King Oyster Mushroom Aguachile

Aguachile is traditionally made with shrimp, but since 2023 is going to be all about mushrooms, we decided to try it out. King oyster mushrooms have a meaty texture and pair well with the herby, citrusy marinade.

Estimated values based on one serving size.


  1. Make the aguachile: On a mandoline, thinly slice the mushroom stems crosswise into rounds (reserve the mushroom caps for another use). Transfer to a bowl or deep container. Thinly slice the red onion on the mandoline and add to the bowl with the mushrooms.
  2. In a blender, combine the cilantro, cucumber, serrano, jalapeño, garlic, lime juice, vinegar, and salt and blend on high speed until smooth, about 30 seconds.
  3. Pour the marinade over the mushrooms and onion and stir to coat completely. Let sit for 5–10 minutes.
  4. While the mushrooms are marinating, prepare the garnishes: using a mandoline, thinly slice the cucumber into rounds. Thinly slice the red onion.
  5. To serve, arrange the sliced cucumber on a serving plate. Spoon the marinated mushrooms and onion on top, along with some of the marinade. Garnish with the thinly sliced red onion, cilantro, and black pepper. Serve immediately.
  6. Enjoy!
