  • TotalTime: 7 Mins


  1. 4 king oyster mushrooms
  2. 1/2 tsp. salt
  3. 1/2 tsp. ground black pepper
  4. 1/2 tbsp. cumin
  5. 1 tsp. oil


  1. Toast salt, ground black pepper and cumin in a small pan over slowest fire until aromatic.
  2. Cut king oyster mushroom into 2 to 3 cm thickness tubes. Cut some cross lines on one side.
  3. Brush some oil in a pan and place the king oyster mushrooms in. Use middle fire and fry one side until slightly seared and then turn over the fry the other side. The whole process should be around 3-5 minutes and mushrooms should be cooked slowly.
  4. Transfer to serving plate, spread our spice mix. Place 1/2 tablespoon of chili sauce as another choice of dipping.


  1. Try to choose those middle size king oyster mushrooms and avoid choosing the huge ones.
  2. If you need to wash those mushrooms, wash quickly under running water and avoid soaking mushrooms in water, as they will absorb water quickly and spoil the cooked texture.
  3. Cutting some cross lines on one side can help to fasten the cooking process and make the mushrooms absorb more flavors from the spices.
