Oven-Roasted Shiitake Mushrooms With Garlic And Coarse Salt

Type: Vegetables
Courses: Starters and appetizers
Serves: 6 people

Recipe Ingredients

  Oil spray
1 lb 454g / 16ozShiitake mushrooms - stems removed
  (abt 1 1/4 lbs with stems; save stems for
1 tablespoon 15mlOlive oil - (to 3 tbspns)
1 tablespoon 15mlVery finely-minced or pureed fresh garlic
1 1/2 teaspoons 7.5mlCoarse sea salt (if salt is in very large
  Crystals, you may crush it a bit in a
  Mortar and pestle)
  Herb sprigs - for garnish, (optional)
  (thyme or a bit of rosemary)

Recipe Instructions

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Spray the pan with oil. Place shiitakes in baking dish; caps up or down, it makes no difference. Make sure pan is big enough so the mushrooms are not on top of each other; they need air space and breathing room to roast up properly.

Toss the mushrooms with the oil, garlic, and salt. Pop the pan in the oven, uncovered, and let bake 10 to 12 minutes. Take them out. Shake the pan a few times. Some of the mushrooms should be starting to get a little golden on the lighter, underneath side of the caps. You will probably need to put them back in for a few more minutes say, 3 to 5 minutes, maybe more if your oven wasn't really hot when you put them in. At least a third of the mushrooms should be starting to color and get a little crunchy. Using the lesser amount of oil, this will happen more quickly.

Serve, warm or at room temperature, with an optional decorative sprig of herb.

This recipe yields 6 to 8 servings as a starter; however, most people will want two portions.
