Grilled Mushrooms on Skewers

I absolutely love these Grilled Mushrooms on Skewers in every constellation! This easy marinated mushroom recipe is perfect for the grill. I used baby portobello mushrooms because I think they meatier than their cousins; the buttons or the crimini but this recipe does work with the regular mushrooms too.

We broke out our BBQ this week and anything that can be grilled gets tossed onto the sizzling hot iron grates. To keep the mushrooms from falling through the grates, I skewered them (everything is better on a stick, or at least my 3-yr old thinks so).

Ingredients for Grilled Portobello Mushrooms:

16 oz (1 lb) Baby Portabello Mushrooms (crimini or button work too)

For the marinade: 

1/4 cup olive oil
1/4 cup lemon juice
small handful of parsley
1 tsp sugar
1 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
1-2 garlic cloves
1 Tbsp balsamic vinegar

Grilled Mushrooms on Skewers
What you will need:

10 (10-inch) bamboo/wood skewers

How To Make Grilled Mushrooms on Skewers:

1. Place 10 medium skewers into a baking dish and cover with water. It’s important to soak the skewers for at least 15 minutes (more is better) or they will burn too quickly on the grill

2. Place all of the marinade ingredients in a food processor and pulse several times until marinade is nearly smooth.

3. Rinse your mushrooms and pat dry. Cut each mushroom in half, so each piece has half of the mushroom stem.

4. Place the mushroom halves into a large gallon-size ziploc bag, or a medium bowl and pour in the marinade. Shake the bag until all of the mushrooms are evenly coated in marinade. Refrigerate and marinate for 30-45 minutes.

5. Skewer the mushrooms snugly onto the bamboo/wooden skewers that have been soaking (no need to dry the skewers). Skewering the mushrooms was a little annoying at first until I got the hang of things. I’ve found that it’s easiest to skewer them by twisting them onto the stick. If you just push the stick through, it may cause the mushroom to crack.

6. Place the skewered mushrooms on the hot grill for about 3 minutes per side, making sure the mushrooms do not burn to the grill. The mushrooms are done when they are soft; as mushrooms should be 🙂 Remove from the grill. Cover with foil to keep them warm until ready to serve.

    My grill doesn’t have a thermometer. Just High to low knobs. What would you say 300* is? Medium high? Reply

      Hi Catalina, 300˚F is closer to medium heat on a grill. Reply

    These are so delicious! Thank you for posting. I haven’t been a fan of mushrooms my whole life, but these….YUM! I made these twice this week. Once with chicken skewers and again with shrimp skewers. Reply

    Hi Natasha, so I made these again but this time I used portabella tops to make mushroom burgers with, and I let them marinate overnight to make dinner prep easier for the next day. I also love a good spinach salad with mushrooms so I decided to combine the two. I grilled the tops open side down first for a few minutes, then I flipped them over and piled a good bunch of fresh baby spinach inside the tops and laid a slice of havarti cheese over the spinach. Wow. The spinach wilted just a little bit and the cheese melted to seal it all in. I served them up on kaiser rolls with a fresh garden tomato slice and a little mayo. I think I need to start my own blog, lol, but I already have too many hobbies and too little time. Reply

    These grilled mushrooms were outstanding, thank you. I made it with baby bellas and they disappeared fast! I used a perforated grilling tray so I didn’t have to mess with skewers and saved a little prep time. Definitely a keeper. Reply

      I haven’t tried grilling them so I couldn’t really tell you an exact time or temp. I googled some recipes and you could try 425 for about 15 minutes (more if the mushrooms are large). Let me know how it goes! 🙂 Reply

    I made these tonight in the oven. I used a basting brush and coated them a couple of times. Still tasted yummy! Reply
