Cajun Fried Mushrooms

I was looking for a little different (and spicier) version of fried mushrooms than you usually get when you order them at your local bar, and boy, I found it. I recently made some beer battered mushrooms, and they were absolutely outstanding. The nice light batter made the mushrooms feel light and airy. The batter on these Cajun fried mushrooms isn’t quite as light, but it has a fantastic (corn meal) crunch to it. And a really nice spicy kick.

The mustardy dipping sauce compliments these mushrooms perfectly, and it also has a bit of kick to it because, well, you need a kick and more kick is better.

Also try my beer-battered fried mushrooms. They’re yummy too!
