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 have needed immediate service and repair for the Heat Pump in my Condo in Mississauga three times over the last 8 years. Every time during the heat wave in the summer, and also Ice storm in the winter. Cozy Comfort Plus was referred to me by a family member. Since then Cozy Comfort Plus has always been the place for me to go to for professional and great technical service and repair, even for maintenance on my Gas fire place. As I needed to keep my tenants happy and satisfied. They helped me save thousands of Dollars, by recognizing the problem and replacing the faulty part on a cheap Heat Pump installed by the original builder. Cozy Comfort Plus truly stand to their name. I have referred them to my elderly parents also living in a Condo and they had the same great experience I did. Their technicians are experienced, professionals and extremely customer friendly. In all occasions, they treated it as if their own. Thank you Cozy Comfort Plus

We've had Cozy Comfort Plus over at least a couple of times to instal and maintain our furnace over the years for our place in Mississauga. They have gained our trust and exceeded our expectations as customers. They repaired our heat pump that has been working exceptionally since their visit. They also fixed our AC on another occasion. These guys are the best in the business and honestly such wonderful people. If you were looking for a trustworthy organization with integrity, I would highly recommend contacting Brian and team at Cozy Comfort Plus. I'm sure these people will take great care of you, just as they did for us!
