10 mushrooms


  • 2 cups vegetable oil for frying

  • ½ cup all-purpose flour

  • ¼ cup red cooking wine

  • 2 teaspoons water

  • 1 teaspoon chopped fresh parsley

  • ¾ teaspoon minced garlic

  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt

  • ground black pepper to taste

  • 10 medium button mushrooms

  • 2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese


  1. Heat oil in a deep-fryer or large saucepan to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

  2. Whisk flour, wine, water, parsley, garlic, salt, and pepper together in a bowl until well combined and no lumps remain. Dip mushrooms, one at a time, into batter to coat.

  3. Carefully place coated mushrooms into hot oil, making sure they don't touch or stick together while cooking; fry until golden brown, 5 to 6 minutes. Drain on a paper towel-lined plate lined. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese to serve.
