Ooomami Pickled Shiitake Mushrooms

  • Author: Chef Ryan Wiebe
  • Prep Time: 15 minutes
  • Cook Time: 30 minutes
  • Total Time: 45 minutes


  • 75 g dehydrated shiitake mushrooms 
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup soy
  • 1/3 cup rice wine
  • 1/2 cup Chinkiang vinegar 
  • 1/2 cup water used to rehydrate the mushrooms 
  • 12 Tbsp Spiceology X Girl Carnivore Ooomami blend


  • Rehydrate your shiitake mushrooms by steeping them in water (or if you were making ramen broth this is a great way to not waste your mushrooms). Steep for 15 minutes or until completely soft. 
  • Remove the mushrooms woody stalks and slice the mushroom caps into thin slices. Add to a pot and add the rest of the ingredients, mix and lightly simmer for 30 minutes. 
  • Place your mushrooms into a container with the prickling liquid and store in your fridge for a few months. 
  • These are great in ramen, on a pickle plate or as a snack!
