LION’S MANE Mushroom Crab Cakes

LION’S MANE Mushroom Crab Cakes

Very seafood like, but as you tear into the lion's main mushroom you start to see a uncanny resemblance!

    This is an excellent recipe. It also works well with oyster mushrooms. In my opinion, the oyster mushrooms have a more “crab-like” taste but the lion’s mane has a more crab like look and texture. I made variations of this recipe including a retro version that includes pimentos and celery. Saucestache is an awesome cook and has great recipes!
