Serves: 4


  • 2 1⁄2 Tbsp. olive oil, divided
  • 4 portobello mushrooms, cleaned and stems removed
  • 1 tsp. salt, divided
  • 1⁄4 tsp. pepper, divided
  • 1 cup shredded Havarti cheese
  • 1⁄3 cup butter
  • 1⁄2 lb. salmon fillet
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tsp. lemon zest
  • 4 dill sprigs


  • Preheat oven to 375°F. Grease a baking sheet with 1⁄2 tablespoon of olive oil. Place mushroom caps stem-side down on baking sheet. Drizzle both sides with an additional tablespoon of olive oil and sprinkle with 1⁄2 teaspoon salt and 1⁄8 teaspoon pepper. Bake for 10 minutes and remove from the oven. Using tongs, turn the caps over. Top each with 1⁄4 cup cheese and bake for 10 more minutes, or until cheese is melted.
  • Meanwhile, season salmon with 1⁄2 teaspoon salt and 1⁄8 teaspoon pepper. In a large saucepan over medium-high heat, melt 1 tablespoon of butter with 1 tablespoon of olive oil; add garlic and cook and stir for 30 seconds until fragrant. Add the salmon and cook 3 minutes, flip, and cook an additional 3 minutes, or until the salmon flakes. Off heat, discard skin and break salmon into 1-inch chunks.
  • Divide flaked salmon among the 4 mushroom caps. Top each with a sprinkling of lemon zest and a dill sprig.
