  • 600 g button mushrooms 1.3 lbs - whole (see notes)
  • 3 tbsp salted butter
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 tbsp finely chopped fresh parsley
  • 4 garlic cloves crushed/minced
  • 1 tbsp fresh lemon juice optional
  • salt and pepper to taste


  • In a large frying pan, heat butter (3 tbsp) and olive oil (1 tbsp) over medium high heat.
  • Add mushrooms (600g/1.3 lbs) to pan and mix to coat them in the butter/oil mixture.
  • Spread mushrooms out on the base of the pan in a flat, even layer as best you can. Allow to fry for 8-9 minutes without moving.
  • Flip the mushrooms over one by one, and them let them fry (again without moving) for a further 8-9 minutes.
  • Add crushed garlic (4 cloves) and parsley (2 tbsp) to pan, mixing to coat and fry for another minute.
  • Add lemon juice (1 tbsp) to pan if using, then give it all a mix. Add salt and pepper to taste and serve immediately.


I have used button mushrooms, these are the most common variety of mushrooms found in most Australian supermarkets. From some research, I think a US equivalent would be cremini mushrooms.
