that when you use premium, organically grown ingredients that are ripe and in season - there is very little that you have to do to make an extraordinary tasting dish that tastes of what it is.

This recipe can be on the table in less than 5 minutes, using a minimum of ingredients and just one pan.
