Crab-Stuffed Mushrooms Recipe

Crab-stuffed mushrooms are an appetizer fit for any finger-food occasion! Mushrooms have a natural umami flavor, which creates a savory, rich taste that contrasts nicely with the light taste of crab. Bake these mushrooms in the oven for crispy bites that will be sure to please all those who inhale them!

Crab-Stuffed Mushrooms

When purchasing crab, the first choice of crab would be a fresh-caught crab. Crab is a rich source of minerals like magnesium, phosphorus, zinc, and copper. It’s also high in vitamins like B12 and folate. A well-sourced crab will be the most nutrient-dense choice and will taste the best, too.

If possible, try to stay clear of imitation crab meat — also known as surimi, which means “ground meat”. Imitation crab is often ground-up white fish mixed with food starch, salt, MSG, and other flavorings.

Looking to cook up a few appetizers alongside this one? Try making some sweet potato bites with guacamole or oven-baked zucchini fritters. If you want to serve this as a side, use larger mushrooms and stuff them with more crab!
