Stuffed mushrooms are always a great option. Not only are they delicious but super easy to make. Shrimp stuffed mushrooms are no different. You may remember my original stuffed mushrooms recipe loaded with cream cheese but let’s add some meat in there. Here we chopped up the shrimp into a light creamy sauce that doesn’t overpower the flavors of the shrimp. Yet, brings a delightful cream flavor to the entire recipe. Follow the step by step instructions and I’ll walk you through it.

Ingredients Needed For Mushrooms

  • Mushrooms
  • Shrimp peeled & deveined
  • Cream cheese
  • Mayo
  • Salt & pepper
  • Breadcrumbs

How To Make Shrimp Stuffed Mushrooms

First, clean the mushrooms. They come out the packages dirty and you don’t want that in your food. Next, pull the stems out.

I season my mushrooms with a little of olive oil, salt and pepper but you don’t have to. This is an added step I won’t include below but feel free to try it out. The mushrooms are now ready to be stuffed.

Take the shrimp and chop it up in chunks. Doesn’t have to be super fine but remember the mushrooms are small unless you decided to do portobellos.

Next, chop two stalks of green onion. In a small bowl cream together cream cheese, sour cream, grated parmesan and mayo.

In a frying pan on medium high heat add oil, then toss in shrimp. Cook the shrimp about two minutes then add in the green onion as well. When shrimp are pink and almost done toss in some butter then remove from pan.

Drain excess oil from shrimp and onion. Then, toss the shrimp and onion into the bowl where your cream cheese mix is. Fold all the ingredients together. Take a spoon and spoon the stuffing for the shrimp stuffed mushrooms.

Place in oven for 20 minutes. Remove then allow to cool and serve.

How Do You Keep Stuffed Mushrooms From Getting Soggy

So, you have baked your mushrooms and they are full of water. The reason for this is that mushrooms hold a ton of water. It doesn’t come from you washing them. If you stuck them in the oven without washing you’d get the same results. As they cook they will release that water but control some of this by cooking at a high temperature for a short amount of time.

Can I Use Any Mushroom

Yes, you can! I used baby bellas in this recipe but white mushrooms work or even the large portobello if you want to make an entire dish out of it.

Helpful Recipe Tips

  • Water will release from the mushrooms so don’t be alarmed. This is why they look withered after they have softened.
  • Sub shrimp for crabmeat for a different experience with the recipe.
  • For keto, skip the breadcrumbs.

Ingredients
 

  • 8 ounce peeled & deviened shrimp
  • 8 ounce mushrooms (I used baby bellas)
  • 3 ounce cream cheese
  • 2 teaspoon mayo

  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 tablespoon italian breadcrumbs
  • 1 tablespoon grated parmesan cheese (sub for 1TB breadcrumbs)
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter

Instructions
 

  • Clean mushrooms and remove mushroom stems. Discard stems I don't use those.
  • Flip clean mushrooms over, drizzle with oil and lightly season with salt and pepper. Allow them to sit in baking pan while you make the stuffing.
  • Preheat oven to 400°F
  • Chop up shrimp into small pieces before cooking, don't leave them whole.
  • On a high heat frying pan add oil then add shrimp and minced garlic. Season with salt and pepper and cook shrimp until pink then turn off heat. Drain excess oil
  • Add shrimp to a bowl then add cream cheese, mayo, lemon juice now taste to see if any salt and pepper is needed.
  • Microwave 1TB of butter and mix breadcrumbs, parmesan cheese and that melted butter together. You can skip the parmesan cheese and just add another tablespoon of breadcrumbs or vice versa. Note, only the breadcrumbs give a crispy crunch.
  • Spoon shrimp into each mushroom. Now take breadcrumb topping and sprinkle over each mushroom, some may be left. My pack had 9 so this will vary. Place in preheated oven for 20 minutes.Remove then allow to cool
