Recipe Notes

  1. Instead of oyster mushrooms you can also use king oyster mushrooms.
  2. To make this mushroom shrimp gluten free use gluten free breadcrumbs and either gluten free all purpose flour or almond flour.
  3. Instead of coconut milk you can use another dairy free milk.
  4. Depending on how large or small you cut your mushrooms, you may have to alter the cooking times slightly (the larger they are the more time they will need to cook).
