Meanwhile, in a large, high sided pot bring approximately 2"-3" of oil to a temperature of 375°
*Note - If you add the mushrooms all in at once to the hot oil they'll stick together, which is why it's best to add them individually.
Prepare the sauce by whisking all the ingredients together in a small bowl.
Tip; I recommend using a thermometer to bring the oil up to temperature. However, if you submerge the handle of a wooden spoon into the hot oil and small bubbles immediately form and dance to the surface (much like champagne bubbles), you're oil is hot enough and ready to fry.
Tip; Frying oil can be recycled up to 4 times before it needs to be discarded. To reuse the oil, cool it completely, and then carefully funnel it into a covered container for another use.
NEVER leave hot oil unattended and NEVER allow children close to the oil while cooking.
NEVER fill a pot more than halfway with oil for frying.
NEVER add a lid to a pot while bring the oil to frying temperature.
