Fish Fillet and Leek Gratin

Ingredients (6 servings)

  • 600 gr (1.3 lbs) fish fillet (3 fillets)
  • 2 leeks into thick slices
  • 2 green onions into pieces of 2-3 cm (0.8-1.2 in)
In a large deep frying pan put the fillets and cover with water. Boil them for 5'-6' until cooked and you can separate the flesh with a fork. Remove them from the pan to a platter and allow to drain and cool.
In the same pan, in the same water put the leeks and the onions and boil for 4'-5' to soften. Put them in a colander and let them drain well and cool.
Meanwhile we make the cream.

Cream

  • 450 gr (1 lbs) milk
  • 2 eggs small or 1 large
  • 100 gr (3.5 oz) flour
  • 2 tbsp mustard
  • salt & pepper
  • 100 gr (3.5 oz) grated cheese
  • 40 gr (1.4 oz) butter + some ore for the refractory
  • 100 gr (3.5 oz) crumbs of fresh sesame bun
In a small saucepan over medium heat add the milk and as it still is cold add the well-beaten egg and flour. Stir constantly and allow the mixture to boil and thicken.
Once the first blisters boiling are created, remove from the heat and add the mustard, salt, pepper, butter, and half the grated cheese. Mix well.
Leave the cream aside for not long.
With the help of two forks crush, bite-sized, the boiled fillet. Salt and pepper.
Above the fish, add the drained leeks and stir to mix the ingredients well together.
Grease an ovenproof dish and pour through the mixture of fish-leeks. You lay well over the entire surface with a fork.
On top add the cream, that you prepared, to go everywhere in the whole surface.
Above the cream sprinkle with the remaining grated cheese…
…and top cover with the cookie crumbs.
Bake in preheated oven at 180°C (356°F, Gas:4.2) for 20'-25'. Just to melt the cheese and golden crumbs.
