Our tempting East-meets-West Crab Stuffed Mushrooms get their flavorful crunch from the popular Asian panko bread crumbs. It's a dish worthy of Confucius himself!

What You'll Need

  • 1 pound large fresh mushrooms
  • 4 tablespoons butter, divided
  • 1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons panko bread crumbs
  • 1/2 cup shredded fresh, canned or imitation crabmeat
  • 1/4 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon black pepper

What to Do

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Gently clean mushrooms by wiping them with a damp paper towel. Remove stems from 3/4 pound of the firmest mushrooms; set aside caps.
  2. Finely chop mushroom stems and remaining 1/4 pound whole mushrooms.
  3. In a large skillet, melt 3 tablespoons butter over medium heat. Add chopped mushrooms and cook 4 to 5 minutes, or until tender.
  4. Remove from heat and add 1/4 cup panko bread crumbs, the shredded crab, onion powder, salt and pepper; mix well.
  5. Using a teaspoon, stuff mushroom caps with stuffing mixture. Place on an ungreased rimmed baking sheet.
  6. In a small bowl, combine remaining 2 tablespoons panko bread crumbs and 1 tablespoon melted butter; sprinkle evenly over tops of mushroom caps and bake 15 to 18 minutes, or until heated through.

Very few of us in my family like mushrooms but once in awhile we mushroom lovers need to treat ourselves. These mushrooms stuffed with crab filling we're perfect. I used imitation crab because that's all my budget could afford but they were still quite delicious.

I also sautee'chopped up celery,onions,and peppers,along with the chopped stems. I use about 12 oz. of real King Crab,add1/2 cup Parmesan cheese, Garlic powder,salt,oregano,and parsley. 1/2 cup water, mix well and put in 400 D. oven for 15 min. Then remove,top each cap with a slice of cheddar cheese and put back in oven until cheese is melted over top. OOOhhhh, It's better than good!!

Is it okay if i use regular bread crumbs.

What are and where do you purchase "panko" bread crumbs? Thank you. Jars

Panko is a Japanese name and is available in most grocery stores. It's just a different form of breading....a bit coarser.
