Masa Battered Mushrooms with Smallhold

This masa tempura batter is the key to the fried fish taco at New York's Empellón, one of the restaurant's most popular dishes. The batter can be used on just about any host, from fish and shrimp to vegetables and tofu. In this case, we're using some beautiful Blue Oyster mushrooms from our friends at Smallhold.
