Tasty Seafood Sauce

This delicious sauce makes a great savoury filling for a pancake or as a superb alternative in a lasagne…

You will need:

  • 125g unsalted butter
  • 75g plain flour
  • 1 litre pints full-fat milk, warmed
  • salt and black pepper to season
  • pinch grated nutmeg
  • 1 lemon – zest only
  • 500g assorted raw fish and shellfish, according to season (I like a mix of smoked salmon, haddock, and tiger prawns)
  • 1 tbsp chopped fresh tarragon
  • 100g button mushrooms, sliced
  • 12 small plum tomatoes, chopped into halves

How to do it:

Melt the butter in a saucepan, then add the flour and stir for 2-3 minutes minutes. Gradually whisk in the milk. Season to taste and add the nutmeg and lemon zest, then whisk until well combined. Cook the sauce for another five minutes, then fold in the fish and mushrooms, then take off heat. Add the tarragon and tomatoes and leave to stand for a further three minutes or so.
