Crusted Seafood Mushroom Caps/#Foodie Extravaganza

We are a house divided when it comes to mushrooms. My husband is a lover of the fab fungi, but I absolutely am not. However, I do love cooking my husbands favorite foods, and that is how these Crusted Seafood Mushroom Caps came to be. You start with a base of button mushrooms, sauteed in butter until golden brown, then stuffed with a mix of cream cheese, crab, green onion, and Queso, and topped with a tempura battered shrimp. You won't be disappointed!
