Serves: 6 to 8

 

Prep Time: 45 minutes

 

Marinade Time: 2 hours

 

Grill Time: 10 minutes
 

Ingredients

  • Napoleon® Multi-Grill Basket
  • 8 large portobello mushroom caps
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 4 cups hot water
Marinade
  • ½ cup liquid honey
  • ½ cup hoisin sauce
  • ¼ cup soy sauce
  • ¼ cup rice vinegar
  • 1 tbsp freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 tbsp fresh cilantro, chopped
  • 1 tbsp sesame seeds
  • 1 tbsp grainy mustard
  • 1 tsp toasted sesame oil
  • salt to taste
  • 1½ cups fresh cipollini onions, trimmed and peeled
  • 3 tbsp vegetable oil or 1½ cups cipollini onions in oil (available at Italian markets), drained
  • 4 bunches arugula
  • 4½ cup goat cheese, crumbled
  • 1 tbsp fresh cilantro, chopped

Method

  1. Brush the portobellos to remove any dirt. Place mushrooms in a large bowl. Dissolve salt in hot water and pour over the mushrooms. Place a plate over the mushrooms to fully submerge them, cover with plastic wrap, and let steep for 15 minutes.
Marinade:
  1. Whisk together the honey, hoisin sauce, soy sauce, vinegar, pepper, cilantro, sesame seeds, mustard, and sesame oil. Season to taste with salt.
  2. Drain mushrooms and pat dry with paper towels. Place, gill side up, in a flat glass dish. Pour the marinade over the mushrooms and let marinate for 2 hours.
  3. Preheat the grill to medium-high (450°F/230°C).
  4. Remove mushrooms from the marinade, reserving the marinade for basting. If using fresh cipollini, toss them in the vegetable oil to coat. Secure the mushrooms and onions in the basket.
  5. Place the basket on the grill with the mushrooms gill side up. Grill until lightly charred and tender, about 4 to 5 minutes a side, basting frequently with the reserved marinade.
  6. Carefully remove the basket from the grill and empty. Allow the mushrooms and onions to cool slightly, then slice the mushroom caps into ¼-inch (0.5 cm) slices.
  7. Arrange the arugula on a platter. Toss the onions and mushroom slices together and arrange over the arugula. Top with goat cheese and cilantro.

I requested info online from a few places I found on the internet. Cozy Comfort was the most responsive, not just with the initial info request, but with back-and-forth calls, emails and a site visit. I wanted to convert my wood fireplace to gas, and Brian guided my through the whole process. He explained the type of unit I needed (gas insert), told me the different brands and models that would fit my fireplace opening, and explained the pros and cons of each.

Within a week of my first call, my new gas insert was installed, and a week after that, the stone mantle and hearth were in. The installers laid plastic to protect our flooring, maintained social distance, and were kind to my curious cat and dog. They walked me through how to use the fireplace once the gas insert unit was in. Also, my original fireplace was about 8 inches off-centre (wall is only 13’, so it was noticeable), and Cozy Comfort centred the new one - it looks stunning.

Thanks for everything, Cozy Comfort! I can’t wait for winter 😄

I can't stress enough how happy & pleased we are with our Napoleon BBQ. From the moment we walked into the showroom, we were met with a very friendly greeting.

My wife and I were so impressed with the calm, sincere and gracious demeanor of Brian. He answered all our questions, gave us his thoughts and professional opinions on everything inquired about.

We will definitely continue our business with Brian and the entire team at Cozy Comfort Plus.
