Lentinula Edodes (Shiitake)

Among the Asian varieties of mushrooms, one of the most popular is shiitake.
Originally from Japan, it is excellent raw in salads with thyme, pink salt, linseed oil, and soy sauce, while stewed remains a tasty side dish.
A precaution: it is good to use a pan with a lid because they dehydrate easily. We recommend gentle steam cooking.
