Hearty portobello mushroom caps are cleaned, with the stems and gills removed and filled with an onion-garlic-breadcrumbs-shrimp mixture that’s been flavored with lemon juice and basil and an egg to help bind everything together into happy goodness. We stuffed the mushroom caps and let them hang out for a quick 15 minutes in the oven covered with parmesan cheese where all that magic happens and these stuffed mushroom caps become warm, melty, savory deliciousness. I think this is going to be my favorite summer meal of 2015.

Oh my god. These are definitely the best stuffed mushrooms that I’ve made in a LONG time.

What I love most about this recipe is that it’s totally weeknight friendly. Ya-huh! A quick 15 minutes of hands on time and another 15 minutes in the oven while you tidy up the 2 dishes it took you to put this meal together. LOVE those kinds of meals. LESS Dishes = Happier Cook. <– Isn’t that always true?

Also, this meal is totally light and bikini friendly. I really feel like I need to be sitting on a beach patio restaurant that’s totally fresco-style everything with a cold glass of mint lemonade, the sun setting in the background and the sounds of waves crashing on shore. Can we all agree that food that transports you to beachy places is definitely amazing?

It’s just 30 minutes way with these stuffed portobello mushrooms.

We’re using the stems from the portobello mushrooms along with a little onion and garlic and letting it sweat up in a couple tablespoons of butter. Get ready for it to smell like a little piece of heaven in your kitchen.

Once they’re done, add in the chopped shrimp, breadcrumbs, a beaten egg, and lemon juice. Oh and a pinch of red pepper flakes because that’s how we do things here on LSJ. For the hubs and I, a hint of spice is mandatory. Let it all heat up for a quick minute or two until the shrimp are cooked through and opaque.

Place that mixture inside the portobello caps and top with a liberal sprinkle of parmesan. Pop them in the oven for 15 minutes and when they’re done, top with a couple additional cooked shrimp, chopped parsley, and basil.

I served mine with a side salad and a wedge of lemon. The lightest most refreshing meal you’ve ever had. For reals.

Coastal cuisine is my favorite kind of food to serve up during the summertime. I love adding lemon and basil to my seafood dishes because it makes it so light and refreshing. These shrimp stuffed portobello mushrooms are hearty and filling because of the portobellos and yet still light and flavorful with that Louisiana shrimp and the addition of lemon juice and basil.

You totally need these in your life.
