5. Garlic Butter Mushroom Scallops

Mushrooms are a must for me when it comes to a satisfying roast meal, and I’ve never quite understood people who don’t like mushrooms at all. Pan-fried mushrooms bring out their delicious natural umami and with their soft texture and delicious bite they are the perfect addition to a tasty roast. For these Garlic Butter Mushroom Scallops from Romy London I use king oyster mushrooms. With their thick stems, they are ideal for cutting and carving, and they wonderfully absorb the aromas of garlic and thyme.
