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.

My furnace broke mid February and from the first call Cozy Comfort Plus exceeded my expectations and it was the best customer service experience I've had in a very long time. They had someone here within two hours who very knowledgeable and gave me several options. I ended up deciding to replace my furnace and they had it done the next day. From my first contact on the phone, to the technician to the installation staff they were all professional, responsive and truly a pleasure to work with. In a little over 24 hours the heat was back on and at a very fair price.

I cannot recommend them highly enough as it's a stressful time when your furnace goes mid February. They even submitted the rebates before I had a chance to call them the next day!! All I can say is WOW.

Brian is very easy to work with, his advise about which gas stove to go with was excellent and my parents ending up going with the high-end Regency model. His installers were very good and were easy to talk to about the job and they did an excellent job. I like it when a contractor works with their customers and cares about their company to back up the work done. I highly recommend them and a special thank you to Brian who runs an excellent company! My parents are extremely happy and can't wait on those cold nights to go by to feel the warm heat of their new stove.
