For this technique, we’re going to start with breaking a culinary rule (not unusual for us) about not getting mushrooms wet. Most recipes instruct you to wipe them off with a damp paper towel instead of running them under or soaking them in water to clean them. This is because mushrooms are porous, and absorb lots of water, which results in mushrooms becoming soggy during cook time. While we agree with this, we’re going to do it anyway here, because this wicked shroom technique is going to plump them up without making them soggy. Stay with us!
We’re going to start by giving the shrooms a good, long soak in a brine first. This allows flavor and moisture to be infused into every little nook and cranny, which is important for the next step, which is searing it. We’re going to get a good sear by placing the shroom into a hot pan, then placing another pan on top of that before baking it. What all of this does is create an outer layer that gets crispy, while the inside develops a super succulent texture.
