Hen of the Woods (Maitake) Charcoal Grilled

Start with this, Ha!

I painted the fronds with virgin Olive Oil

To control the heat, I placed them around the edge of the grill.

With several sauces it was an enjoyable accompaniment to the dinner.

Barbequed Hen of the Woods

This occasion, I painted the Maitake fronds with Barbeque Sauce.

I used a perforated grill pan that fits on the small grill I use and keeps the smaller pieces from falling through.

It fits well enough that the lid can go down, allowing a good smoke to develop, too.

Crispy on the edges, delicious, here with a grilled fish and braised greens.

Hen/Maitake Sweet Potato Hash

I don't remember where I was inspired to do this -- but I loved the result.

Basic ingredients: Onion, Garlic, Sweet Potato and Hen of the Woods, on the cutting board, below.

The idea is to dice up things into similar size pieces so they saute into a Hash.

Well, for me, Hash is more of a breakfast item, but I've had it at restaurants for dinner.

With fried eggs, toast & jam,. a very satisfying breakfast.

Maitake & Beech Mushroom Puff Pastry
These Maitake and Beech Mushrooms did not come from the woods but cultivated and from an Asian Grocery -- same as you'd get in the woods, and superb quality.

I sauteed the chopped mushrooms with garlic, onions, white wine and cream, salt, pepper & thyme, let it cool down and thicken and put into a puff pastry and baked it.

These are very satisfying, to me.
