  • Poach fish in some of the milk in the oven.
  • Make cheese sauce by melting butter, mixing in flour and allowing to cook gently for a moment add rest of milk gradually stirring with spoon or balloon whisk. Add cheese. Add tomatoes puree chilli sauce herbs and salt and pepper.
  • Put in shrimp/seafood. Keep hot on hob.
  • When fish is cooked add milk it was cooked in into sauce. Serve with sauce pored over. You can alter amounts of sauce depending on how many are eating. I find a little less than half a pint does two.
