Portobello mushroom fries recipe

The Beach Hut portabello mushroom fries have gained a cult following since they first appeared on The Living Space menu. Perfect for dunking with homemade aioli. Find the recipe below.

Mushroom fries being shared


Serves two

  • 400g Portobello mushrooms
  • 100g flour
  • 20g finely chopped sage
  • 2 whole eggs
  • 100g breadcrumbs (you can make your own from leftover stale bread, but shop-bought panko breadcrumbs work well too)
  • Parmesan cheese
  • A bottle of vegetable oil


  1. Slice the mushrooms into 1-inch chips.
  2. Blend the flour and sage together in a bowl.
  3. Coat the mushrooms with the blended flour first, then the egg and finally the breadcrumbs.
  4. Deep fry in hot vegetable oil for 1-2 minutes oil until golden brown. Remove with a slotted spoon and allow to drain on a paper towel to remove any excess oil.
  5. Season with salt and freshly grated parmesan while hot.

Aioli Ingredients

Serves two

  • 3 garlic cloves
  • Salt
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 150ml olive oil
  • Juice of ½ a lemon


1. Finely chop, grate or press the three garlic cloves.
2. Crush the garlic on a chopping board using the flat of your knife. Pound together with the salt using a pestle and mortar – if you have one it makes things a little easier – to make an even paste.
3. Stir in the egg yolk and add the olive oil slowly at first, then increase it to a thin stream and stir constantly until a thick paste is formed (use a hand whisk to stir in the oil if you don’t have a pestle and mortar).
4. Add the lemon juice and season to taste.

Top tip! They’re hard to resist, but do allow the fires to cool off a little before eating them – they can get piping hot. Dunk away!
