  • Mushrooms – common white mushrooms work best. Flat mushrooms like portobello mushrooms would be difficult to stuff because the cap of the mushroom is too shallow.
  • Crab Meat – canned crab meat. Can also use fresh crab meat if preferred.
  • Green Onions – freshly chopped scallions.
  • Mayonnaise – use Japanese Kewpie Mayo. Can substitute with regular mayo but will alter flavor.
  • Miso – awase brown Miso works best.
  • Parmesan Cheese – grated.
  • Black Pepper – ground.
  • Sriracha – Asian style chill sauce.

🦀 Canned Crab Meat Note

For the best quality crab meat, opt for Jumbo Lump or Premium varieties. These options ensure a superior taste and texture in your dish.

 🥢 Miso Note

You have three miso paste options: White Miso, which is mild and sweet; Red Miso, known for its robust and salty flavor; and Brown Miso, or Awase Miso, offering a balanced blend of salty, sweet, and umami. We recommend using Red Miso or Brown Miso for this recipe.

🥄 Stuffing Pro Tip

When it comes to stuffing mushrooms, a key pro tip is to Avoid Overfilling them. Leaving some room for the mushroom’s natural water to seep out during baking ensures a balanced texture and prevents them from becoming soggy.

Step 4 Place mushroom with cap side down on a baking sheet or oven pan and bake at 350F for 10-12 minutes. Top with freshly chopped green onions.

Pairing Recommendations
