If four people are going to share the lime butter garlic mushrooms as finger food or side dish, cook 500 grams of mushrooms. If it’s meant as a vegetarian main dish, double the recipe.
What kind of mushrooms is good for this dish? The meaty ones are especially good. Personally, I like button mushrooms for this dish. White or brown. Brown will make the dish look darker though.
Lime butter garlic mushrooms
- 6 cloves garlic
- 350 grams mushrooms
- 4 tablespoons butter - divided
- salt - to taste
- pepper - to taste
- 1 ½ tablespoons lime juice - I used kaffir lime
- chopped parsley - to garnish
- lime wedges - optional
- Peel and mince the garlic.
- Give the mushrooms a quick rinse and drain well. For best results, give them a few spins using a salad spinner. If the mushrooms are large, halve or quarter them.
- Melt half of the butter in a frying pan.
- Add the garlic to the hot butter and cook gently for about a minute.
- Add the mushrooms to the pan. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Cook over medium heat for six to seven minutes.
- Off the heat (the pan should still be hot at this point), add the lime juice and the rest of the butter. Swirl around until the butter melts.
- Scoop out the mushrooms and transfer to a bowl. Drizzle all the pan juices over them.
- Sprinkle chopped parsley on the mushrooms. Garnish with lime wedges, if desired.
- Serve the lime butter garlic mushrooms at once. Or let sit for a few minutes to infuse. Hot or at room temperature, they’re equally delicious!
