For the salsa verde:

Trim the green garlic bulbs, reserving the greens. Quarter the green garlic bulbs and slice thinly. Combine with kosher salt and make a paste using a mortar and pestle. Pick the peppercress, discarding any thick, tough stems. Finely chop the peppercress leaves and tender stems. Chop the capers. Combine garlic paste with peppercress, capers and lemon juice in a medium mixing bowl. Whisk in the olive oil and canola oil. Adjust seasoning if necessary.

To assemble:

Trim the stems of the oyster mushrooms. Pull the mushrooms apart with your fingers to create bite sized pieces. Heat a sauté pan over high heat and add 1 T canola oil. Add enough mushrooms to cover the bottom of the pan in a single layer. Season the mushrooms with salt and fresh black pepper. Sauté until mushrooms are lightly caramelized. Repeat with remaining mushrooms if necessary.
