White Jade Mushroom

I received a Cafe de Flore Paris (I miss you, someday, I'll be back!) postcard from my best friend Don, who resides in Shanghai.  We've spent many summers in Shanghai and I've come to love the place because of the food, the art, and the crazy fun people in it.  And so, I found it ironic that I came across these in the supermarket...
 ...White Jade Mushroom.  Quickly wash in running water and remove the edible bits by slicing or plucking it by hand.
Saute in a hot pan with vegetable oil and season with salt and white pepper.  Remove from the pan and plate it along with it's juices.  Garnish with fresh coriander leaves.  Serve hot.
