I am a huge seafood enthusiast and I was hoping some of you mommys who share the love of seafood wouldn't mind sharing some of your best recipes whether they are simple or time consuming. Anything from various fish to scallops, lobster, and crab!
Here is mine for crab stuffed mushrooms... I usually make during Holidays at family's or for a romantic dinner as a side to steak.
3 tablespoons butter, melted
24 fresh mushrooms
2 tablespoons butter
2 tablespoons minced green onions
1 teaspoon lemon juice
1 cup diced cooked crabmeat
1/2 cup soft bread crumbs
1 egg, beaten
3/4 cup shredded Monterey Jack cheese (can also substitute for swiss)
1/4 cup dry white wine
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Prepare a baking dish with 3 tablespoons butter.
Remove stems from mushrooms. Set aside caps. Finely chop stems.
Melt 2 tablespoons butter in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Stir in the chopped stems and green onions and cook until soft, about 3 minutes. Remove saucepan from heat. Stir in lemon juice, crabmeat, soft bread crumbs, egg, and 1/4 cup Monterey Jack cheese. Thoroughly blend the mixture.
Place mushroom caps in the buttered pan, and stir until caps are coated with the butter. Arrange caps cavity side up, and stuff cavities generously with the green onion and crabmeat mixture. Top with remaining Monterey Jack cheese. Pour wine into the pan around the mushrooms.
Bake uncovered in the preheated oven 15 to 20 minutes, until cheese is melted and lightly browned.
