Fried Wild Mushrooms with Creamy Semolina & Thick-cut Bacon

Shiitake mushrooms are laden with umami as is universal favourite, bacon. Mushrooms paired with lashings of salty meat and a soft creamy semolina is the ultimate winter comfort dish.

Fried Wild Mushrooms with Creamy Semolina & Thick-cut Bacon

Serves 4

2 cups milk
1 cup semolina
⅔ cup mascarpone
2 tbsp finely grated parmesan

For the semolina, place milk and 2 cups of water in a saucepan over medium-high heat and bring to the boil.

Add semolina in a thin, steady stream and whisk constantly for 2 minutes until thick and creamy.

Stir through mascarpone and parmesan. Season to taste with salt and freshly ground black pepper. Keep warm.

Meanwhile, heat oil and butter in a frypan over high heat. Add garlic; cook for 1 minute until fragrant. Then add mushrooms and cook, tossing the pan, for 6 minutes until crisp and golden.
