Do I Remove the Gills of Portobello Mushrooms?

Answer

No, you do not have to remove the gills from a mushroom. However, they can be a little bitter, giving your dishes a bitter taste. If you would like, you can always just snip the gills a little so your dishes don't end up bitter or your sauces don't end up dark in color.

I normally remove the gills. The gills, being very thin, are likely to burn. This can give you a gritty feeling when eating.

They only need to be removed if they are mushy and crushed-looking. Use a small spoon, preferably a grapefruit spoon with its serrated tip, to scrape dark gills from the underside
