Mushrooms 2 ways


  • Gently mix together the capers, gherkins, mayonnaise, sour cream, lime juice and coriander. Taste for seasoning and set aside.
  • Peel the large mushrooms, remove the stalks and then cut into thick even slices.
  • Place flour in one bowl, mix together the eggs and milk in another, and toss the breadcrumbs with 2-3 tbsp grated parmesan in a third bowl.
  • Then flour the mushrooms, toss in egg wash and coat well in breadcrumbs.
  • Heat a layer of oil in a large heavy-bottomed, non-stick pan and gently fry the mushrooms until golden, being careful not to overcrowd the pan. Drain well on kitchen paper towels.
  • At the same time, place the fennel on a large serving plate and top with a squeeze of lemon juice and the finely sliced raw mushrooms. Then top with another squeeze of lemon juice, seasonings, a little oil, the truffle oil, 1-2 tbsp grated parmesan and the fennel sprigs.
  • Arrange the fried mushrooms on another plate and serve with the lime and coriander tartare in a small bowl on the side.
