Oriental Grilled Mushroom

It looked ugly, but YUMMY! :-p

It seems like busy moment is never ending. Another week gone, and going to be end of month closing again....., I feel like time flies fast like rocket now!

Fast and easy meal is my priority now. I am still trying my best not to consume too much canned or frozen food. So, I still maintain cooking from fresh produce, but make it really simple. For example, I will marinate the meat or seafood at night, then I don't have to spend too much time on the food preparation when I'm tired from work.


This grilled mushroom was accidentally invented. I had some mushrooms sitting in the fridge needed to finish ASAP before they go bad. While I was going to grill some chicken kabob the other day, I was searching some vegetables in my fridge to put on my grill too, I found I had nothing left but just mushroom. So, I immediately marinated them with some soy sauce, oyster sauce, sesame oil and garlic, they tasted so good that was beyond my expectation, Tom even demands more.

1. 230g whole mushroom - remove the stem

2 cloves garlic - sliced
1/8 cup soy sauce
1 tsp oyster sauce
few drops of sesame oil and garlic oil
a pinch of sugar
a pinch of white pepper

some pre-soaked BBQ skewer
some green onion strips and garlic slices to skew together with mushroom

1. Rub and marinate the mushroom with sauce B for 30 minutes or longer for better flavor.
2. Skew 4~5 mushroom per stick with onion strip and garlic slice as a spacer in between.
3. Grill on medium heat for 4~5 minutes each side. Brush the remain marination sauce once each side.
4. Serve warm


  1. This is the one I love most. Sometime I just add garlic, pepper, salt and butter.

  2. Anncoo, sound yummy! I will try your recipe someday! :-)

  3. I completely agree that time flies too fast these days. I remember it was so much slower when I was little & living in a 'kampung'. Sigh. Anyway, I love mushrooms & sometimes simple marinade like this is the best!

  4. Nyonya... when we still little, we expect the grow fast, when we become an adult, we start to think about "anti-aging" ...LOL!!!
    I cooked another pot of mushroom again tonight, got is just USD1 for a big whole pack!! :-)

  5. I thought it was kebab a second ago. I love grilled mushrooms! yummy..
