King Oyster Mushroom Scallops
Did someone say scallops??
Forget the fish and get all the awesome health benefits of these big 'shrooms instead. The broth infuses in, and the searing at the end adds the bit of crispiness that scallops are knows for. These are fantastic!
2 cups vegetable broth
1 cup coconut aminos
1 teaspoon white miso paste
4 slices fresh ginger root
6-8 garlic cloves, cut in half
1 large piece of nori, shredded by hand
6 oyster mushrooms, cut to 3/4" thickness rounds
Whisk the marinade ingredients together and transfer to a sealable bag.
Slice the mushrooms to about 1 ½” thickness, not using either ends. Score the surface of each cut mushroom cross-wise. Add the mushrooms to the marinade in the bag and allow to chill in fridge for a few hours. I sometimes allow to marinate overnight.
Heat a skillet to a high heat, add the mushrooms – do not crowd them, you’ll have to work in batches – add a little bit of broth. Bring the heat down to a medium-high-heat and as the mushrooms sear and caramelize a bit, you can transfer those to a serving dish. Add broth as necessary to skillet as to not burn. Serve right away or keep warm in oven.
Why mushrooms for health?
This is an incredibly expansive topic and we are still learning so much. Mushrooms were actually pulled from the plant category and placed in their own fungi kingdom category just 50 years ago! Although their category is new, clearly this amazing fungus is ancient and the research on health benefits is vast.
There is research indicating that this fabulous fungus can clear inflammation, reduce the side effects of chemotherapy, lower PSA levels, slow to halt cancer progression, alleviate depression, reeduc the risk of cognitive impairment,
Here is some research from Dr. Michael Greger.
Dr. Rhonda Patrick has some incredible research on her website.
