Shiitake Tempura Munchies

19 07 2014

I picked these up at Kinokuniya the other day.

Labeled "Tempura Shiitake Snack".

Labeled “Tempura Shiitake Snack”.

Lots of garlicky smell though we never use garlic in tempura.

Heavily garlic flavored though in real tempura, we never use garlic.

They turned out to be yum.  I think shiitakes are better when big and fat and these looked quite big even after being fried and dried.  Never imagined a crunchy shiitake but it works!
