Wonderful if you can get fresh shiitakes.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Prepare the seasoning sauce by combining the soy sauce, sesame oil, olive oil, and sugar. Can be prepared up to a week ahead.
  2. Preheat the broiler.
  3. Wash the arugula and spin dry. Clean the mushrooms and remove the stems. Place them cup side up on a broiling rack.
  4. Brush the seasoning sauce on the mushroom caps. Position the rack 4-6 inches from the heat and broil until the mushrooms look brown and crusty, 2-3 minutes.
  5. Immediately place the mushrooms on top of the arugula. Pour the small amount of seasoning sauce that's left in the pan over the arugula.
  6. Sprinkle with the roasted sesame seeds and serve.

This is good. I like the carmalized effect the sugar has on the shiitakes! The flavor of the seasoning sauce is great, sort of sweet and sour. This made a great lunch, thanks for the recipe!!

As simple and easy as this was I actually really enjoyed it beside Recipe #117372 and Recipe #254965, the flavor was nice and it took no time at all.
