Post your great Hen of the Woods (Maitake) Dinner Pics & Recipes here
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.
Wooo ..Man that looks Really Good
