Pan Fried Oyster Mushrooms
1 pound Oyster mushrooms, cleaned and trimmed
2 tablespoons olive oil or butter
2 cloves garlic, minced
Salt and pepper to taste
Fresh lemon wedges for serving
Chopped fresh herbs (such as parsley or thyme) for garnish (optional)
Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat and add the olive oil or butter.
Once the oil/butter is hot, add the minced garlic and sauté for about 1 minute until fragrant.
Add the Oyster mushrooms to the skillet, spreading them out in a single layer.
Allow the mushrooms to cook undisturbed for 3-4 minutes until they develop a golden-brown crust on the bottom.
Flip the mushrooms over and continue to cook for an additional 3-4 minutes until the other side is also golden brown and the mushrooms are tender.
Season the mushrooms with salt and pepper to taste.
Remove the pan from heat and transfer the pan-fried mushrooms to a serving dish.
Squeeze fresh lemon juice over the mushrooms and garnish with chopped fresh herbs if desired.
Serve the Pan Fried Oyster Mushrooms immediately while they are still warm.
