Cover the entire mixture and let it stand for approximately twenty minutes, stirring once in a while.
You’re almost ready to serve the recipe when the side dish is ready. In a non-stick skillet, heat a small amount of oil. Add shallots and garlic, stirring occasionally, until they begin to brown. Then add the mushrooms, giving them time to get tender. After about three minutes, turn the stove down low. Cover the skillet, and let the cooked mushrooms sit and warm up to approximately ten minutes.
When the fresh mushrooms are warm enough, add the remaining ingredients to the Red Lobster Stuffed Mushroom recipe, except for the seafood if you are using shrimp, lobster meat or scallops.
