Equipment

  • food processor (optional)
  • baking pan

Ingredients

  • 20-24 whole mini Bella mushrooms Two 8-oz containers, washed and stems removed.
  • 8 oz shrimp, peeled, deveined, and tail-off Size of shrimp does not matter
  • 2 green onions white end trimmed off
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1/2 jalapeno pepper or approx. 2 tbsp minced
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp pepper
  • 1/4 tsp crushed red pepper flakes optional
  • 4 oz cream cheese softened to room temperature
  • 3 tbsp shredded parmesan cheese

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Wash and remove stems from the whole mini bella mushrooms. Use a small spoon to remove the inside ribbing if needed to make more room for the stuffing. Arrange the mushrooms bottom side up on a parchment paper lined baking sheet.
  • Add shrimp, green onions, garlic cloves, jalapeno pepper, salt, pepper, and crushed red pepper flakes (optional) in a food processor. Pulse until everything is chopped small, making sure not to process too much (avoid the mixture becoming pureed).
  • Place the softened cream cheese into a small/medium bowl. Add the shrimp mixture and gently combine until no large chunks of cream cheese remain and everything is incorporated.
  • Spoon the mixture into the mushroom caps. A 1/2 tablespoon works well as a scoop, using more or less for the mushrooms depending on size. Fill the mushroom with a small heap on top, but avoid overfilling as the mixture may fall out as they bake.
  • Sprinkle each mushroom with fresh shredded parmesan cheese.
  • Bake at 350 for 15 minutes. Place under the broiler on high for 2-3 minutes until the tops are golden brown.

Notes

  1. If making ahead, finish everything except baking. These can be made 24 hours before baking. Just store in a covered container in the refrigerator and bake prior to serving.  
  2. If you do not have a food processor, just finely chop all ingredients that would be processed and mix together by hand. 
  3. To be sure the shrimp mixture is adequately cooked, use a cooking thermometer to verify the internal temperature is 145 deg F or over. The chunks of shrimp will appear pink in color when cooked through.
