1 1/2 Cups
Mixed seafood - fish, prawns and crab meat
Homemade chicken stock
Pepper, freshly ground
For the crust
- To a large skillet with a little oil or a greased with some cooking spray, drop your veggies and sauté until they are soft.
- Sprinkle salt to taste and then add your mixed seafood. Move it around the pan until everything is well cooked.
- Now sprinkle the flour and mix well until everything in the pan is slightly coated with flour.
- Add the milk to it to create your white sauce.
- Now add the chicken stock to it. Lower the heat and allow the sauce to thicken.
- While the sauce is thickening, add the cream cheese to make it creamy. Mix well. Let it cook for another 2 minutes and remove from heat. If the mixture has become too thick then loosen it up with a little extra stock. Keep aside.
- Scoop the mixture into individual ramekins almost all the way full.
- Now for the crust, mix together all the dry ingredients and pour in the milk. Mix really well.
- Now add the melted butter and mix some more making sure that there are no clumps.
- Spoon this mixture into the almost full ramekins evenly.
- Bake at 425 for 30 minutes or until the crust has turned golden.
- Remove and dig in immediately. A scorched tongue is but only a small sacrifice in front of this creamy divinity,
