  • Mix the flour with a bit of sea salt and freshly cracked pepper, to taste then lightly dredge the polenta rounds in the seasoned flour. 
  • Add the dredged polenta rounds to the hot pan and cook for 2-3 minutes, or until golden brown. Flip over and cook the other side for 2-3 minutes, or until golden brown. Drain on a paper towel to remove excess grease.

  • Add the minced garlic and a splash of vinegar, to taste, then cook, stirring constantly, for 1 minute. Season with sea salt and freshly cracked pepper, to taste. Remove from the heat.
  • Place the polenta slices on the serving plate and top with a spoonful of garlic butter mushrooms then some freshly chopped parsley.
  • Add shaved parmesan to the top and serve immediately. Enjoy.
