Stuffed mushrooms with crayfish and prawns
My first really memorable stuffed mushrooms were from the Chicago Pizza Pie Factory, some 20 years ago, I guess. This is my version of those. I don't think they contained shellfish, but crayfish is my latest fave so it just has to be in this recipe.
- 85 g (3½ oz) butter
- 1 medium onion, peeled and finely chopped
- 1 clove garlic, peeled and crushed
- 110 g (4 oz) peeled prawns
- 180 g (6 oz) crayfish tails
- 50 g (2 oz) stale breadcrumbs
- 300 ml (1/2 pint) chicken stock
- 50 g (2 oz) grated Parmesan cheese
- 1 tablespoon freshly chopped parsley
- Preheat the oven to 175°C (350°F - gas 4)
- Brush the mushrooms clean, don't wash them.
- Remove the stems from the mushrooms and finely chop them.
- Melt 100g of butter fry the garlic until it colours, don't burn it.
- Add the onions and mushroom stems and fry for about 5 minutes.Add the chicken stock, bring to the boil, reduce the heat, add the prawns and crayfish tails and simmer for 1 minutes
- Take off the heat and add the remaining stuffing ingredients and mix well.
- Stuff the mushrooms with this mixture and lay them out on a greased oven tray.
- Melt 1 tablespoon of butter in a pan and whisk in the wine, pour this wine stock over the mushrooms and bake for 15 minutes.
