Recipe: Grilled Shiitake Mushrooms
Grilled Shiitake Mushrooms
4 - 6 large shiitake mushrooms* - stems trimmed and brushed clean with a
1/4 cup of fresh lemon juice, or juice from 2 lemons
1/2 cup of extra virgin olive oil
4 garlic cloves smashed (with the side of a knife), skins removed and
3-4 anchovy fillets
1 tablespoon of chopped fresh thyme
1 tablespoon of chopped fresh marjoram
Salt and pepper to taste
In a small food processor or blender, puree the lemon juice, olive oil and
anchovies. Transfer to a bowl and stir in fresh herbs and season to taste
with salt and pepper. Place marinade and mushrooms in a large bowl so
marinade will cover the mushroom caps and marinate for at least 20 minutes
and or up to 1 hour.
To Grill Mushrooms:
Place mushrooms over medium low heat on grill, gill side up. Grill
mushrooms, until marked and softened about 4 minutes. Turn mushrooms and
grill about 1-2 minutes (be careful as to not char the gills), until fork
tender. Serve immediately.
*Use Portobello mushrooms if you can't find the large shitakes.
Portobellos, depending on their size, will probably take longer to cook.
