grilled seasoned easy portabello mushrooms

Mushrooms.  These fungi were something that I strongly avoided for most of my formative years–my father is not a fan, and I ipso facto also was determined to dislike them.  Eventually, I was tricked out of this delusion, and I’m a better person for it.  I would challenge each of you to go eat something you are certain you dislike because you’ve “always hated it” and be pleasantly surprised by the outcome.  Thanks to this initiative, I now enjoy: asparagus, brussels sprouts, beets, lobster, and mushrooms.

This recipe was a brain-child of ours from earlier this summer when our friend Russ (of The Domestic Man) and his family came over to barbecue with us.  This is brilliantly simple, and is a great side for your grilled meats.  This could also be accomplished in a skillet, but why not take advantage of the grill while the weather is still in our favor.  Let us know how you enjoy these delicious and easy mushrooms.
