Button Mushrooms


6 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
1-1/2 pounds whole small button mushrooms, cleaned
3 tablespoons butter
Sea salt or coarse salt
1 tablespoon minced garlic
1-1/2 teaspoons fresh-chopped thyme leaves
2 tablespoons fresh-squeezed lemon juice
1/2 cup white wine
1 tablespoon chopped fresh Italian flat-leaf parsley

Method :-

In a large skillet over high heat, heat the olive oil. When the olive oil is hot, sprinkle the mushrooms in a single layer on the olive oil. NOTE: Do not move or stir the mushrooms until they have caramelized on the bottom, approximately 2 minutes. If you toss them too soon, they will release their liquid and begin to steam. When the bottoms are caramelized, toss them and continue to cook for approximately 5 minutes.

Add the butter and continue to cook and toss for and additional 3 to 5 minutes, until beautifully browned. Season with salt and pepper and add the garlic; sauté another 2 minutes. Reduce heat to medium; add thyme leaves, lemon juice, and white wine. simmer to evaporate the liquid and until the mushrooms are glazed with the sauce.

Toss in the parsley, transfer to a warm bowl, and serve immediately
