Marinated Garlic Mushrooms | Champiñones a la Jerez Recipe

Spain is known for having some tasty dishes using mushrooms, and these Champiñones a la Jerez are no exception. This delicious tapas dish is basically Marinated Garlic Mushrooms. Loaded with so many flavors, easy to make and you can serve them at room temperature or even cold.

To make this dish, I used button mushrooms, just because the work they best with the marinade. However, you can use any type of mushrooms you want.

What flavors this dish is the Extra Virgin Olive Oil and the Sherry Vinegar. These two ingredients are what really make this dish. If you don´t have sherry vinegar, you can substitute for red wine vinegar. 

TIPS & TRICKS to make this Recipe: Instead of adding the garlic into the marinade, I cooked them for about 15 to 20 seconds with the mushrooms. This makes them aromatic and takes the dish to another level. Also make sure to cook your mushrooms on a medium heat not a medium-high heat. That way the flavor of the olive oil goes into each mushroom.

    This looks so good, but while I was making it I was confused by the ingredients. 12 mushrooms isn’t very much. Did you use extremely large button mushrooms? I had small button mushrooms so I used about 18 ounces (maybe 40 mushrooms in all), but I’m afraid I have the proportions off.

      I used just your standard sized white mushrooms, maybe the ones you used where smaller than normal, just double down on the rest of the ingredients if you are going to use more mushrooms 🙂 Much love

    Thank you again, SOAF. Cathy and I plan to make this very soon. Looks very affordable, because marinated mushrooms at store are expensive and also have lot of preservatives. This will be healthier and better for people. Glad you showed people how to do this. This is an incredible looking recipe. Again, supporting you on Patreon and always wish you more success …
