Vegan Scallops with Coastal Wild Herbs is another of my favourites. This dish reminds me of foraging for Alexanders, Samphire, Rock Sapphire and Sea Purslane with friends. These wild coastal herbs don’t get enough credit but they really enhance my repertoire of recipe offerings. I use King Oyster Mushrooms as my substitute for this lovely shellfish.  The seaweed provides the umami flavour.

Ingredients

  • 250g King Oyster Mushrooms
  • 150ml white wine
  • 300ml vegetable stock
  • 3tbs olive oil
  • ½tsp Alexanders (seeds)
  • ½tsp Rock Samphire (seeds)
  • 1tbs tapioca flour
  • Small bunch of Sea Purslane
  • Small bunch of Samphire
  • 1tbs seaweed (I use Egg Wrack, ground)

Instructions

  1. Cut the King Oyster Mushrooms in strips. Take each strip and then criss-cross with a knife only just beneath the surface. Pan fry the mushrooms until golden on both sides. Reserve liquid.
  2. Place the Mushrooms on a warm plate or alternatively in a pre-heated oven to keep warm.
  3. Add both the wine and vegetable stock and Alexanders and Rock Samphire to the reserved liquid. Cook under a medium heat and reduce the liquid.
  4. Add in the tapioca flour to thicken the sauce. Toss in the Sea Purslane for a couple of minutes. Switch off the heat and add the Samphire and seaweed.
  5. Serve with rice or potatoes.
