Asian Fusion Marinated Lion's Mane Recipe
We had the best ramen soup the other day. While it was really good, all my husband could talk about was the amazingly flavorful tofu. We tried to duplicate this treat at home. We found a delicious recipe on the Noracooks website. Also, per normal, we didn’t have some of the things that were listed in the ingredients and tried to make it with substitutions. After a few tweaks we found a combination that was phenomenal. Since we have family members who can’t eat tofu, I substituted Lion’s Mane. I can’t even begin to tell you how tasty it is. Everyone thought it was delicious and loved the soft center and the crispy outside. I recommend doubling the recipe as these are truly snack worthing and they tend to disappear off the plate every time someone walks by. They even taste good cold.
Lion’s Mane is native species of mushroom in many countries as well as America. It is well known for its medicinal benefits and many people talk about how it helps their thinking. While not a strong flavor, some people think it tastes faintly of seafood. I personally don’t taste it but everyone is different. It does have crab or lobster like texture. It is often used to make crabcakes. Some people use it to make steak. I love how it takes on the flavors of the sauce that it is in.
This Asian fusion Lion’s Mane is perfect for ramen noodles, stir-fry, sandwiches, or as a tasty snack. They only need to marinate for 15 minutes, but taste even better if you do it for at least 30 minutes. They are also perfect to make ahead and only take 5-10 minutes to fry up.
