What Do Wild Lobster Mushrooms Taste Like?

Lobster mushroom is meaty and has a dense texture with a nutty, sweet smell reminiscent of steamed lobster. The lobster mushroom is found in the autumn in New England and on the West Coast, usually from late summer through October. Lobster mushrooms are highly variable in flavor. Fresh specimens with completely white flesh on the interior are the best tasting.

How Do I Cook Lobster Mushrooms?

When cooking lobster mushrooms, simple is best. This dense mushroom will taste best when pan-fried or sauteed (as in this vegan taco recipe!)

Keep in mind that the orange-red color will leach out as you cook the lobster mushrooms cooks, lending a bright color to whatever ingredients you cook it with. We like to chop the lobster mushrooms and cook it just right.

Be sure not not to overcook! Lobster mushrooms can lose its delicate flavor when overcooked, so it’s best to keep an eye on it and remove from heat when done.

    I’ve only ever seen the dried lobster mushrooms. where can you buy fresh? Either way, this looks delicious!

    1. Hey Pamela! Lobster Mushrooms are a bit tricky to find, but you can buy them online (like from D’Artagnan). Keep in mind that they are seasonal, so even these online retailers typically only sell them at certain times of the year. Hope this helps!
