King oyster mushrooms are very versatile when it comes to meatless recipes. The texture is firm and chewy, almost meat-like so you can fry or steam or braise it to mimic meat in recipes.
I find that the texture comes really close to scallops when you cut it into round pieces. And the top is just shaped perfectly like an abalone when cut. In this recipe video, I make my butter garlic scallops and abalone with broccoli.
- Use low heat when frying the garlic so it does not burn quickly
- Adding olive oil before butter prevents the butter from burning
