“Far West Fungi” specializes in mushrooms at our Ferry Building.in San Francisco. The day I visited I snapped pictures of unusual mushrooms especially those that I had never eaten. I bought mushrooms that were called “Yellow Tree Oyster Mushrooms” or “Canary Mushrooms”.
Determined to cook them right away I decided to ask how best to prepare these yellow mushrooms. The salesperson suggested sautéing them quickly or eating them raw would be ideal.. They are organic and cleaning them would not be necessary. I would expect to taste a cucumber/buttery flavor. Well that sounded absolutely delicious! I couldn't wait to experiment.
At home, I decided to create a simple recipe and all I needed were a few key ingredients. That would include chopped garlic, butter and some wonderful organic olive oil. So I reached for my cast iron pan and heated it on a medium flame. I then laced the pan with two tablespoons of olive oil, added my tablespoon of chopped garlic and when they were slightly golden I added my 1/2 lb. of mushrooms. As I gently tossed them, I added a tablespoon of butter ... more flavor. Lastly, a tablespoon of fresh chopped parsley, and a touch of kosher salt and freshly ground pepper.
Now the final moment for tasting. Yum, the mushrooms were tender and absolutely delicious.They did have that buttery/cucumber taste. Now I had another favorite mushroom and I would continue to eat them cooked or raw. Thanks to the folks at “Far West Fungi” who provides all of us with gorgeous mushrooms all year round.
I am very happy lady..it’s always fun to be surprised with something new..
