I have to be honest and say that I can’t take credit for this recipe. It was actually my sister-in-law who first introduced us to this dish during one of our family dinner gatherings.

One bite and I knew we had to find out how to make it and share it with all of you here on LCA!

If you haven’t tried enoki mushrooms before, you’re in for a treat!

They’re long, thin and offer a mildly briny mushroom flavor often used in Asian cuisine.  You can find them in many Asian grocery stores and are usually sold in a packaged bunch.

All you have to do is properly clean them following the step-by-step instructions below and wrap them in bacon.  Throw them in the oven or on the grill and you have yourself some perfect yakitori side dish appetizer!

What are Enoki mushrooms?

Enoki mushrooms are also known as velvet shank. The mushroom naturally grows on the stumps of the Chinese hackberry tree, however, most Enoki mushrooms you see now in grocery stores are commercially farmed. These mushrooms have a delicate and mild flavor and are popular in East Asian Cuisine.

Are Enoki mushrooms low in carbs?

7oz of Enoki mushrooms (typically 1 package) is approximately 10 grams of net carbs, making it easy to comfortably fit into your daily carb limits.

Can I grill/BBQ bacon yakitori instead of baking it in the oven?

Yes, you can!  We actually prefer ours on the grill to give it that extra BBQ flavor.  Grill them at 350F for 10-12 minutes under indirect heat.

For this recipe, you should be able to find everything you need at your local supermarket or better yet, your local farmer’s market!

Now, let’s get baking some Japanese bacon wrapped enoki yakitori!

  • 1 Stalk Green Onions

Directions

5) Take a slice of bacon and add a pinch of Enoki mushrooms on the bottom of the bacon as shown.  Roll bacon upwards to form a roll, place a toothpick to hold bacon in place, and transfer to a silicone baking mat.

6) Transfer the bacon wrapped Enoki into the oven and bake for 10-12 minutes or until bacon is browned and crisped.

7) In the meantime, finely chop green onions and set them aside.

8) Once bacon wrapped enoki are done, remove toothpicks and top with chopped green onions.  Enjoy!
