Butter Shiitake Mushroom Ingredients

Other than the fresh shiitake mushrooms, the rest of the ingredients (pictured above) are pantry staples. You can use any favourite herbs – I usually use dried Italian seasoning, which is a handy blend of several aromatic herbs such as rosemary & thyme or dried parsley. For fresh herbs, my choice will be a sprig of rosemary and thyme, or chopped Italian parsley, or a small handful of basil leaves. You can also mix shiitake with other types of mushroom (my favourite will be baby oyster and button). The soy sauce can be substituted with any savoury sauce in the fridge (such as teriyaki) or 1/2 tsp garlic salt. This is a really flexible recipe which fits the cook’s access to ingredients and mood of the day.

    Thanks for the simple but tasty looking Shitake mushroom recipe.

    For anyone who finds that they are burning the butter, you might try using half the amount of butter and then substituting olive oil for the other half, which should help keep the butter from burining.

    Also kind of curious, but for a lot of mushrooms they say not to wash them, but instead to “brush” them, theory being that washing them dilutes the flavor. Is that the same rule for shitake mushrooms as well???

      Hi markie, thanks for sharing your tip about how not to burn the butter.

      I rinse all my mushrooms briskly with a kind of a sieve with large holes … I’m a little paranoid about not washing my mushrooms because our produce are not organic here, and I don’t know how they have been packed :D So far my mushrooms did not become slimy after rinsing, and I’ve read somewhere that the so-called ‘diluting’ of flavour is kind of negligible if not at all.
