  • 1 whole Pack 8 Oz/230g Organic Baby Bella Mushrooms
  • 1/2 teaspoon Sea Salt /For the water
  • 1/2 Cup Olive Oil
  • 2 tbsp. Lime Juice about 1 large lime or 2 smaller/Add more for extra sourness
  • 1/2 tbsp. Pure Honey
  • 1 Tbs. Soy Sauce
  • Coarse salt or sea salt to taste about 1/8 tsp.
  • 1/2 tsp. Red Chili Pepper Flakes
  • 6 Garlic cloves sliced
  • 3 Scallions
  • 1 tsp.  Peppercorns dried/ or ground black pepper


  1. In a boiling salted (1/2 tsp. Salt) water, put whole mushrooms and boil for about 7 minutes- I do not wash mushrooms until the moment I am going to cook them; just lightly wash under cold water to get the hidden dirt off and place in the boiling water.
  2. In a meanwhile mix Olive oil, lime juice, honey, soy sauce, garlic, chopped scallions, soy sauce, red chili pepper flakes, and dried peppercorns
  3. Once the mushrooms are done boiling, drain and put in a deep bowl;
  4. Pour the marinade over hot mushrooms and cover with aluminum foil.
  5. Let it sit in the marinade until it's cooled down and at room temperature. You can squeeze more lime juice over when ready to eat. *Lemon is another alternative!
  6. You can refrigerate it by placing it in the airtight container; it can last for up to 3 days.
  7. The taste is fantastic!!! If you are a mushroom lover, I am certain that you will love these marinated Mushrooms.

Recipe Notes

Garlic is extremely healthy but Soy sauce not as much as other soy products, however, it does have some good health benefits. If you cannot consume soya sauce due to the soy allergies and high blood pressure, I strongly suggest and encourage to omit the soy sauce and use a dash of salt instead to your preferences. Soy sauce does not have very high beneficial isoflavones, which are present in other soy products such as edamame or tofu. *Isoflavones are a natural antioxidant which is found in Soy Products; the consumption of soy products has many health benefits, including protection against breast cancer, prostate cancer, menopausal symptoms, heart disease, and osteoporosis.
