  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 pound whole mushrooms cremini or white


  • Heat olive oil in skillet to medium-high heat. The oil should be sizzling hot.
  • Clean the mushrooms and trim if needed. Put in the hot pan cap side down and don't touch them.
  • After 2-3 minutes flip the mushrooms over and cook for another 2-3 minutes. Season with salt and pepper to taste.


The same principle applies to sliced mushrooms. They should be cooked fairly quickly at a high temperature.
