These mushrooms make a wonderful side dish for just about anything.

Active time: 20 min
Start to finish: 20 min

1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
1/2 tablespoon soy sauce
1 teaspoon sugar
2 tablespoons olive oil
10 oz mushrooms, any variety, quartered (shiitakes, oysters and ports should be stemmed also)
1 tablespoon unsalted butter
1 garlic clove, chopped

Stir together lemon juice, soy sauce, and sugar. Heat a 12-inch heavy skillet over moderately high heat until very hot. Add oil, then sauté mushrooms, stirring, until juices from the mushroom are released and evaporate and mushrooms turn a golden brown, about 5 minutes. Add butter and garlic and sauté, stirring, until butter is absorbed. Add lemon mixture to mushrooms, stirring until sauce is absorbed.
