The Lobster Mushroom (Hypomyces Lactifluorum) 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 add a beautiful touch of color to dishes. They are great in baked dishes or sautéed and served with meat or tofu. Use in place of any Mushroom, Lobster are very versatile.
