I was in a vegan restaraunt in Cali (a first for me) and I ordered this fabulous mushroom mock calamari. Seriously, it was tiny slices of heaven.<br><br><br><br>
I need some help recreating this in my little town with no veggie restaraunts. I've googled it and vegweb-ed it and can't find anything. Maybe you all can help...<br><br><br><br>
It was little slices of musrooms that had a crust to them kinda fried kinda pan seared maybe? I haven't had calamari in years and probably only twice in my whole life but it had that seafood taste that I guess would come from seaweed or some spice that I can't think of the name right now. The were just perfect and delicious.<br><br><br><br>
Any ideas? TIA <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">

You mean like calamari fritti? I only tried a single bite of that once and decided it felt like battered, fried worms. My biases aside, I'd imagine the batter would be similar to what you'd use on onion rings.<br><br><br><br>
I punched vegan onion rings recipe into google and got <a href="http://www.podsumer.com/vegancookingschool/archives/2006/01/beer_battered_o_1.html" target="_blank">this</a> as my first search result, as well as a few more <a href="http://allrecipes.com/recipe/fried-onion-rings/detail.aspx" target="_blank">similar one</a>s. I'd try that and adjust the seasoning to include something seaweedy and possibly other things you might find in an actual calamari recipe.
