Description 

 

Lobster mushrooms (Hypomyces lactifluorum) are found in woods, where its favorite host, the short-stemmed russula grows; widespread, especially common under conifers in the Pacific Northwest.

 

Lobster mushrooms are said to have a seafood-like flavor, but probably really get their name from their bright orange-red exterior and creamy white interior.

Please take note!  While lobster mushrooms are not as attractive as other mushrooms, their rough, mottled exterior and pungent smell belie their wonderful flavor. Lobster mushrooms frequently are covered with white spores, even after they've been picked, but don't worry, it's not mold - they are supposed to look like that! Their aroma can be quite strong, but after cooking, the true, rich flavor of lobster mushrooms emerges. They do best sauteed. and retain their fimness. They make an excellent addition to soups, stews and terrines.

Bacon-Wrapped Tenderloin with Mushroom Risotto
Remember to allow at least 40 to 50 minutes for the risotto to cook. Charlie Trotter suggests partially cooking the risotto earlier in the day, using only three-quarters of the mushroom stock. Refrigerate it in the pan, then just prior to serving, return the pan to the heat. Add the remaining mushroom stock in ¼ cup additions and continue with the recipe as directed. This recipe is from Charlie Trotter's book "Charlie Trotter Cooks at Home" published by the Ten Speed Press.
