Best thing about summer are the BBQ and cocktail parties! When both come together it’s even better! But don’t bring yourself in a difficult position by serving loads of meat before you start the Main course! It’s a pitty if your guests are fullfilled when you bring the star piece. These Marinated Grilled Mushrooms are a great alternative. And they are one of my favorites! So take a quick look!

Marinated Grilled Mushrooms
Marinated Mushrooms are my favorite apetizer! If you had told me as a child I would have declared you insane. But now I would eat them every day! They are perfect for BBQ parties since they are perfect to make ahead. You can store them for a while. They even get better after a couple of days. Don’t forget to grill some lemon too! This “Sneaky Bastard Cocktail” needs to shine on your party!
Grilling the Mushrooms
I suggest you make the marinated grilled mushrooms a couple of days ahead of your party. Just put a sief with chopped mushrooms on the grill while you’re preparing a piece of meat. They don’t take much space nor time to prepare. Why using a sief? It’s a cheap option to make sure the mushrooms don’t slip through the grates. Yet you don’t loose the smokey taste! For these mushrooms I put some vines on my Napoleon gas grill (Read more about it here) while making a Southern vegetable breadpudding! Interested in that recipe? Stay tuned it’s coming soon!

Marinated mushrooms might be the underdog of the appetizers. You don't see it very often but it's one of my favorites. So why not make them in a grilled version and try to bring them into the daylight! They're easy to make and super delicious! Something you can proudly serve at your next party if they last long enough ...
- 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
- 1 jalapeno pepper
- 3 leaves sage
- 1/4 cup sushi vinegar (buy at link in recipe)
- 1/4 cup cider vinegar
- 1/4 cup water
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 250 gr Paris mushrooms or other mushrooms you desire
- 2 tbsp fish sauce
- 2 tbsp sushi vinegar
Add vegetable oil to a sauce pan and toss in a twig of rosemary, sage and a sliced jalapeno pepper with seeds. Cook for about 2 minutes to release the flavors.
Pour in the sushi vinegar, cider vinegar and water and bring to boil. Once the mixture is boiling set aside to cool down.
Clean your mushrooms mushrooms:
When using small mushrooms leave them as a whole. In case of big mushrooms cut them in smaller pieces.
Pour 2 tbsp sushi vinegar and 2 tbsp fish sauce over the mushrooms before grilling them! This will give them a nice flavor.
Add smokewood to your fire (I used vinewood) and smoke/grill the mushrooms untill they are golden brown and soft.
Put the grilled mushrooms in a fitting jar and add the cooled marinade. Shake it thouroughly so the flavors can combine and refrigerate.
