(Stuffed mushroom with shrimp)
Pan-fry stuffed mushroom with shrimp is delicious Khmer country food. Back home, seafood is abundant and the poor eat mainly seafood.
I was told stuffed mushroom with shrimp was my late paternal grandfather favorite appetizer. On *Bon Pchum Ben* Ancestors memorial day or on Khmer religious holidays my father always makes stuffed mushroom with shrimp for foods offerings to our ancestors.
