Step by step recipe


Stage 1 - 10 min.

Heat serving plates.

Trim stalks off 300 g mushrooms, brush to remove any earth, and rinse quickly under tap.

It's very important to not leave fresh mushrooms in water because their delicate taste will be diluted.

Stage 2 - 5 min.

Stage 3 - 5 min.

...and cook, stirring continuously (or "sauter" if you know how) for 2 minutes. This is the secret of this recipe: you should not cook the mushrooms more than 2 minutes to keep both flavour and texture at their best.

Remarks

It's even better if you can get several kinds of mushrooms. This time I have only used oyster mushrooms, but adding chanterelles would be great.

In which case I suggest you cook each type of mushroom separately, in the same way (2 minutes), and put in the strainer one after the other. In this way each kind keeps its characteristic flavour, and the mixing happens at the last minute.

No spring onions? Just use normal ones.

Instead of ordinary cured ham, if possible use those amazing Spanish hams with their great taste.
