Shrimp, Asparagus, Crab Stuffed Mushrooms & Harvest Grains Blend!
Shrimp, Asparagus, Crab Stuffed Mushrooms & Harvest Grains Blend
I have not posted a good recipe in a while, therefore I felt it was time to do it todayJ. Do not be overwhelmed by my description this is an easy recipe.
The most labor intensive part of this meal is the Crab Stuffed Mushrooms; once you make the stuffing the rest is fast and convenient. I recommend large mushrooms for easier stuffing (Large Crimini or baby Portabella mushrooms are the easiest way to make it) If you look at my pictures you see I did not have any, I just used plain brown mushrooms (takes more mushrooms and harder to stuff)
1. Can of Crabmeat from Trader Joe’s (if you do not have fresh crab meat about 4-5 ounces)
2. 2 table spoon of butter (unsalted)
3. 3-4 table spoon of minced red bell pepper minced
4. About 2 table spoon of soy sauce (if none available use a bit of salt to taste)
5. Two or three table spoon of shredded parmesan cheese or any other flavor full hard cheese
6. If you like a kick, add a dash of hot sauce of your favorite sauces (I like Siracha Chilli sauce aka the rooster of Asian origin or if I want to make it milder than Tapatio of Mexican origin hot sauce) now it this is too spicy for you than black pepper to your liking)
7. Garlic & Onion sautéed in extra virgin olive oil (one or two cloves of garlic and about a third of a small onion also minced)
Sautee the garlic, onions and red bell pepper add the butter soy sauce and crab meat. Wilted it add the shredded cheese mix together all the ingredients and Stuff the mushrooms with it. If it is too “loose” for you than add bread crumbs (Italian flavored, plain or panko bread crumb whatever you like or have at home)
Take Asparagus clean & place it on a baking sheet add the stuffed mushrooms, you will have left over stuffing drizzle over the asparagus and the Mushrooms, bake for about 15-25 minutes whatever your taste is for level of crunchiness of the vegetables. Keep in mind after 15 minutes you need to watch and know how you like your food ( I like it around the 12-15 minutes )
What is Harvest Grains Blend? Trader Joe’s sells it in a bag, but if you do not have TJ’s near you, then you can make it yourself. It consists of: 1. Israeli Style Couscous, (about 70 per cent), Orzo (about 10 per cent) baby garbanzo beans (10 per cent) and Red Quinoa (10 per cent) I do not use their recipe when I make it. Instead of water, I use Chicken Stock for better flavor. I use the entire package, which is about 1 lb. 3.5 cups of Chicken Stock, 2 to 3 tablespoon of unsalted butter once it boils I add the bag (1 lb) bring it to boil, then reduce heat and simmer covered for about 10 minutes. Remove from heat and serve immediately or shortly after. —-hence I make the other items first and I try to time it so the entire meal comes together at the same time.( If you do not have Harvest Grain or you think this is too much work to make it from scratch then make rice and put the shrimp over a bed of rice just as good)
While the Asparagus & Mushrooms are baking and the Harvest grain is cooking I sauté the Shrimp. There will be left over garlic and onions which I sauté in Extra Virgin Olive Oil and then I add some of the left over red peppers and then add the Shrimp of course I like to add Lemon Juice & Soy Sauce. While this is cooking, I take Italian Parsley chop it for flavor and decoration on the meal.
As Julia Child would have said Bon Appetite!
