Grilled Morel Mushrooms

A touch of garlic butter and the heat of a good grill are all you need to make magic of fresh morels.  If you feel like getting fancy, tuck a bit of gorgonzola or other blue-veined cheese into the mushrooms before grilling.

1/2 pound
small to medium-size
fresh morels
1/4 cup butter
1 tablespoon minced garlic
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon tamari or soy sauce
1/8 cup parmesan cheese, finely grated

Prepare a fire of good wood coals, or preheat a gas grill.

  1. Melt the butter with the garlic, salt, and tamari in a skillet set over medium heat, then remove from the heat to prevent the garlic from burning.
  2. Using a basting brush, coat the morels with the melted butter mixture, or roll them around in the melting pot until they are well coated.
  3. When the coals are ready, place the morels on the grill.
  4. Rotate the morels after two to three minutes. Continue rotating every couple of minutes until all sides have cooked and they start to get crispy.

Note: Depending on their size and thickness, the morels will take between 5 and 10 minutes to cook thoroughly.

  1. Remove the morels from the grill and sprinkle with grated parmesan cheese before serving.
