    Ahi Burgers & Grilled Stuffed Portobellos

    posted in Main Dishes |

    We were short on time to prepare dinner tonight, so we had Ahi Tuna Burgers from Whole Foods, and found a good onion salsa recipe to garnish it (along with some wasabi mayo!), and a grilled portobello recipe as a side. We also grilled some bell peppers, green onions, and tomato. We heart grilled veggies.

    Grilled Stuffed Portobello Mushrooms
    ————————————
    2/3 cup chopped plum tomato
    1/4 cup (1 ounce) shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese
    1 teaspoon olive oil, divided
    1/2 teaspoon finely chopped fresh or 1/8 teaspoon dried rosemary
    1/8 teaspoon coarsely ground black pepper
    1 garlic clove, crushed
    4 (5-inch) portobello mushroom caps
    2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
    2 teaspoons low-sodium soy sauce
    Cooking spray
    2 teaspoons minced fresh parsley

    Prepare grill.
    Combine the tomato, cheese, 1/2 teaspoon oil, rosemary, pepper, and garlic in a small bowl.
    Remove brown gills from the undersides of mushroom caps using a spoon, and discard gills. Remove stems; discard. Combine 1/2 teaspoon oil, juice, and soy sauce in a small bowl; brush over both sides of mushroom caps. Place the mushroom caps, stem sides down, on grill rack coated with cooking spray, and grill for 5 minutes on each side or until soft.
    Spoon 1/4 cup tomato mixture into each mushroom cap. Cover and grill 3 minutes or until cheese is melted. Sprinkle with parsley.
