  • 24 ounces about 24 medium-sized cremini mushrooms
  • 2 tablespoons melted ghee or fat of choice
  • 8 ounces fresh or frozen shrimp
  • ¼  cup scallions about 2 scallions, roughly chopped
  • ¼  cup packed cilantro
  • 2 uncooked bacon slices diced (about ⅓ cup)
  • 1 tablespoon jalapeño pepper diced small
  • 1 teaspoon Paleo-friendly fish sauce or coconut aminos
  • Diamond Crystal brand kosher salt
  • Freshly-ground black pepper


  • Heat the oven to 450°F with the rack in the middle. While the oven is getting hot, clean your cremini mushrooms and remove the stems.
  • Place the mushrooms on a foil- or parchment-lined baking sheet, and brush them with melted ghee. Roast the mushrooms, gill-side down, for 12 minutes.
  • Flip over the mushrooms, and roast for 5 to 10 minutes more, or until the liquid released by the mushrooms has evaporated.
  • While the mushrooms are in the oven, de-vein and remove the tails from the thawed shrimp, and chop them into medium-sized pieces. Toss the shrimp, scallions, cilantro, bacon, jalapeño, and fish sauce into the work bowl of a food processor. 
  • Pulse the ingredients for the filling until a coarsely-chopped mixture develops. The filling should be the consistency of a sticky, chunky paste. To taste for seasoning, form a tiny patty and fry it up and eat it. Add extra salt and pepper to the stuffing if needed.
  • Scoop out the filling with a spoon or small disher, and fill each cooked mushroom with the shrimp paste.
  • Return the mushrooms to the oven for 8 to 10 minutes, or until the shrimp mixture has set. Transfer the mushrooms to a plate and serve immediately.
