If you are as much a fan of the intense flavors of sweet and sour Asian dishes as I am then you’ll love these mushrooms. They are sweet, sour, ginger-y, and slightly spicy and make a fantastic appetizer.

Here’s how it works: you marinate oyster, beech and shiitake mushrooms (along with a smidgeon of sliced chili pepper) in a mix of rice vinegar, soy sauce, honey and ginger and then roast them until they are nicely tender. Before serving be sure to sprinkle a bit of fresh green onion on to contrast the intense sweet and sour flavors.

    What a fun idea for a dish, Almost like Suan la tang- hot and sour soup with rice vinegar instead of Chinese black vinegar. Love the look you achieved with your artificial lighting. Just stunning! Wishing you a super weekend!

  2. Ruby says:

    I am not a huge mushroom fan but I think I would definitely be converted with this dish. Beautiful photos and gorgeous recipe. Love your site. x

    Great shot, I love your photography Nicole! Fantastic asian flavours, perfect with earthiness of the mushrooms.
    p.s I really want to invest in a good artificial light setup (preferably not too expensive). It would need to be available in the UK. I was going to ask you, have you ever used a Lowel Ego Light? Do you know if they are any good?

    What a interesting recipe! Love mushrooms but it never occurred to me to use such a Asian style flavor combination with them. Really like the decorations on the top!
