4king oyster mushrooms
2tspold bay seasoningdivided
1/2cuppanko bread crumbs
Slice the stem of each mushroom into slices about 1/4" thick. Optionally you can also use a small circle cut out to remove a section in the middle of each for that classic calamari ring look.
To a medium bowl add your flour and water and mix until all the lumps are gone. Add 1 tsp old bay, 1 tsp dried parsley, onion powder, garlic powder, black pepper, lemon juice, soy sauce and nori shreds. Mix until all incorporated.
Add your mushroom slices to your marinade and toss until all coated. Marinade for about two hours in the fridge.
Once the two hours have passed you want to add your panko to a separate bowl along with 1 tbsp of old bay and 1 tbsp dried parsley.
Coat each of your mushrooms in panko and add then to your air fryer. Be sure onyl put them in a single layer and, if using the acti-fry, be sure to remove the rotating paddle.
Air fry for 5 minutes then flip and cook for 5 minutes more. Add the paddle back in a cook for another 5-8 minutes.
