Szechuan-Grilled Mushrooms


Makes 4 servings


1 pound large fresh mushrooms
2 tablespoons soy sauce
2 teaspoons peanut or vegetable oil
1 teaspoon dark sesame oil
1 clove garlic, minced
1/2 teaspoon crushed Szechuan peppercorns or red pepper flakes


  1. Place mushrooms in large plastic bag. Add remaining ingredients to bag. Close bag securely; shake to coat mushrooms with marinade. Marinate at room temperature 15 minutes or cover and refrigerate up to 8 hours. (Mushrooms will absorb marinade.)
  2. Thread mushrooms onto skewers. Grill or broil mushrooms 5 inches from heat 10 minutes or until lightly browned, turning once. Serve immediately.


For <em>Szechuan-Grilled Mushrooms and Onions</em>, add 4 green onions, cut into 1-1/2-inch pieces, to marinade. Alternately thread onto skewers with mushrooms. Proceed as directed in step 2.
