Sautéed Fresh Chanterelles

Sautéed Fresh Chanterelles
Why try to improve on perfection?

This simple recipe is designed to do nothing more than enhance the already naturally good flavor of chanterelles. This is my favorite kind of recipe: it's very easy to prepare, but it tastes like a rare gourmet treat.

Serve these glorious chanterelles with fish, poultry, grilled meats or vegetables - or just on their own.

1 lb fresh Chanterelle mushrooms
2 tablespoons unsalted butter
1 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
1 garlic clove, minced very fine
1/4 cup dry white wine
3 tablespoons coarsely chopped fresh parsley (flat-leafed variety)
1 tsp lemon juice, or to taste



Slice the chanterelles lengthwise.

In a large skillet, melt butter with the olive oil over a moderately high heat. Add the garlic and sauté briefly, making sure that the garlic does not brown.

Add the mushrooms and sauté, stirring, until they just begin to soften, about 2 minutes.

Add the wine and cook until the liquid is evaporated and the mushrooms are tender, about 5 minutes.


In a bowl, toss the mushrooms with the parsley and lemon juice.
