How To Prepare Crispy Shiitake Salad

🍄 First, arrange the shiitake on lined sheet pans without overcrowding. Place in the oven at 170F with the door slightly propped open to dehydrate. It will be about 1.5 – 2 hours.

🧂 Secondly, preheat the oil to about 350F or until your wooden spoon bubbles. Then, fry the shiitake in batches until golden. Hit them with salt and pepper.

🧅 Mix together the shallot, Tamari, miso, rice vinegar, sesame oil, mayo, dijon, pepper and olive oil. Shake well.

🌿 Lastly, gently massage into the greens, add the sesame seeds and serve with the mushrooms piled high!

Substitutions and Variations

  1. You can use Crimini mushrooms instead of shiitake.
  2. You can use any greens of your choice instead of baby spinach and kale.

Chef Nadia’s Tip

To get the mushrooms as crispy as possible, you have to slice as thin as you can and dehydrate in the oven!
