Equipment
  • saucepan
  • Casserole
Ingredients
  
For casserole:
  • 2 tbsp unsalted butter
  • 4 oz mushrooms
  • 12-16 oz shrimp
  • 8 oz cooked ling fillets
  • 1-4 tbsp parmesan cheese
For sauce:
  • 2 tbsp unsalted butter
  • ¼ cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups milk
  • Kosher salt
  • black pepper freshly ground
  • ¼ tsp paprika
  • 2 tsp chives thinly sliced
  • 2 tsp parsley finely chopped
  • 2 tbsp dry white wine or sherry
Instructions
 
  • Preheat your oven to 350° F. In the meantime, melt 1 tbsp of butter in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Add the mushrooms and cook until they are tender, stirring from time to time.
  • Use 1 tbsp of butter to grease the casserole (½ quart) and mix your seafood components on it, topping them off with the cooked mushrooms.
  • Prepare the sauce. Add the remaining 3 tbsp of butter to a saucepan over medium-low heat. Whisk in the flour until it’s smooth and bubbly. Cook for another 2 minutes stirring constantly.
  • Add the milk gradually, constantly stirring. Reduce the heat and continue stirring until the sauce is thickened and the mixture turns to a light sauce. Add salt, pepper, chives, paprika, parsley, and wine.
  • Pour the sauce into the seafood casserole, mix it, and bake for 8-10 minutes in a preheated oven.
  • Remove the dish from the oven and sprinkle the parmesan cheese on top of it. Pro tip: you can also use breadcrumbs for a crunchy top.
  • Return the dish to the oven and bake for another 8-10 minutes until it has a brown and pleasant top. Serve immediately and enjoy!
