Fish Gratin

750 g White fish fillets; (such as cod or haddock)
Salt and pepper
1 tb Lemon juice
45 g Butter
25 g Flour
300 ml Milk
150 ml Single cream
100 g Cooked shrimps or prawns; (shelled weight) roughly chopped, optional)
2 Egg yolks
50 g Parmesan or other full-flavoured hard; freshly grated cheese


Preheat the oven to 180C/350F/gas4.

Put the fish fillets into a lightly buttered ovenproof dish and season with salt, pepper and lemon juice. Cover with foil and bake in the oven for about 20 minutes, until just cooked. Drain off any liquid and quickly flake fish, discarding the skin. Place in a shallow gratin dish.

Meanwhile melt the 45g of butter in a saucepan and stir in the flour. Stir for a minute, then draw off the heat and gradually mix in the milk, a little at a time, followed by the cream. Simmer for 5-10 minutes, until thick, with no trace of raw flour taste. Draw off the heat again and stir in the shrimps or prawns (if using), then the egg yolks, salt and pepper. Pour over the cooked fish and sprinkle with Parmesan. Whip under a preheated grill until nicely browned.
