  • 12 ounces cremini mushrooms, or a mix of cremini and oyster mushrooms
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons white-wine vinegar
  • 3 tablespoons coarsely chopped fresh oregano
  • 6 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 3/4 teaspoon coarse salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon freshly ground pepper


  1. Trim stems from cremini (break apart oyster mushroom clusters, if using). Put mushrooms in a medium bowl, and set aside.

  2. Whisk together lemon juice, vinegar, and oregano in a medium bowl. Whisk in oil in a slow, steady stream; whisk until mixture is emulsified. Whisk in the salt and pepper. Pour marinade over mushrooms, and let stand at room temperature, stirring occasionally, at least 20 minutes; if desired, refrigerate mushrooms in an airtight container overnight. Serve at room temperature.
