Take care not to overcook shitakes, or their subtle aroma will disappear and they will be dry. Serve very hot.

Super easy

Grilled Shitake Mushrooms with Ponzu Dressing

Ingredients

For 4 Person(s)

Cream

  • 12 large fresh shitake mushrooms, wiped clean and stems removed
  • 1 Salt
  • 4 tablespoons Ponzu Dressing
  • 1 tablespoons finely chopped green onion

Grilled Shitake Mushrooms with Ponzu Dressing Directions

  1. Salt the mushrooms lightly, then grill them over a hot fire, stem side first, for about 2 ½ minutes per side. (Alternately you can pan fry the mushrooms—cooking them in a skillet in a scant amount of oil for 3 minutes total.)
  2. Cut each cooked mushroom in half; a serving equals 6 halves. Place halves in 4 small dishes and top each with 1 tablespoon of Ponzu Dressing. Garnish with green onions.
