Grilled Morels with Arugula

Ingredients
  • * 8 ounces fresh morels
  • * 14 cup melted butter
  • * 2 tablespoons virgin olive oil
  • * Kosher salt to taste
  • * Fresh ground pepper to taste
  • * 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • * 8 ounces arugula leaves
Directions

Trim and discard stems from the morels. In a large bowl, toss the morels with the melted butter and the olive oil and season with salt and pepper to taste. Place the morels in a grilling basket or on metal skewers. (If using wooden skewers, remember to soak the skewers in water first, or they may burn.)

Over a hot charcoal grill or wood fire, grill the mushrooms, turning occasionally, until they are crispy, about 5 to 8 minutes. While the mushrooms are cooking, collect a few ounces of their juices by holding the grilling basket or skewers over a bowl for drippings. Combine the lemon juice with the mushroom juice. Toss the arugula in the mushroom/ lemon juice mix.

Arrange the mushrooms on a serving plate and garnish with the arugula.
