1 bouquet Hot Pink Oyster Mushrooms
Dash Sesame oil
2 Spring onions sliced into thin cross-sections
1 Clove Fresh ginger finely sliced
1 Garlic Clove finely sliced
1 Handful parsley (or coriander) roughly chopped
Squeeze lemon juice
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
To prepare the mushrooms, firstly remove the firmer and whiter part of the stem. Keep the small ones whole, but you may need to tear any larger ones in half.
In a mixing bowl, place you garlic, ginger and mushrooms. Then add a generous dash of sesame oil. Mix all the ingredients together so that the mushrooms have a light coating of oil.
Heat your frying pan and then throw in the pink mushrooms mix; keep this moving around the pan. You’ll notice they change colour quickly as they cook, losing their pinkness and turning a shade of orange.
After 2-3 minutes the mushrooms should almost be cooked. Add in the spring onions and herbs. Season to taste and add a squeeze of lemon juice.
Give all your ingredients a final mix to ensure that they heat through and you’re ready to serve. If accompanying a stir fry, you can also add soy sauce to taste.
