This is easy and quick to make and fantastic flavors.
Also great as a side dish! This dish is often served as part of a Tapas meal, alongside many other dishes.
Enjoy with a glass of Sherry or a cold beer, serve with some warm crusty bread to mop up the juices!
The idea of tapas is the dishes need to be small, bite-size pieces, served in small bowls.
Everyone helps themselves to whatever they like.
You will often get small forks or toothpicks to eat with, so you do need to make sure you cut the mushrooms into small pieces, say quarter size, so people can pick them up easily with a toothpick or fork.
One of the key ingredients for Champinones al ajillo, or Spanish garlic Mushrooms, is the dry sherry used during cooking.
The alcohol is cooked off so it is child-friendly. However, the flavor the sherry adds to the mushrooms is out of this world!
It gives the mushrooms a slightly sweet flavor, and together with the garlic, it makes for a wonderful combination.
So let's get straight to the recipe and see how we make our Champinones Al Ajillo, Spanish Garlic Mushrooms. Please do enjoy!
10 Large Button Mushrooms, quartered 5 Cloves Garlic, minced 3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil 1 tablespoon lemon juice 2 tablespoons dry sherry ¼ Teaspoon Spanish Paprika Ground Black Pepper and Sea Salt to season ¼ - ½ Teaspoon dried chili flakes (optional to suit) 1 Tablespoon Fresh, chopped flat-leaf parsley
