Description

A super-savory pan-fried mushroom side dish made with King Oyster mushrooms (also called King Trumpet mushrooms).

Ingredients

  • 8–12 ounces King Oyster mushrooms (also called King Trumpet mushrooms) *
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • kosher salt and black pepper
  • ¼ teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 2 large cloves garlic, thinly sliced
  • ½ cup parsley leaves
  • 1 lemon, zested
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter

Instructions

  • Preheat a large cast-iron skillet over medium-high for 5 minutes.
  • Slice large mushrooms in half lengthwise, leave smaller mushrooms whole.
  • Reduce heat to medium and add oil; swirl to coat pan. Arrange mushrooms in an even layer, as best you can, cut side down. Cook, without moving, for 3 minutes.

Notes

*If you have a really large cast-iron skillet (like 12-inches) you can use 12 ounce mushrooms. More surface area means all of the mushrooms can sear in an even layer. If you're using a 10-inch skillet or smaller, use 8 ounces of mushrooms. Or, sear the mushrooms in oil in batches before adding them all back to the skillet with the butter.
