Additional Tips:

  • For a more intense flavor, you can marinate the mushroom scallops in the soy sauce and lemon juice mixture for 30 minutes before cooking.
  • You can also add other herbs and spices to the dish, such as thyme, rosemary, or paprika, to customize the flavor to your liking.
  • If you prefer a thicker sauce, you can mix a teaspoon of cornstarch with a tablespoon of water and add it to the skillet to thicken the sauce.
