These Spanish Roasted Mushrooms with Smoked Paprika have an incredible texture & flavor, they´re easy to make and done within 25 minutes. This is the kind of tapas appetizer that really takes center stage on the appetizer table. They have a beautiful apperance and with one taste, probably the best mushrooms you will ever taste.
Since the mushrooms are roasted and not fried, they have an incredibly meaty texture to them. The sweet smoked paprika takes them to the next-level and gives these mushrooms that classic Spanish flavor. For this recipe I used button mushrooms, but you can also use baby portabella mushrooms.
So what is the difference between roasting mushrooms and sauteing them? When you roast mushrooms they hold their texture better than when you sauté them. This gives the mushrooms more of a meaty texture. Listen, I´m a sucker for sauté mushrooms and absolutely love them. But when you roast mushrooms you get a different texture and flavor.
