Crispy Enoki Mushrooms

by MJ

These are so crunchy and delicious as an appetizer or snack. Cornstarch is added for a crispier texture but you can make these with just flour if you don’t have cornstarch.

Depending on the amount of enoki mushrooms frying use 1:1 ratio of flour to water. You can also substitute with beer for beer batter.

  • 1 bunch Enoki Mushrooms
  • 3/4 cup flour
  • 1/4 cup corn starch
  • salt and pepper and any other seasonings
  • 1 cup water
  • Optional: Seaweed
  • Oil for frying
  • Dipping Sauce: mayo and sriracha or chili sauce.


Cut off the bottom part of the mushrooms. Rinse and pat dry to remove moisture. Separate mushrooms into individual bunches. 

Batter: In a bowl, add flour, cornstarch, salt, pepper and water and mix together.  If batter is too thick, stir in 1-2 Tablespoons of water. 

Optional: cut seaweed into strips.  Roll individual bunches, adding some batter to seal. 

Heat about 1 inch of oil  in a skillet or pot to 350F degrees. 

If using seaweed - dip the stem into the batter first, then dip mushrooms into the batter, up to the seaweed. Shake off excess batter. 

If not using seaweed, dip mushroom bunches in the batter and shake off excess batter.

Fry in batches until golden brown and place on a plate lined with paper towel to absorb grease. Serve with sauce or your favorite condiment.


They are best when served hot right after frying.
