Prep Time: 10 mins. | Cook Time: 8 mins.


1 package of white button mushrooms (200g)
10-15 cooked shrimp (I used frozen)
2 cloves of garlic (minced)
1/8th tsp dried oregano
1 Tbsp Balsamic vinegar
1 Tbsp Canola oil
1 tsp butter (melted)
Pinch of garlic powder (optional)


1. Wipe mushrooms with a damp cloth and pat dry.
2. Add butter, garlic, oil, balsamic vinegar, oregano, and garlic powder in a small bowl. Mix well.
3. Place mixture on a frying pan on medium heat. Add whole mushrooms to pan and sauté (with a cover) for about 5 minutes or until cooked. Remove from pan and set aside.
4. Add shrimp to the same pan and leave on until cooked or warmed up (about 2-3 minutes).
5. Make a mushroom shrimp sandwich! Cut a mushroom in half and put the shrimp in the middle. Use a toothpick to keep them together.
Optional: Serve with melted butter and dried oregano or a reduced balsamic vinegar sauce.
