Citrus Glazed Mushroom "Scallops" (GF, V)

King oyster mushrooms are an amazing replacement for scallops. You really just replace scallops and follow instructions as usual. A friend of mine has over a dozen scallop recipes on her blog and the new Farmers Market sells king oyster mushrooms, so mushroom scallops might become a weekly staple.

Changes: used mushrooms instead of scallps, replace ginger with allspice (allergy issue), replaced honey with agave nectar,


Mushroom Scallops

1 lb king oyster mushrooms, washed and cut to resemble scallops

S&P, to taste


1/4 cup lime juice

1/4 cup orange juice

2 tbsp lemon juice

1 tsp allspice

2 tbsp agave nectar

1 tsp olive oil

1/4 tsp ground red pepper

1 garlic clove, crushed

1/2 cup chopped green onions

1/4 cup finely chopped fresh cilantro


To prepare glaze, combine lime juice and the next 7 ingredients (lime juice through 1 garlic clove) in a small bowl; stir with a whisk. Add juice mixture to pan. Cook 7 minutes or until glaze becomes shiny and begins to thicken.

Mover to the mushrooms. Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Toss mushrooms with salt and pepper. Add "scallops" to pan; cook 2-3 minutes on each side or until browned. Remove from pan; keep warm.

Drizzle the citrus glaze over the scallops; add green onions and 1/4 cup cilantro. Toss well.

I served with zoodles and cherry tomatoes.
