Shrimp de Jonghe Stuffed Mushrooms

When I was younger my family had a tradition of staying home on New Year’s Eve. My Grandparents would come over and my Mom would cook a fancy meal. Usually crab legs, steak, and shrimp de Jonghe. As usual, we ate well. Even at a young age, I was a big fan of crab legs. I’ve got expensive taste in food, what can I say? I think once in my life I did one of those bar packages for New Year’s Eve and the whole night I was wishing that I had just stayed home and eaten crab legs and shrimp de Jonghe with my parents. 

A few weeks ago I went to a wedding at the Brookfield zoo. The ceremony was outside but the cocktail hour was inside the polar bear enclosure. We were able to watch the polar bear swimming around whilst eating tasty appetizers. One of the appetizers was crab stuffed mushrooms. They were really good so I decided to try something similar. Instead of using crab I decided to use shrimp and make shrimp de Jonghe stuffed mushrooms.

Do you guys even know what shrimp de Jonghe is? Obviously, I grew up with this dish but when I looked it up on wikipedia I found out that it is a Chicago specialty. So maybe this is strictly a regional thing? Basically, shrimp de Jonghe is shrimp with a breadcrumb, garlic, white wine topping. Completely delicious. I changed it up by stuffing it into a mushroom, and it was even more delicious!
