Smoked Mushrooms

  • Yield: 1 pound


  • 1 pound button mushrooms, stemmed, wiped clean, and quartered
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons Emeril's Original Essence


  • Combine the mushrooms, oil, and Essence in a medium bowl and toss to coat evenly.
  • Prepare a stovetop smoker according to the manufacturer's instructions. Place the mushrooms on the grill pan and partially cover the smoker, leaving the lid ajar by 1-inch. Place over medium heat. When it begins to smoke, close the lid completely and cook until the mushrooms are tender and completely smoked, about 25 minutes.
  • Remove from the smoker and set aside until ready to assemble the pasta.
