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!

  1. Could I fix a large batch of these and keep the parsley off I would then package and freeze until I would like to have them again. After defrosting I would heat up and add fresh parsley. I am single and live in a motorhome YEAH so I cook once and eat several times from each batch of food. That way I am not cooking every day and I have a variety of foods to choose from. This would also be easy to pull one or two packages for company. I prefer to eat tapa style and have 3 or 4 items I can make a meal of. Thanks.

    1. Ooh, this looks tasty, I’m definately trying it.

      What is that salami wrapped arugula with nuts? It looks the nuts.

      1. Hi Chris, that one is very thin slices of smoked roasted beef (from the delicatessen) and then you spread a little seasoned cream cheese on the beef, add some arugula, and then roll the beef up into cigar-shaped rolls. Pan roast some pine nuts and simply sprinkle over the rolls. It’s really easy to make and tastes amazing!
        Hope that helps!
        If you can’t get smoked roasted beef slices, just use normal, but get as thin as possible so they roll up easily. Think of pancetta and how thin that is, then you’re on the right track!

  2. Ugh, that picture of the whole table just made my mouth water. I’m totally doing this next time my friends come over. I love mushrooms and this recipe sounds delicious. Thank you for posting!
