Crawfish Stuffed Mushrooms RECIPE

This recipe was contributed by Shirley Cline.

Shirley was a great inspiration when I first started working on the idea of creating a recipe and cooking web site. Not only did she encourage me but she also supplied a great many recipes and other pieces which are featured throughout the site. Her great achievement was to teach me to cook risotto over the internet!

Although I never had the chance to meet Shirley, or even talk to her, I regarded her as a good friend. It was with great sadness that I learnt that she passed away in Autumn 2004 and that there would be no more emails. I think she will be sadly missed by a lot of people like me to whom she gave such pleasure with the sharing or her recipes. The pleasure my children have had from her recipe for Strawberries with Balsamic Vinegar and Mint - not to mention the fights for seconds - has been a joy to behold.

Ingredients

3 lbs. fresh mushrooms (on large side)
1 cup onion, minced
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 lb. crawfish tails
1/4 cup chopped green onion
1/8 cup chopped parsley
1/2 cup dry white wine
Parmesan cheese to taste
Whipping cream, enough to make a thick sauce
Season-All to taste
Italian bread crumbs, enough to hold ingredients together

Method

  • Wash and clean mushrooms, dry on paper towel. Remove the stems and set aside.
  • Place the mushroom caps in a well-buttered baking dish. Baste caps with butter and set aside.
  • Melt remaining butter in skillet and saute onion, garlic and chopped mushrooms stems for 10 minutes.
  • Add the crawfish, green onion, and parsley. Simmer for 8 minutes.
  • Add wine, cheese, cream, and seasoning. Simmer for 3 minutes.
  • Blend in the bread crumbs. 
  • Remove from heat.
  • Stuff mushrooms with mixture.
  • Top with extra cheese.
  • Bake at 350°F  for 15 minutes or until golden brown.
  • Serve HOT

Note: 

When I can't get the crawfish tails, I use lobster tails (1 lb) and chop them in small pieces about the size of crawfish tails. I would imagine chopped shrimp would do just as well.
