Crispy Arbosano Mushroom Tacos

We love Taco Tuesday, and these Crispy Arbosano Mushroom Tacos elevated our game. We achieved the mouth-watering balance of salty, peppery, and a hint of floral on these tacos using our Il Fusti Arbosano Olive Oil. Try this crispy treat for your Taco Tuesday! 


For the Pico De Gallo

  • 1 large beefsteak tomato, cored and diced into ¼-inch pieces
  • 1 large ripe Haas avocado, pitted, peeled, and diced into ¼-inch pieces
  • 2 jalapeños stemmed and finely chopped (seeded if desired)
  • ½ cup cilantro leaves, finely chopped
  • 3 tablespoons fresh lime juice (from 1 to 2 limes)
  • Coarse kosher salt

For the Mushroom Tacos

  • 18 ounces oyster mushrooms (from 2 to 3 medium clusters)
  • ⅓ cup Il Fusti Arbosano Olive Oil
  • ¼ teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1½ teaspoons coarse kosher salt
  • Black pepper
  • 12 corn tortillas


Step 1
Make the pico de gallo: Combine the tomato, avocado, jalapeños, cilantro, and lime juice in a bowl and season with salt. Gently fold them together. Set aside to allow flavors to marry while the mushrooms cook.

Step 2
Make the tacos: Tear the oyster mushrooms into bite-size pieces, leaving some mushroom tops whole. To make sure the mushrooms become crisp, cook in two batches: Heat a large cast iron or another heavy skillet over medium-high and coat with half of the  Il Fusti Arbosano Olive Oil. Once the oil is hot, add half of the mushrooms in a single layer without crowding the skillet. Cook, stirring every few minutes, until deep golden brown and crisp, 10 to 15 minutes. Transfer to a plate, then repeat with the remaining  Il Fusti Arbosano Olive Oil and mushrooms. Return the first batch to the skillet, add the cumin and salt, and season with pepper. Stir well, then remove from the heat.

Step 3
While the mushrooms are cooking, warm the tortillas on a comal or heavy skillet over medium-high heat until soft and pliable. Wrap them in a dish towel to keep them warm until ready to serve. Divide the mushrooms and pico de gallo among the warm tortillas. Serve immediately.
