BBQ mushroom skewers with rosemary gremolata

Have mushrooms laying in the fridge but not sure what to do with them? Simply throw them on the barbie and let the magic happen with this recipe.

Ingredients:

2 large bunches rosemary
500g button mushrooms, cleaned, stems removed
1 garlic clove
2 tbsp olive oil
1 lemon, zest finely grated
10g butter
Salt and pepper, to season

Directions:

1. Strip the leaves from sharpest end of the rosemary sprigs, leaving a few at the top, making enough for 12 skewers. Alternatively, you can use short, soaked bamboo skewers. Thread 3 mushrooms onto each skewer.

2. Finely chop the garlic and 1 tbsp of the rosemary leaves together on a board. Heat 2 tsp oil in a large frying pan over medium heat. Lightly toast the garlic and rosemary mixture for 1 minute or until lightly golden. Remove and combine with the lemon zest in a bowl.

3. Increase the heat to medium-high. Melt the butter and remaining oil in the pan. Cook the mushrooms skewers for 4 minutes each side or until golden and cooked. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Transfer to a platter and scatter over the gremolata to serve.

Tips:

You will need thick, sturdy rosemary sprigs to be used for skewers in this recipe. Soaked bamboo skewers are the best alternative. If using rosemary sprigs as skewers, use a bamboo skewer to make the first incision to make it easier to insert the rosemary sprigs.
