  • 16 oz pack of Livermush
  • 2 tsp oil optional


  • Cut Livermush into slices, about ¼ inch thick.


  • Heat oil in a large skillet over medium high heat. Place the Livermush in a skillet in a single layer and brown the Livermush, about 4-5 minutes on each side, until the outside is crispy.

Air Fryer

  • Preheat the air fryer to 370 degrees Fahrenheit. Place Livermush slices in an air fryer basket and cook for 12-15 minute, until the outside is crispy.


  • Livermush is fully cooked and just needs to be crisped up. You can use either the stovetop or air fryer to cook it.
  • I tend to only add oil if I am frying the Livermush on the stovetop. I do not use oil if I am using the air fryer. You can lightly spray the Livermush in the air fryer if you like.
