Number of Servings: 5

Ingredients

    4 tbsp Butter, unsalted
    1/2 lb oyster or shiitake mushrooms (cut to bite size)
    1/3 cup minced shallot
    2 tbsp. flour
    1 1/2 cup clam stock
    1 cup milk (nutritional info done with 2%)
    1 cup heavy cream
    1/2 cup green peas
    1/2 tsp salt
    1/4 tsp freshly grated nutmeg
    1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
    1 tsp fresh thyme
    1 lb. cooked shrimp (cut to bite size)
    16 oz. crab meat
    2 tbsp fresh chopped chives
    1 1/2 tsp minced fresh tarragon
    1 sheet frozen puff pastry, thawed
    1 egg yolk, lightly beaten with 2 tbsp water

Directions

In a heavy saucepan, melt the butter over medium-high heat. Add the mushrooms and cook, stirring, until wilted and golden brown around the edges, about 5 minutes. Add the shallots and cook until softened, about 1 minute. Sprinkle the flour over the top of the mushrooms and shallots, stir to combine well, and cook for 2 minutes. Add the clam stock and milk, and whisk until smooth. Continue to cook until thickened. Add the heavy cream, green peas, salt, nutmeg, cayenne pepper, and thyme, and cook for 15 minutes, until sauce is thick enough to coat the back of a spoon and the flavors have come together. Set aside until cooled. Add the shrimp, crab, chives, and tarragon. Refrigerate until thoroughly chilled, then divide mixture evenly among five 12-ounce ramekins.

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.

On a lightly floured work surface, roll puff pastry to a thickness of 1/8-inch. Using a decorative cutter, cut the pastry into circles 3/4-inch larger than the diameter of the ramekins. Transfer the dough rounds to the top of the ramekins and press the edges of the pastry around the top of the dishes. With a pastry brush, lightly coat the top of the pastry with some of the egg yolk mixture. Using the tip of a paring knife, cut a slits in the center of the pastry for the steam to escape.

Bake in the middle of the oven for 20 to 25 minutes, or until pastry is puffed and golden brown and sauce is bubbling hot.
