seafood lasagne recipe using a mixture of fish and shellfish
- very adaptable and tasty.
love pasta but don't really like minced (ground) beef
- there's an awful lot of that in pasta dishes, so I
devised ways round it.
use fish - either a mixture of tinned and frozen or
fresh or whatever's available really.
a recipe for Seafood Lasagne that I regularly make -
serve it with a salad and some crusty bread - maybe
tbspn olive oil
1 onion, peeled and finely chopped
1 clove garlic, peeled and crushed
4 oz (100g) mushrooms, sliced
1 can 14 oz (400g) peeled chopped plum tomatoes
1 tbspn tomato puree
1 tspn basil or oregano
8 oz (200g) defrosted seafood cocktail
3/4 pint (450ml) milk
cornflour or cornstarch to thicken
1 tspn english mustard powder
twist of black pepper
1 oz (25g) butter
6 oz (150g)grated hard cheese
your oven to Gas Mark 4, 350²F or 180²C
the oil in a pan and cook the garlic and onion until
soft - add the mushrooms and cook for about 1 minute.
the tomatoes, purée and herbs and cook for
about 10 minutes until the sauce is thickened. Add
the seafood cocktail and mix thoroughly.
the lasagne and seafood sauce - you'll probably get
three layers out of the sauce - top with a layer of
the white sauce - put the milk in a pan with a knob
of butter and a couple of twists of black pepper and
bring to the boil.
the cornflour / cornstarch and mustard powder together
and use some milk to make a smooth paste.
the pan off the heat - if you don't the sauce will
go lumpy - and stir in the paste.
to the heat, stirring all the time until the sauce
is thick - continue for a further minute to cook the
in the cheese until it's melted - if you are using
parmesan, then use a lot less than 6 ozs - and pour
over the lasagne.
in the oven for about 40 to 45 minutes.
