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.

 

 

Recipes

Fava and Wild Mushroom Crostini
Fava beans and wild mushrooms are the perfect combination of field and forest, both delicately sweet and robustly earthy at the same time. This is some of the best that the spring season has to offer, flavors so good and so satisfying that it’s worth a little extra effort.

These elegant crostini are perfect for a casual dinner party. They’re actually very easy to prepare and to make things even simpler, we’ve broken the recipe down into three parts: the favas, the mushrooms and the bread. Each component can be easily prepared in advance and quickly assembled just before serving.

Lobster Mushroom Frittata
Lobster mushrooms are said to have a flavor reminiscent of shellfish, but probably get their name from their bright reddish-orange exterior and creamy white interior. Many purists will insist that the best way to enjoy lobster mushrooms is to sauté them. In reality, they work in nearly any recipe calling for mushrooms. In addition to their color, lobster mushrooms are known for their distinctive crisp texture.

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.

Mushroom Ragout
This is an elegant dish, simple to prepare, that creates an "impression." I especially enjoy knowing about recipes that are easy to make, but taste like a gourmet sensation. This is a delicious dish served with pasta, rice, or just a big loaf of fine quality bread. It also makes a great side dish with red meat.
