  1. I used pre-packaged sliced portobello mushrooms and sliced onion rings with chickpea batter. I used your measurements lol. Came out perfectly in a black cast iron skillet, fried. Thank you!

  2. These mushrooms are delicious!!! Thank you so much!! I followed the recipe except I substituted safflower oil for the vegetable oil. I will definitely be making these mushrooms again!!

  3. Thank you so much for this recipe. I’m a New Orleans girl to my heart and I have been looking for a fried seafood substitute since I went vegan and yours is the first I felt confident enough to try. Wow! My non-vegan husband and sons are now hooked. I added a little mustard to the batter for a tang similar to oysters and now oyster mushroom poboys are the preferred option for everyone in my house. Thank you again!

    • That is wonderful!! I am so happy you and your family enjoyed it! This warms my heart thank you so much for the feed back!

  4. I used the airfryer with this recipe and it was so amazing. It was brown and crispy – I even double battered it! Yum yum yum, thank you for sharing this recipe! I am so happy it’s gluten-free as well!!

    • Hi! I was about to ask if this recipe was compatible with an air fryer but then saw your comment. Did you alter the recipe besides double coating them? Did you spray a little bit of oil on them before putting them in the air fryer? Thanks in advance!

  5. My son picked some wild oyster mushroom & we just used your recipe to cook some up. THEY WERE FABULOUS!!! I just used regular flour & left out the kelp seasoning. I will definatly use your recipe for other veggies I fry & may try it on fish (blue gill) too!

  6. I tried it and L O V E D it!!! Well I changed it a tad and added lemon pepper and no liquid smoke!

  7. It’s ok to splurge once in awhile and this looks like the recipe to splurge with!! Hey at least they aren’t THAT high in fat! What a fun and unique recipe….can’t wait to give this one a go!!

  8. I can’t tell you how much I love this recipe. I love fried oyster mushrooms. I don’t usually deep fry things, but to eat this delicious fried oyster mushrooms, I’d be happy to do it just so I can taste your recipe!!

    • It really is the only thing I deep fry! I will be trying this in an air fryer soon to see if that works then I can have them more often lol

  9. Oh that crispy coating outside, I can only imagine how delicious these mushrooms taste! My parents used to make fried oyster mushrooms all the time, but I’ve not had any for ages! Thanks for reminding me!

  10. I don’t do fried foods often either but they really are a treat every now and then! And I love the natural umami of mushrooms and the crispy texture of the batter on these!

    • They are abundant in Asian stores. I been buying them for years now that the secret is out I just hope they don’t run out haha

  11. This sounds like something I would never think of trying but now I’m completely intrigued! Love that you made some for the game…hello Super Bowl snack!
