Seafood Lasagne

Ingredients

1 litre/1 pint 15fl oz milk

2 bay leaves

1 garlic clove

40g/1½oz unsalted butter, plus extra for greasing

50g/2oz plain flour

1 tsp English mustard

salt and freshly ground black pepper

400g/14oz lasagne sheets

2 tbsp chopped fresh tarragon

400g/14oz assorted fish and seafood of your choice (salmon, cod, prawns, mussels, etc.)

large handful baby spinach

150g/5oz vegetarian cheese, grated

75g/2 ½oz vegetarian parmesan, grated

Method

Preheat the oven to 180C/365F/Gas 4.

Place the milk, bay leaves and garlic into a pan over a medium heat, remove from heat just before boiling point.

Melt the butter in a separate pan over a low heat, then stir in the flour and cook for 2-3 minutes, stirring constantly.

Remove the bay leaves and garlic from the milk, then add a little of the milk to the flour and butter mixture. Stir to make a paste and cook out for 1-2 minutes, stirring constantly. Add small amounts milk, stirring constantly, until a thick, smooth sauce has formed. Gradually add the rest of the milk, adding a little at a time and bringing to the boil before adding more milk. Repeat until all the milk has been added. Take off the heat, add the mustard and season well with salt and freshly ground black pepper.

Place a spoonful or two of the sauce into your greased lasagne dish to just cover the bottom. Cover with a couple of lasagne sheets.

Stir the tarragon, fish, seafood and spinach to the remaining sauce and stir until well combined.

Spoon some of the fish sauce mixture onto the lasagne sheets and top with another layer of lasagne sheets. Repeat this layering of fish sauce mixture and lasagne until all of the sauce and pasta have been used up. The final layer should be lasagne sheets.

Sprinkle the top with the cheddar cheese and parmesan, then transfer to the oven to bake for 40 minutes, or until the fish is cooked and the topping is golden-brown.

Serve at the table in the lasagne dish with some garlic bread.
