Dehydrated Lobster Mushrooms
The name of this mushroom is derived from its appearance—a bright red shell on the outside and white inside. Lobster mushrooms have a firm, slightly crunchy texture and their delicate flavor is seafood-like. They are great in pates, soups, stews, stir fries or omelets. When reconstituted, they are also great for sautéing.
Lobsters mushrooms are versatile and absorb the flavor of the dishes they are used in, making them easily interchangeable for other mushrooms. To use as fresh, reconstitute by simmering in water for 15-20 minutes then drain or reserve liquid for further use. Dried mushrooms keep much longer than fresh, and because of their price tag, dried is an economical choice for your kitchen.
