Fried Enoki Mushroom

Enoki mushrooms are one of my favorite varieties to work with in the kitchen. Their delicate and elegant appearance adds a touch of sophistication to any dish, especially when they are fried to perfection. In this article, I will share with you my personal recipe for creating crispy and flavorful fried enoki mushrooms that will leave your taste buds craving for more.


  • 1 pound of fresh enoki mushrooms
  • 1 cup of all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon of garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon of paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon of salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon of black pepper
  • 2 eggs
  • Vegetable oil for frying


  1. To start, carefully separate the enoki mushrooms into small bunches. Trim off the root ends and discard any discolored parts.
  2. In a shallow dish, mix the all-purpose flour, garlic powder, paprika, salt, and black pepper.
  3. In another dish, beat the eggs until well combined.
  4. Heat vegetable oil in a frying pan over medium heat.
  5. Dip the mushroom bunches into the beaten eggs, allowing any excess to drip off, then coat them in the seasoned flour mixture.
  6. Once the oil is hot, carefully place the coated mushroom bunches into the pan and fry until golden brown and crispy, about 2-3 minutes per side.
  7. Remove the fried enoki mushrooms from the oil and place them on a paper towel-lined plate to drain any excess oil.
