Wild Mushrooms Sauteed in Butter, Sherry and Lemon

Wild Mushrooms Sauteed in Butter, Sherry and Lemon

When I was at the farmers market on the weekend I noticed some nice looking mushrooms and I remembered having seen a recipe for sauteed wild mushrooms with sherry and lemon . I really like mushrooms sauteed in butter and addition of sherry, lemon and parsley sounded really good. I ended up getting up some hedgehog, chanterelle, shiitake and oyster mushrooms. The recipe was quick and easy and the mushrooms were really tasty. The mushroms were nice and caramelized and the lemon and parsley added a nice feeling of freshness and lightness. Move aside mushrooms sauteed in butter with dill I now have a new favorite way of cooking mushrooms!

Yep, mushrooms love garlic, onions and lemon.

The mixed 'shrooms always looks pretty and each bite is a subtley different taste.

It looks and sounds just delicious. I think mushrooms and shallots are especially good together and lemon sounds perfect with it.

This recipe brings me back to an classic fave at the cheesy/fun Italian-American restaurant I had my first waitressing job at years back. One of their best-selling appetizers was a grilled piece of italian bread topped with with a mushroom/sundried tomato mix sauteed in a marsala cream sauce. Similar (marsala instead of sherry), but yours sounds more sophisticated. I'm adding you to my blog roll! amy@ neverfull.wordpress.com

Just made this recipe with Hedgehogs, and i could of used leather instead of mushrooms. I could not taste any of the mushroom flavor as it was completely overpowered by the lemon and sherry. I even left the lemon zest out.

I like where you are going with this, but i would defiantly dial back on the sherry and lemon, and eliminate the zest. Maybe a tablespoon of sherry?
