Fried Enoki Mushroom

Joined Dec 3, 2017
Hi all, i facing this issue when i deep frying Enoki mushroom. When the mushroom turn golden brown, i drain off the oil and let it cool down before putting into a container. Couple of hour later , i realise the container is full of oil. Is there any method to force out the extra oil fully as i intend to keep the mushroom for 1-2 week and i do not want the container to look oily.

What are you trying to achieve when you fry the mushroom? Are you looking just for a crispy mushroom?

You might try frying them first and then sticking them in a low oven for a few hours to dehydrate...or use a dehydrator. You might try resting the mushrooms on a paper towel for a couple hours after too to absorb the outgoing oil.

What are the mushrooms like when you take them out of the fryer? What temp are you using to fry?

Mushrooms are sponges. But if you continue cooking them a little longer they'll eventually give back the oil they've absorbed.
