Oh, the joys of being in San Diego in the winter! Fresh seafood every day of the week! These stuffed mushrooms accent the amazing variety of delicacies from the sea and are quick and easy to prepare. They make the most talked about appetizers at holiday gatherings or as a main course. I used portobello mushrooms but you could use any kind you like. Just make sure if they are smaller to have at least 12 and a nice deep cavity to fill with this delicious stuffing!
We have a favorite seafood cafe and market in San Diego we love to go to for dinner and then take home some of their seafood mix of fish ends, shrimp, calamari, scallops and crab to make these delicious treats. You can use your own combination of seafood to equal a cup. I added a little parmesan cheese but this is optional. Be inventive with your seasonings. I love using Old Bay and find it just brings out the unique flavors of the seafood without overpowering the sensational taste of the sea and the earthy taste of the portobello mushrooms.
Have fun creating and when your family or guests ask “where in the world did you get this recipe?” be sure to turn them on to my site! Hope you all have a very merry Christmas and a wonderful New Year.
