Crispy, fried wild oyster mushrooms are perfect as a side dish. Oyster mushrooms can be found in winter, and are great all-around mushrooms. Follow the recipe below and make a delicious batter and dip your foraged wild oyster mushrooms in it. Heat up frying oil and make crispy, golden brown oyster mushrooms, and season with salt. If there is batter left, you can use it to deep fry vegetables, fish, or seafood.
