Saute over medium heat until the mixture is reduced. Add the seafood mixture and mix well. Remove from the heat and stir in the Ritz crumb mixture. In a separate bowl blend the egg and water. Add the egg/water mixture to the pan and mix well. Stuff each mushroom cap with a small portion of the seafood mixture. Brush with melted butter and top with cheese. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes, or until cheese is melted.
