Lobster and Crab Stuffed Garlic Mushrooms recipe

Preparation Time: 15 minutes | Cooking Time: 15 minutes

This yummy dinner party starter or party nibble is super quick and super easy. Mushrooms are stuffed with a mixture of breadcrumbs, crab meat, lobster meat, garlic and butter, then sprinkled with mozzarella and parmesan and baked until hot.


  • 8 flat cap field mushrooms
  • 175g melted butter
  • 450g lobster tail, cleaned
  • 175g crab meat, ready prepared or tinned, drained
  • 6 garlic cloves
  • 100g mozzarella cheese, grated
  • 2 tbsp. dried breadcrumbs
  • 2 tbsp. grated parmesan cheese
  • Salt and pepper


  1. Remove the stems from the mushrooms and dice. Dice the lobster tail and mince the garlic cloves. Shred the crab meat. In a bowl, combine the lobster, crab, garlic, breadcrumbs, salt, pepper, half the mozzarella and mushroom stems.

  2. Brush a baking tray with a little butter. Add the rest of the butter to the stuffing mix. Stir to combine. Pile the stuffing into the centre of the mushrooms, letting it overlap a little, then sprinkle with remaining mozzarella and parmesan cheese. Bake in a 200C oven for 10-12 minutes or until golden and cooked.

A little fresh parsley would be a welcome addition to the stuffing mix, or alternatively, you could skip the crab and use a little chopped and dried smoked bacon. Recipe serves 8.
