You can easily smoke mushrooms at home with this step-by-step recipe by chef Marcus Denby.
1. Trim oyster mushrooms from their stalk and place on a perforated tray. 2. Get a base tray that will fit a burning log and put the perforated tray on top.
3. Sprinkle mushroms with sea salt. 4. Get a good burning log and place in the bottom tray and douse with a little water to get the log smoking. 5. Quickly place the perforated tray on top and seal with aluminium foil getting a good seal to keep as much smoke in.
6. Smoke mushrooms for 5 mins 7. Remove foil to reveal smokey flavoured and coloured mushrooms.
