Recipe

 

Spiced Shiitake Mushrooms

Serves 4 to 6

 

These mushrooms make a fine appetizer, either alone or accompanied by "honeyed" nuts, Cold Beer Shrimp or Spicy Cucumbers with Sichuan Peppercorn Vinaigrette. They may also be served with meat or game.

  • 1 pound small fresh shiitake mushrooms, preferably 1-1/2 inches in diameter
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 tablespoon Asian sesame oil
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
  • 2 scallions, white part only, chopped
  • 1/2 fresh jalapeño pepper, finely diced (optional)
  • Coarse or kosher salt
  • Freshly ground pepper
  1. Remove stems from the shiitake mushrooms and wipe the caps with a damp cloth. If the mushrooms are small, leave them whole; if large, cut them into halves or quarters.
  2. Heat the olive oil in a large skillet. Add the garlic and cook over high heat, stirring, until it is golden 2 to 3 minutes. Add the mushrooms and the sesame oil. Stir well, cover and continue cooking over high heat for 3 to 5 minutes, or until the mushrooms are tender.
  3. Add the soy sauce, lemon juice, scallions, jalapeño pepper, if using, and salt and pepper to taste. Cook for 1 minute, or until the mushrooms have absorbed the sauce. Remove from the heat.
  4. Spoon the mushrooms and the sauce into a serving bowl. Serve at room temperature or cold.

Note: After removing the mushrooms from the pan, save any remaining oil for salad dressing or stir frying.
