Fried Oyster Mushrooms

Recipe from: ljeaves
Servings: 4

Well, here's a recipe that includes both fungus and algae!

4 ounces oyster mushrooms, rinsed
1 ½ cup safflower oil for frying
fresh lime, for garnish

For the Flour Mix:
1 teaspoon nori flakes, crushed
½ teaspoon garlic powder
¼ cup unbleached flour
1 pinch each salt and pepper

For the Water Mix:
½ teaspoon nori flakes
¼ teaspoon garlic powder
½ cup water

For the Bread Crumb Mix:
2 cups fresh bread crumbs
4 teaspoons nori flakes
½ teaspoon garlic powder

Thoroughly mix ingredients for each of the three mixes.

Heat oil to 350°F in a wok.

Dredge mushrooms in flour mix and shake off excess. Dip mushrooms into water mix and shake off excess. Dredge mushrooms in crumb mix. Fry mushrooms four to five at a time for about 1½ minutes, being careful that the breading doesn't get beyond golden. Drain mushrooms on a towel covered plate. Allow a minute between batches for oil to re-heat.

Mushrooms may be kept warm in a 250°F oven. Serve garnished with fresh lime chunks.
