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 mushrooms 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!
