PORTOBELLO MUSHROOM SANDWICHES WITH ROCKET AND BALSAMIC AIOLI

INGREDIENTS

AÏOLI

  • 5 tbsp mayonnaise
  • 2 tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • ½ tsp garlic, finely chopped

MARINADE

  • 175ml extra-virgin olive oil
  • 60ml red wine vinegar
  • 2 tbsp shallot, minced
  • 1 tsp garlic, minced
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • ½ tsp freshly ground black pepper
  • 6 large portabello mushrooms, cleaned, stems and black gills removed
  • Sea Salt & Freshly ground black pepper
  • 6 rolls
  • Rocket leaves

METHOD

  • In a small bowl combine the aioli ingredients. Refrigerate until ready to assemble the sandwiches.
  • In a small bowl whisk the marinade ingredients. Place the mushroom caps, gill sides down, in a large glass baking dish. Brush the mushroom caps generously with the marinade and turn the caps over. Spoon the rest of the marinade over the gill side. Allow the mushrooms to marinate at room temperature for 15 to 20 minutes.
  • Prepare the grill for direct cooking over medium heat (175° to 230°C).
  • Remove the mushrooms from the dish and reserve the marinade. Lightly season the mushrooms with salt and pepper. Grill the mushrooms, gill side down, over direct medium heat, with the lid closed as much as possible, until they begin to soften, 4 to 6 minutes. Brush the cap sides of the mushrooms with some of the remaining marinade from the dish. Turn the mushrooms over and grill them until they are tender when pierced with a knife, 4 to 6 minutes.
  • Grill the rolls, cut side down, over direct medium heat until lightly toasted, about 30 seconds.
  • Spread aioli on the toasted buns and top each one with some rocket and a mushroom. Serve warm.
