GLUTEN-FREE VEGETARIAN WEIGHT LOSS: KING OYSTER MUSHROOM CEVICHE

Pictured at the end of this post is a King Oyster mushroom, which, as you can see, is mostly stem. Here is a recipe which takes advantage of the cut stem's similarity in shape to a scallop and of what some feel is its hint-of the-sea flavor. This faux ceviche is really delicious! 

Clean and slice two mushrooms.
Whisk one teaspoon olive olive with the juice of 2 limes, 1/2 tsp garlic powder or 1 tsp minced garlic, 1 tsp Bay seasoning and 1 tablespoon shredded nori. (Nori is the blackish sea vegetable used in the making of sushi. It is available at Whole Foods and most health stores, as well as, of course, Asian markets.) Place mushrooms in microwave safe bowl with cover. Pour vinaigrette over mushrooms. Cover tightly and microwave until mushrooms are tender, about 3 minutes. Serve hot or cold. This recipe is for two appetizer servings.

looks fantastic. Do you think lemon would work as well? (Not a lime fan, sorry).

sure! lime is traditional, but i can't see why lemon wouldn't be just as good. also, look for nori in a jar, ground. you can just sprinkle it on!

Sounds delicious! I love king oyster mushrooms (and nori, as well). It's too bad they're ridiculously expensive here (40 euros per kilo, yikes).
