Truffles are typically used as an accompaniment with meats and fish. But with this beautiful addition to your pantry, you can use them with virtually any kind of food. I particularly love how well the black truffle salt interacts with various flavors. By mixing it with olive oil, I was able to create a creamy, slightly sweet, and light sauce for mushrooms that absolutely melts in the mouth.
To make this sauce, I first toss in olive oil, sage leaves, and a pinch of rock salt. I mix this all up until a smooth paste form is formed. Then, I take my pickled rinds and slice them into half-inch chunks. Then, I take my finger and gently squeeze out a handful at a time into the pan, so that all the slices have the same thickness.
Next, I take my finger and mix in the rock salt and sage leaves until I have created a thick paste. I then place this into a zip lock bag and refrigerate it for an hour or two. While it's in the fridge, I go ahead and mix in a little bit of sugar. This brings out the slightly bitter flavor of the sage leaves. Then, it's ready to toss into olive oil for coating the mushrooms.
Another way you could make this Italian black truffle sauce is by taking fresh oregano and lemon juice and chopping these two items into fine pieces. Then, you take the pieces and put them into a zip lock bag, and add in the olive oil and sage leaves. Ziplock the bag and let it sit overnight for maximum flavor. To enhance the taste, you could season the mixture with some salt. Seasoning the mixture helps bring out the best flavor.
For the final step, you'll want to sprinkle your mushrooms with some salt. You should also take a look at the stems of the basil and add this into the mix as well. Then, all that is left is to toss everything into a large pot. When the mixture is fully blended, then you can place it into the oven at 350 degrees and continue cooking it for about five minutes. In the end, you'll want to use a little olive oil to help seal in the flavors. After that, your Italian black truffle salt is sure to be a hit at your next dinner party!
Making this dish also makes it a very unique dish since there is no other type of cheese that goes into the mix. This allows you to spice it up however you like. If you would like to do something different than adding in oregano and sage leaves, you can add in pepper. You'll also find it works well if you toss in some Rosemary as well. As for the olive oil, you can add a teaspoonful into the mix for extra flavoring. Some people even enjoy the taste of the lemon juice.
As you can see, there really aren't many common ingredients that go into making Italian truffle mushrooms. Yet, this makes for an unusual but very enjoyable dish that is both unique and uncommonly delicious flavor-wise. Since there are few other dishes out there that have this unique mushroom taste combined with olive oil, sea salt, and flavor, it is very rare for anyone to find this dish anywhere but at a restaurant. Yet, the dish just tastes so good you might just have to order it to your favorite restaurant sometime soon.
One final note on the black truffle salt. While I haven't decided whether or not it is the right choice for cooking truffles, I will say that this is the kind of seasoning I would use for just about any type of seafood pasta dish. It is easily incorporated into any sauce without a lot of effort. Since it is a very common and inexpensive ingredient you can't go wrong. In fact, the flavors just blend together very nicely to create a very uncommon but very tasty flavor profile.
