Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cooking Time: 8 minutes
Marinating Time: 1 hour
5 medium, fresh shiitake mushrooms, stems removed
2 portobello mushrooms, stems removed and sliced lengthwise
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1 teaspoon fresh ginger, minced
1 1/2 tablespoons tamari
2 tablespoons rice syrup
1 tablespoon sesame oil
2 tablespoons vegetable broth
1. Combine last 6 ingredients in a small jar or bowl. Pour marinade over mushrooms arranged in a single layer in a baking pan. Turn the mushrooms so both sides are coated. Marinate 1 hour, flipping mushrooms occasionally.
2. Place marinated mushrooms in a well-oiled grilling basket and cook over medium-hot coals 8 to 10 minutes or until done, turning occasionally and basting with remaining marinade. Watch carefully or they’ll burn.
