Seafood Au Gratin Recipe
- 4 tablespoons butter, divided
- 2 tablespoons King Arthur Unbleached All-Purpose Flour
- 1/8 teaspoon pepper
- 1 cup chicken broth
- 1/2 cup 2% milk
- 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese, divided
- 1/2 pound sea scallops
- 1 pound haddock or cod fillets, cut into six pieces
- 1-1/2 cups sliced fresh mushrooms
- 1/2 cup shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese
- 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
- In a large saucepan, melt 2 tablespoons butter. Stir in flour and pepper until smooth; gradually add broth and milk. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened. Stir in 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese; set aside.
- Place scallops in another saucepan; cover with water. Simmer, uncovered, for 4-5 minutes or until firm and opaque. Meanwhile, place fillets in a shallow 2-qt. microwave-safe dish.

One of the best seafood dishes we have ever eaten. Friends requested the recipe.
I thought this recipe was very good and my dh liked it as well. I ended up using a pound of scallops instead of 1/2 lb. My only question is, why cook the scallops and cod prior to baking? It seems to me this is an unnecessary step and I think it toughens the scallops. Next time, I will bake only to see how it comes out. But it was still a great recipe, full of flavor.
Very good.I'm always looking for seafood recipes because my guys love to fish and we like imitation crabmeat-I know alot of people turn their noses up at it-but it is real fish and its inexpensive. I used it in this and it worked very well. I did add alittle extra cheese on top and ate in on brown rice. A keeper-will go on my short list of go to seafood meals.
