Mirin Glazed Mushrooms

Yes You May, Our Favorite Indulgence is the Virtual Supper Club’s theme this month. I made a side dish (or it could even be an appetizer!) of Mushrooms! I love mushrooms and these Mirin Glazed Mushrooms are exceptionally delicious! There is something about their earthy flavor and texture that just plain satisfies me. Grumpy and I loved these so much, that I’ve already made them more than once and will probably make them again!

Mirin Glazed Mushrooms

The Cooking Light Recipe for these mushrooms did not include an herb, other than it showed some parsley sprinkled on top.  I decided that freshly chopped rosemary stirred in at the end would be a great addition to the flavor of these mushrooms and I was not wrong!  Grumpy really enjoyed them, so much so he commented about how good they were before he even knew I was making them for a recipe post!This recipe has some of the best ingredients!  Butter and slightly sweet Mirin (japanese wine) make these glaze up really nice.  The tiny hit of rosemary adds that touch of herb that make most dishes special.  I hope you will try these, I’m sure you will love them too!

Here is what the rest of our menu for the Month of May looks like!

Val  at More than Burnt Toast made an amazing appetizer (that I cannot wait to try myself!) Her recipe choice of Salt Roasted Shrimp with Lemon Honey Dipping Sauce just has my mouth watering!

Sandi at Whistlestop Cafe Cooking made the main dish of Filet with Bourbon Coffee Sauce.  Ok, just those words tell me that recipe is going to be amazing!  It has bourbon and coffee in it’s sauce, how can it not be!

Susan at The Spice Garden made a colorful and delicious Shrimp, Chorizo, and Corn Salad.  I love the beauty of this dish!

Sarah at All our Fingers in the Pie made a side dish of Garlic Herb Fries.  These sound extra appealing to me because you actually bake the fries but then saute them in a little bit of garlic butter before serving.  Oh YUM.  Now that is an indulgence!

Shelby, that would be ME 🙂 Made the Mirin Glazed Mushrooms in this post!  I call this a definite indulgence because of the buttery sweetness of this recipe!

Jerry at A Life Lived ended the meal with a Lemon-Buttermilk Panna Cotta with Blueberry Sauce.  If you’ve been reading my blog for long, then you know me.  Blueberry is my very favorite fruit.

I hope you enjoyed our virtual meal and I really hope you try some of these recipes on your own!  What is your favorite indulgence?

    This is a dish that I will definitely be making – I love the idea of the 'pickled' nature of the 'shrooms' after being in the mirin for a bit! I can see these as part of cocktail party spread of small bites … what do you think?
