Lobster mushrooms get their name from their orange outer skin and
their unique seafood-esque flavor. They have a crisp texture, bright
white inner flesh, and a spicy-briny aroma. Wild lobster mushrooms grow
in abundance in the mountains of the Pacific Northwest, typically
between August and November.
Dried lobster mushrooms are an affordable way to enjoy these wild
mushrooms year round. They’re easy to reconstitute with hot water for
use in recipes calling for fresh oyster mushrooms, or they can be added
to simmering soups, stews and sauces while still dry.
mushrooms are a great value. It takes about 5 pounds of fresh mushrooms
to create 8 ounces of dried mushrooms. In addition, they can be shipped
much more affordably.
Frozen lobster mushrooms and fresh lobster mushrooms (when in season) are also available.
Store dried lobster mushrooms in an air-tight container or zip top bag in a cool, dry, dark cupboard.
Shelf Life: Dried mushrooms will retain their flavor for at least a year, but likely far longer.
Lobster mushrooms pair well with both seafood
and eggs. They can be added to soups, cooked and blended into sauces, or simply sautéed and use as a side dish, garnish, topping, stuffing or other element for a seafood dish.
Though the above suggestions play to their flavor strengths, they can also be used similarly to other wild mushrooms in almost any dish, so long as they are cooked.
