Chinese Stir-fried Chicken and Shrimp with Abalone Mushrooms
Chicken, Shrimp and Abalone Mushrooms
Chicken, Shrimp and Abalone Mushroom Stir-Fry
Abalone mushrooms are relatively new to Chinese cooking but just like they quickly incorporated tomatoes and baby corn into their dishes, the Chinese have assimilated abalone mushrooms too.
Abalone mushrooms are a member of the oyster mushroom family and some people seem to think that their appearance and flavor reminds them of abalone. You can judge for yourself. They are available canned at Chinese grocery stores and they may even be sold fresh in some supermarkets.
This recipe calls for chicken breasts, shrimp, snow peas and straw mushrooms in addition to the abalone mushrooms, but you could make it without either the chicken or the shrimp.
If you want to make this recipe completely vegetarian, substitute Chinese dried mushrooms for the chicken and shrimp and add some baby corn for color and crunch. You can even replace the oyster sauce with ground bean sauce.
