Cook time: 10 minutes
Serves: 2 people
Lightly fried Fable meaty mushrooms are served with a punchy spiced salt seasoning and a tangy lemon chive dipping sauce for a truly tasty textural treat.


Spiced salt:

  • 5g green cardamon pods 
  • 1 cinnamon stick 
  • 5g coriander seeds 
  • 1 whole star anise 
  • 2g whole cloves
  • 30g grapeseed oil 
  • 10g sea salt flakes 

Crispy Fable:

  • Grapeseed oil 
  • 120g Fable 

Lemon chive mayonnaise:

  • 100g mayonnaise (sub vegan, if preferred) 
  • 10g chives
  • 1 tsp lemon juice 


  1. For the spiced salt, place all the ingredients (apart from the sea salt flakes) to a blender or spice grinder and blitz to a fine crumb. Pass the mixture through a fine mesh sieve. Stir the sea salt flakes in the fine powder and mix well to combine.
  2. For the crispy Fable, heat the oil in a pan and lightly fry the Fable until crispy and golden on all sides. Remove and place onto a plate or tray lined with kitchen paper to drain.
  3. For the lemon chive mayonnaise, simply place the mayonnaise into a bowl. Finely chop the chives and stir into the mayonnaise along with the lemon juice.
  4. Serve the crispy Fable with the spiced salt and lemon chive mayonnaise.

You may not use all the spiced salt, but it will store well in a sealed container in your pantry.
