Seaweed 'Bacon' and Mock King Oyster Mushroom 'Scallops'

We have been indulging in King Oyster Mushroom 'Scallops', I know how decadent! And here is the handsome proof.

The King Oyster Mushroom 'Scallops' here are served on a bed of green pea puree, I know how original - not, and Sea Bacon, now that part is original.  

I was actually going to make rice paper 'bacon', but wanted to try the Sea Bacon which are dried strips of dulse. I've had a packet of Sea Bacon in my kitchen cupboard for a little while.  I had forgotten that I had it until I came across it looking for something else. I fried it in a little oil for a few seconds to crisp up. 
To the uninitiated, the Sea Bacon looks like thinly sliced potato peel, roasted and then strewn across the plate, but it really is seaweed. And no points for presentation, presentation skills are not my forte. 
The King Oyster Mushroom Scallops were absolutely amazing, the sea bacon was good too, crispy but very salty.  You would not want loads of it here.  I think the amount I served on the plate here was plenty. For the green pea puree I used frozen peas.
I am sharing this with The Veg Hog who is hosting #EatYourGreens this month.  There is plenty of time to join in, so please do.   

Thick Creamy Pea Puree
250g cooked green peas
100ml vegetable stock
A good handful of fresh mint leaves
3-4 tablespoon of olive oil
Salt and pepper to taste

Blend all ingredients in a food processor until smooth.

Warm it through in a pan before serving.

  1. top marks for an innovative vegan dish - and the pea puree makes it look really beautiful

    1. Thanks you Johanna. Its pea and scallop veganized.

  2. This dish again looks amazing! I also thought first that those are potato peels, but nice usage of the sea bacon. I have seen it in the shops, but didn't buy it yet. This dish is very inspiring though. Thank you for sharing this beauty with Eat Your Greens! Have a nice Sunday!

    1. Thank you. Sea bacon is expensive, but a little goes a long way.

  3. This is a gorgeous plate!
    The colour of the mushy peas is vibrant!

  4. I've been wanting to try some oyster mushroom scallops...yours look delicious...
    ~Have a lovely day!

    1. I hope you get to make them soon, I would have thought you had made them though with all the veganizing you have been doing.

  5. I've seen that sea bacon in the shops a few times and wondered if it was good - thank you for sating my curiosity on the subject!
