The Lobster Mushroom is a parasitic mushroom which uses another mushroom as its host; and dramatically increases the flavor of that host. The Lobster Mushroom derives its name from the reddish color of the mushroom.
This mushroom is a great addition to mushroom dishes because of its beautiful color which is rather unique in the edible mushroom world. Lobster Mushrooms have a firm, soft texture, delicate flavor and the slices range from 1 – 3 inches wide. The Lobster absorbs flavors of a dish well while adding eye appeal.
Lobster Mushrooms are a fabulous taste sensation! Delicious when used in vegetable sautés, soups, entrees, and rice dishes.
