Begin by heating a cast iron pan until hot
When the pan is hot, add the mushrooms, season with salt, and cook them until they've wilted, lighlty browned, and released water. Add the butter to the pan with a little oil, if the pan gets dry, add a little more.
Add the shallots, salt, then the tarragon and cook for a minute or two to take the "raw" flavor of them away, then double check the seasoning for salt, adjust as needed, and serve.
