3. Sprinkle about 1-2 pinches of salt on the mushrooms, add the soy sauce (for umami), cumin, and paprika. Toss them together and let sit for 5 minutes to let it sweat.

4. Coat the mushrooms with flour, making sure the heads are separated so they’re crisper, rather than an oily blob of mushrooms and floor.
