Spicy Crab Stuffed Mushrooms

Published by at 10:31 pm under appetizers,Cooking at Home

Another recipe we want to share that was a big hit at our Thanksgiving Potluck is the Spicy Crab Stuffed Mushrooms that was made by our friend Cecille. It’s adapted from Everyday is a Party Cookbook by Emeril Lagasse, but it’s changed up a bit to our preference. When you combine mushrooms with crab, jalapenos, and cheese, you really get a winning appetizer! Cecille remade these crab stuffed mushrooms again with us and we made sure that it’s captured for your viewing pleasure. Of course, it would be even better if you tried out the recipe for yourself! We provided the link below to Emeril’s recipe at Food Network, but you can also follow the directions in our photos if you’d like to try our version with a few changes.

We used 1 pound of king crab meat, which we pulsed in the food processor.

Other ingredients to add to the crab: 1 tsp chopped garlic, half red onion diced, 1/2 cup chopped jalapenos, 1/4 lb grated pepper jack cheese, and 2 ounces grated Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese. (Note: Emeril's recipe doesn't call for red onion, but we added it in for a little crunch).

To that mixture, add 1/4 cup Japanese mayonnaise, 1/2 tsp salt, 1 tsp Worcestershire sauce, and 1 tsp hot sauce. Mix well.

Instead of button mushrooms, we used Portobellos instead. Stuff each mushroom with a good amount of crab mixture and top with some more grated Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese. Bake in a 350-degree oven for 30 minutes.

Spicy Crab Stuffed Mushrooms are perfect if you want to please your family and friends. The creamy crab filling has a nice kick of heat which really pairs well with the mushroom flavor. I would be surprised if you have any leftovers!

    Great photo of the finished product (put that baby at the top – show it off!) This sounds like a fabulous combination of flavors – can’t go wrong with crab, cheese & jalapenos.

    I love the spicy crab stuffing, scrumptious mushrooms!

  16. Hannahon 10 Mar 2010 at 9:59 am

    This looks so good! I love jalapenos, and mushrooms always taste better after being cooked and their flavour thereby intensified…

  17. Lan-Anhon 10 Mar 2010 at 10:50 am

    yummy..can’t wait to get crabs to try this recipe too..after we tackle the salmon that is..

    these are wonderful, the jalapenos gives it more flavor.

  21. MaryMohon 10 Mar 2010 at 11:53 pm

    These look really delicious. I would love to try. It’s a great party food too. Thanks for sharing.

  22. Danielleon 11 Mar 2010 at 6:59 am

    These would be wonderful to serve for a party. I had sort of forgotten about stuffed mushrooms. I used to make all different ones years ago. Thanks for bringing them back into my brain.

  23. Jen @ My Kitchen Addictionon 11 Mar 2010 at 10:48 am

    Stuffed mushrooms are one of my favorite appetizers. These look fantastic!

  24. mycookinghuton 11 Mar 2010 at 12:41 pm

    This looks like a good idea!! Lovely!

  25. Andyon 11 Mar 2010 at 1:41 pm

    I love stuffed mushrooms at restaurants, so this recipe will come in handy! Can you toss the garlic, onions and peppers in the processor to save time or do you need to chop them so they don’t end up too fine?

  26. Tangled Noodleon 11 Mar 2010 at 9:00 pm

    I love my friends and family, but sorry – these would all be for me! (Alright, perhaps I’ll share with the husband . . . )

  27. thefoodaddictson 11 Mar 2010 at 10:29 pm

    Hey Andy – great question, and great point! It is definitely more efficient to throw everything in the food processor. I would probably do the crab separately from the other ingredients, then mix it in together. Thanks for pointing that out!

  34. Georgiaon 24 Mar 2010 at 7:24 am

    We seem to have the same taste buds – I made these for a get-together with friends just last month ( Yours look absolutely delicious, and I like that you used portabello mushrooms instead of the usual stuffing mushrooms!

    I really enjoy thumbing through all of your recipes, Krissy and Daniel! Food is such a great passion to be able to share together! Can’t wait to see more.
