I am SO excited to be sharing this recipe for Crispy Black Pepper Oyster Mushrooms with Spicy BBQ Ketchup. Why? Because this is my new favourite app EVER. I have been wanting to make crispy oyster mushrooms ever since I had them at our local pub. Can you believe it?! An Irish pub had crispy curry-spied fried oyster mushrooms on the menu. I was so excited! And they were craaaazy good.
So, naturally, I had to make my own. I wasn’t feeling curry so I decided to stick with good ol black pepper. I paired them with a spicy BBQ ketchup which is so easy to make. Its literally ketchup, hot sauce and bbq sauce! But the result is a tangy, sweet and smoky, spicy sauce that is perfect for dipping.
I originally thought I would try to air fry these mushrooms, but I was worried they would dry out given how thin they are once you shred them. Therefore, I went with pan frying. The result is crispy, golden, perfectly done mushrooms that will keep you coming back for more!
