Garlicky Sautéed Mushrooms

Leigh Beisch
Total time 30 mins
Yield Makes 4 to 6 servings
When these Garlicky Sautéed Mushrooms are cooked, they release a lot of liquid. Using high heat evaporates the juices, allowing the mushrooms to brown and develop flavor.


  • 1 pound wild or cultivated mushrooms
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons minced garlic
  • 1 tablespoon chopped parsley
  • Coarse sea salt, preferably fleur de sel

How to Make It

  1. Trim stems off cleaned mushrooms and cut caps into bite-size pieces. Very small mushrooms can be left whole.

  2. Set a 10- to 12-in. frying pan over high heat. When hot, add olive oil, swirl to coat bottom, and add mushrooms. Sprinkle with salt and cook over high heat, stirring, until mushrooms stop giving off liquid and start to brown.

  3. Add garlic and cook, stirring, 2 to 3 minutes. Remove from heat; stir in parsley. Serve on a platter and season with sea salt.
