How To Make Southern Style Fried Mushrooms


2 cups vegetable oil for frying
1/4 cup red cooking wine
2 teaspoons water
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon chopped fresh parsley
3/4 teaspoon minced garlic
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
ground black pepper to taste
10 button mushrooms
2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese


Heat oil in a deep-fryer or large saucepan to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

Whisk the wine, water, flour, parsley, garlic, salt, and pepper together in a bowl until well combined and no lumps are visible. Dip each mushroom individually into the mixture to coat. Carefully put the coated mushrooms into the hot oil, keeping the mushrooms from touching and sticking together while cooking. Cook until golden brown, 5 to 6 minutes. Remove from oil and drain on a plate lined with paper towels. Sprinkle with the Parmesan cheese to serve.
