14 oz large fresh mushrooms, preferably with 2-inch caps

5 scallions

3 tablespoons sake

2 tablespoons Japanese soy sauce (shoyu)

4 tablespoons Japanese rice vinegar

1/2 teaspoon salt

For garnish (optional):

Finely shredded scallion


  1. Wipe the mushrooms with a damp cloth. If they are large, quarter them; otherwise, halve them. Finely chop the scallions.
  2. Put the mushrooms and scallions in a bowl. Add all the remaining ingredients and toss to mix. Leave the mushrooms to marinate in their dressing for 5 minutes, then toss again and set aside another 5 minutes.
  3. Toss the mushrooms once more before serving, garnished with scallion shreds if you like.
