BBQ Mushroom Skewers

Pintrest is such an addicting site, one that I avoided for years. My mom, sister and others had gushed about how wonderful it was but I just couldn’t bring myself to go onto it. The reason for the avoidance is because when it comes to websites like that I have a very addictive personality and I knew that I could waste hours browsing. Well this year I signed up and all I can say is “Why did I wait so long!?” I have found so many ideas on the site, both recipe wise as well as travelling and crafting inspiration. Every once in a while I find an exceptional gem that really gets me excited and Dinners and Dreams is one of those gems. Nisrine Merzouki is a Moroccan expat who lives in the US. Not only are her recipes enticing but with the documentation of her recent trip back home I am even more anxious then ever to hurry up and go visit Morocco. I love North African food and her blog is a celebration of the food of her homeland so please show her some love and check out her wonderful blog.

Usually I find that I have to slightly alter a recipe to my taste or because of ingredients that I have on hand but Nisrine’s recipe is perfection as is. Both my husband and my daughter loved these delicious mushrooms and I had to fight them to save me some as I finished the rest of the meal.

Mushroom Skewers Recipe

4 servings
1/2 Tbsp harissa

225g (8 oz) mushrooms, halved lengthwise


Whisk the harissa, olive oil, balsamic vinegar, and oregano together in a medium bowl.

Add the halved mushrooms and toss well to coat. Marinate for 30 minutes.

Thread the mushrooms skewers, if you are using bamboo skewers make sure you presoak them in cold water for about 10 minutes. Grill them the BBQ for 5 minutes per side.

    While I am not a fan of mushrooms, my husband loves them. I will have to make these for him next time I am grilling steaks.

  2. I love mushrooms…can’t get enough of them! I use mushrooms on kabobs all the time, but never do them just by themselves. I love this idea…especially how you cut them in half! They look even better like that!

    That does sound like the perfect addition to try with our next mushroom receipe. I may sneak some in and see what they say! :-)
