3/4 lb cod cut into bite size pieces
1/4 lb each sea scallops and baby/salad shrimp
Nutmeg to taste
1.5 c milk
3 T butter, divided
4 oz mushrooms, sliced
Salt and pepper
2 T flour
2 T chives
4-5 c prepared mashed potatoes
Melted butter or oil, to brush on top
In a small pot, bring milk, pepper, parsley, nutmeg, and bay leaf barely to a simmer. Add scallops and poach until just done. Remove to a large bowl. Add cod and poach until just done (I did that in two batches as my pot was quite small). Remove to bowl with scallops. Set milk aside.
In a medium pot, melt 1 T butter. Add mushrooms, salt, and pepper. Cook mushrooms until tender and golden. Remove to bowl with seafood.
Melt remaining butter in pot. Whisk in flour to make a roux. Cook a couple minutes, then whisk in hot milk. Bring to a bubble and cook for 2 minutes. Remove from heat. Stir in shrimp, and cooked seafood. Set aside.
Preheat broiler (mine uses temperature, so was set at 425*. Choose your temp accordingly)
In 2qt broiler safe dish, spoon seafood mixture. Make sure seafood is evenly distributed. Carefully spoon mashed potatoes around the top in small spoonfuls. Carefully spread into an even layer, completely covering the seafood. Smooth the top, then make ridges with a fork. Brush melted butter or oil on the top to help browning.
Place in broiler and cook until brown and bubbly. Watch carefully to prevent burning!
