Seafood Gratin

By H.A.R. on Jun 7, 2013

I got introduced to this dish in a small restaurant a few weeks ago, and since then i have become addicted to it!
This is a heartwarming and easy dish, that takes little time, and cooks itself in the oven!
It is very nutritious and extremely delicious!

Seafood Gratin


1 tablespoons olive oil
225g pound fresh shrimp, peeled and deveined
225g pound sea scallops, rinsed and drained
225g pound cooked crab meat
1 1/2 tablespoons butter
1 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1 cups hot chicken broth
1 1/2 tablespoons chopped onions
1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1/4 cup grated Mozzarella cheese

Preheat oven to 200C. Lightly butter 4 small baking dishes.
In a pan, heat olive oil over medium high heat. Saute shrimp and scallops until firm, about 5 minutes.

In a medium saucepan, melt butter over medium heat. Stir in flour until smooth. Gradually add chicken broth and raise heat to high. Stir until thickened. Mix in onions & cook for 5 to 10 minutes.

Arrange shrimp, scallops and crab in the bottom of prepared dishes. Pour sauce over seafood and cover with cheese.

Bake in preheated oven until golden, about 12 t o15 minutes.
