I'd like to introduce you to my new love, King Oyster Mushroom.
He is my new favorite mushroom. Meaty, dense, firm, and good in butter! Yum. I purchased King Oyster at Ranch for about $2. One package was a meal in itself! It would make a good vegan substitute for scallops because of it's size and denseness. Don't get me wrong--it doesn't taste like seafood at all! It has a mild, flavor that is reminiscent of MATSUTAKE. Need I really say more? Not a mushroom to be wasted on spaghetti, if you get my drift...truly a King.
