12 medium shiitake mushrooms 1 1/2 to 2 inches across about 1/2 pound
4 teaspoons roasted sesame seeds
-----seasoning sauce-----
2 tablespoons soy sauce
2 tablespoons oriental sesame oil
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 teaspoons sugar
1 bunch arugula -- stems removed

Preparation / Directions:

1. Prepare the seasoning sauce by combining the soy sauce, sesame oil, olive oil, and sugar. Can be prepared up to a week ahead. 2. Preheat the grill. 3. Wash the arugula and spin dry. 4. Clean the mushrooms and remove the stems. Place them cup side up on a grilling rack. 5. Brush the seasoning sauce on the mushroom caps. Position the rack 4-6 inches from the heat and grill until the mushrooms look brown and crusty, 2-3 minutes. They cook very quickly, so keep an eye on them. 6. Immediately place the mushrooms on top of the arugula. Pour the small amount of seasoning sauce that's left in the pan over the arugula. Sprinkle with the roasted sesame seeds and serve.
