These Spanish Mushrooms with Onions a la Pimentón, are seriously good. They´re packed with so many great textures & flavors, above & beyond easy to make and done in under 30 minutes. Serve them as a tapas appetizer or even as a side dish.
This dish is basically mushrooms that you sear in olive oil, then add in some onions and finally some sweet smoked Spanish paprika. So simple, yet so flavorful. Truly, one of the best ways to enjoy mushrooms.
To make this recipe, I used button mushrooms, but you can use any mushrooms you like. However, button mushrooms are ideal here, as their mild flavor easily absorbs the rest of the flavors and they don´t over-power the dish.
TIPS & TRICKS to Make this Recipe: The secret to this dish, is the way the mushrooms are cooked. All in a single layer for 2 minutes per side without mixing on a medium-high heat. This gives them a beautiful crusty sear, which is what takes this dish to the next-level.
