Oyster mushroom

With a subtle flavour and chewy texture, oyster mushrooms can be grey, yellow or pink in colour. They are so-called because of their distinctive fan-like shape.

How to Use

Oyster mushrooms make a tasty addition to mixed mushroom stir-fries, omelettes or pasta sauces.

How to Prepare

All mushrooms should be washed before used and dried with kitchen towel. Then trim the end of the stems. Oyster mushrooms can be cooked whole or cut into strips.

How to Cook

Oyster mushrooms can be fried or grilled. To fry, heat a little butter in a frying pan and cook over a high heat for 4-5 minutes. To grill, preheat the grill to high, brush the mushrooms with olive oil and cook for 5-10 minutes. They can also be stir-fried, roasted or poached in the microwave.

How to Store

Keep in a paper bag in the fridge for up to 3 days. Do not store them in a plastic bag because they will sweat and quickly spoil.
