Seafood Gratin
Print Recipe
We are blessed with fabulous seafood, so whether haddock, fresh or smoked, fishmonger’s fish pie mix or luxury scallops for a special occasion – all are equally delicious. Vegetable gratins also work beautifully with courgettes, cauliflower or even Brussels sprouts! If using vegetables, steam before placing in the ovenware dish instead of poaching in milk. I know of no commercial crumbs that get our vote! Breadcrumbs are easy to make in a mortar and pestle and you can simultaneously rid yourself of the frustrations in life! It takes a matter of moments and the difference in flavour is outstanding. Store in an airtight jar for months and use as required.

Instructions
  1. Pre heat oven 190°C
  2. Place fish offcuts in a buttered ovenware dish and cover with measured milk. Season. (If much of the fish is smoked, reduce the added salt). Bake for approx. 15minutes until fish is opaque and flakes with a fork.
  3. Remove from oven and carefully drain off hot milk into a jug.
  4. To prepare sauce, melt butter and add flour to make a roux. Gradually blend in the hot milk using a balloon whisk, stirring through to boiling point for a couple of minutes. The sauce should be smooth and sufficiently thick to coat the back of a spoon.
  5. Adjust seasoning and add herbs.
  6. Pour sauce over the cooked fish in the dish.
  7. Scatter breadcrumbs and grated cheese on top and return to oven.
  8. Bake for 8-10 minutes until bubbling and golden.
  9. Serves 2 with a salad/seasonal vegetable.
