Stage 1 - 15 min.

Prepare 750 g mushrooms: trim off the dirty stalk ends, brush the caps rapidly under running water, then dry and cut into 4 lengthways.

Stage 2 - 10 min.

Pour 4 tablespoons olive oil into a large frying pan on high heat. When good and hot, add the mushrooms.

It is important not to add any salt. Sauté until lightly browned, stirring from time to time.

Stage 3 - 1 min.

Add 4 tablespoons soy sauce all at once...

Stage 4 - 2 min.

...and coat the mushrooms by stirring frequently until the soy sauce has completely evaporated.

This will leave the mushrooms richly coloured and shiny: they are now glazed or "lacquered".

Stage 5 - 1 min.

Turn off the heat, add the chopped parsley and squeeze the juice of ½ lemon over the mushrooms. Stir one last time.

Stage 6

Serve on a bed of plain white rice or pilau.
For a more distinctive flavour, add the zest of the lemon at the same time as the juice, or even 2 tablespoons of rice vinegar.

Similarly, you can use lime instead of lemon and replace the parsley with lemon balm.
1 or 2 days in the fridge, covered with plastic film.
