BBQ Mushroom Skewers with Rosemary Gremolata

  • Cooking time: 30 mins
  • Serves: 12
  • 2 large bunches rosemary
  • 500g Button or Cup Mushrooms, cleaned, stems removed
  • 1 garlic clove
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 lemon, zest finely grated
  • 10g butter
  • Salt and pepper, to season
  1. Strip the leaves from sharpest end of the rosemary sprigs, leaving a few at the top, making enough for 12 skewers. Alternatively, you can use short, soaked bamboo skewers. Thread 3 mushrooms onto each skewer.
  2. Finely chop the garlic and 1 tbsp of the rosemary leaves together on a board. Heat 2 tsp oil in a large frying pan over medium heat. Lightly toast the garlic and rosemary mixture for 1 minute or until lightly golden. Remove and combine with the lemon zest in a bowl.
  3. Increase the heat to medium-high. Melt the butter and remaining oil in the pan. Cook the mushrooms skewers for 4 minutes each side or until golden and cooked. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Transfer to a platter and scatter over the gremolata to serve.

*You will need thick, sturdy rosemary sprigs to be used for skewers in this recipe. Soaked bamboo skewers are the best alternative. If using rosemary sprigs as skewers, use a bamboo skewer to make the first incision to make it easier to insert the rosemary sprigs.
