Lobster Stuffed Mushrooms (Lobster Recipe)

Tender, baked mushrooms are stuffed with a buttery lobster filling in this delicious appetizer recipe.

Lobster Stuffed Mushrooms

But whereas the lobster of my childhood was always served in the shell with clarified butter on the side, I love using lobster in innovative ways — because it’s so good in so many dishes from Lobster Risotto to Lobster Salad.

It’s also heavenly in this recipe for Lobster Stuffed Mushrooms.

These stuffed mushrooms take less than 20 minutes to whip up — but your dinner guests will never need to know that. Seriously, if you are looking for an easy, but impressive, lobster recipe, this is what you want to make.

Now, a hint: to make this truly easy, look for precooked lobster from your local fishmonger. My favorite grocery store always sells little tubs of lobster that’s already been plucked from the shell. Our local seafood shop sells freshly cooked lobster meat by the pound. You can also purchase already cooked lobsters as well.

Cooked lobster meat makes these a breeze to whip up.

And besides … who can say no to amazingly buttery Lobster Stuffed Mushrooms?

One more thing: if you happen to have any extra filling, it’s absolutely delicious combined with a little extra butter and tossed with pasta.

Thanks for the recipe! Since I hate to waste, when I cooked the onions, I added chopped mushroom stems. It was perfect!

Thanks again for the recipe. I decided to follow your recipe exactly, using lobster instead of crab. I am making it now for tomorrow's Christmas dinner. I will let you know how it comes out. I am so glad my brother-in-law recommended your recipe on facebook. Diane

Can you substitute crab meat for the lobster?

Hi there, I've never made these with crab meat, so I can't say how it would impact the flavor, texture or final product. Sorry I can't be of more help!
