"I love the texture and flavour of shiitake mushrooms," says Gilmore. "If you can't find good shiitakes, then use large Swiss brown or flat mushrooms."
|01||Heat a barbecue (20-30 minutes), or prepare a wood or coal fire, burning coals down to hot embers (1-1½ hours).|
|02||For umami butter, place butter in a bowl with ¾ tsp ground konbu, ¼ tsp ground shiitake (you may have a little remaining) and remaining ingredients, and mix well.|
|03||Discard tough stems from mushrooms, brush with oil, season with salt and grill over high heat, turning occasionally, until golden brown and tender (4-6 minutes).|
|04||To serve, arrange hot mushrooms on a platter gill-side up and top each with a teaspoonful of umami butter.|
