Garlic Grilled Mushroom Skewers

    We absolutely love mushrooms here.  Well, Matt and I do anyway.  Jax did.  Then he didn't.  So, who knows?  Anyway, we had a pound of mushrooms to use and a fire going, so I sprung into action.  We put our newest set of metal skewers to use and made a delicious treat.  The flavor is warm and deep and goes great with the mushroom and the smoke from the grill. I love the combination of garlic, soy sauce and mushrooms so I kept it pretty simple. The two of us had no problem taking care of all of them!

Garlic Grilled Mushroom Skewers


1 lb fresh button mushrooms
1/4 olive oil
3 T soy sauce
1 T sesame oil
1 tsp garlic powder

  1. In a large zipper bag or container with lid, mix together oils, soy sauce and garlic powder.
  2. Add mushrooms and shake to cover.  Let sit for about ten minutes.  
  3. Shake again to make sure all of the mushrooms are coated in marinade.  Thread on metal skewers (or wood skewers that have been soaked in water) and place on grill.
  4. Over a pretty hot grill, cook mushrooms for about 5 minutes.  Flip then cook for about 5 minutes more. (All grills are different, so watch and flip when they hit your desired level of doneness)
  5. Remove from grill and let cool slightly (those darn mushrooms hold their heat!)
Some of our other grilled favorites:


  1. I love mushrooms too, but when I was a kid I hated them. He might like them when he gets older :)

    Those looks great!


    1. I hope so because Matt and I can't get enough. The funniest part is he loved them for a while and spits them out now!

      I hope you had a great weekend, Rue!


  2. Mmmmm, so simple, and sound so good!

    1. They really were good. I wish I had gotten better pictures, but we had them eaten before I could!
