Grilled Asian-Style Portabello Mushrooms

Few vegetables are more delicious on the grill than portabello mushrooms…they lend themselves to all types of flavor profiles and they grill beautifully. This mouthwatering marinade pairs perfectly with the mushrooms, but would also work well with steak.

This marinade is soooo good! Your mushrooms need as little as an hour in the marinade, but up to overnight works well too. Planning a quick weeknight dinner – I would double the marinade and include a few steaks. Happy cooking!
  • 4 tbsp Soy sauce, low-sodium
  • 1/2 of a Lime, zested and juiced
  • 2 tsp Garlic, minced
  • 2 tsp Sambal oelek (see note)
  • 1/2 cup Canola oil
  • 4 Portabello mushrooms, gills removed (see note)
  1. In a small bowl mis together soy sauce, lime, garlic, sambal oelek and canola oil.
  2. Place mushrooms in a large Ziploc bag and pour marinade over. Seal and refrigerate for at least 1 hour and up to overnight.
  3. Spray grill with canola spray and preheat to medium. Place mushrooms on the grill and cook, turning every 5 minutes for 15-20 minutes total.
  4. Remove from grill and serve immediately.
Sambal oelek – An Indonesian hot sauce that adds a subtle kick to the mushrooms. If you don’t have it swap in Siracha. These mushrooms aren’t spicy so you don’t want to skip some type of hot sauce.[br]Why remove the gills? You simply need to scrap them out with a spoon. The gills can hide any sand or dirt – which would make your mushrooms taste gritty. And if you are making any type of sauce the dark gills can discolor anything they touch.
