|1 pounds||Small fresh Shiitake mushrooms, preferably 1 to 1 1/2 inches in diameter|
|½ cup||Olive oil|
|3||Garlic cloves, minced|
|1 tablespoon||Asian sesame oil|
|1 tablespoon||Soy sauce|
|1 teaspoon||Fresh lemon juice|
|2||Scallions, white part only, chopped|
|12||Fresh jalapeno pepper, finely diced (optional)|
|Coarse or kosher salt|
|Freshly ground pepper|
Remove the stems from the Shiitake mushrooms and wipe the caps with a damp cloth. If the mushrooms are small, leave them whole; if large, cut them into halves or quarters.
Heat the olive oil in a large skillet. Add the garlic and cook over high heat, stirring, until it is golden, 2 to 3 minutes. Add the mushrooms and the sesame oil. Stir well, cover and continue cooking over high heat for 3 to 5 minutes, or until the mushrooms are tender.
Add the soy sauce, lemon juice, scallions, jalapeno pepper, if using, and salt and pepper to taste. Cook for 1 minute, or until the mushrooms have absorbed the sauce. Remove from the heat.
Spoon the mushrooms and the sauce into a serving bowl. Serve at room temperature or cold.
You can also broil the mushrooms. In a large bowl, mix them with the olive oil, garlic, sesame oil, soy sauce, lemon juice, scallions and jalapeno pepper, if using. Place them, grill sides up, on a shallow pan, pour any leftover marinade over them and broil for 2 to 3 minutes, or until they are soft.
Yield: 4 to 6 servings
