At first I thought maybe I just loved these spicy grilled mushrooms so much because I hadn’t grilled mushrooms in a while. Or maybe it was because of the full moon. But no, it was because these are now officially my favorite mushrooms. They have a perfect light Asian-inspired flavor, with a little vinegar tang and, as with everything I make, a little spicy kick. My goodness they were just delicious. I could (and did) eat them just like popcorn!
I used cremini mushrooms, also known as baby Portobellos to make these spicy grilled mushrooms. You can use any mushrooms you like, even mix a few different kinds in. Just remember that the smaller ones will cook faster. You might have to move the smaller mushrooms away from the hottest part of your grill before the bigger ones get done.
I recommend that you use a grill basket when making this dish. It makes cooking easier and you don’t have to worry about anything falling through the grates. And cleanup is easier too!
