Seafood Pancakes Recipe
1 cup flour
1 pinch salt
1 egg, lightly beaten
4 tsp oil
1 1/2 cup milk plus 1 tbsp
1/2 lb monkfish
3/4 cup milk
2 garlic cloves, chopped
1/2 lb shrimp, shelled
2 tbsp butter
3 tbsp flour
1/4 cup light cream
1 cup gruyere cheese
2 tbsp parsley, fresh, chopped
1 salt and pepper
1 1/2 tbsp oil for frying
Make pancake batter by mixing flour and salt in mixing bowl. Make
well in center and pour in the egg, 4 tsp oil and 1 cup milk. Whisk
to smooth batter then add remaining milk.
Remove any skin from monkfish, rinse and cut into bite-size pieces.
Pat dry. Rinse and pat dry scallops, cut in half. Pour 3/4 cup milk
into saucepan, add garlic and bring to simmer. Add all fish except
shrimp. Simmer for 5-6 minutes then add shrimp. When shrimp turn pink
remove all fish to a bowl and set aside. Strain fish milk and reserve
for sauce. Place butter in saucepan and melt, add flour and stir for
2 minutes, then pour in reserved milk and the cream. Continue to stir
and simmer for a few minutes until you have a smooth sauce. Turn heat
to low, add cheese and parsley and season to taste with salt and
pepper. Add fish, mix well.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Place small frying pan or omelet pan over high heat. Lightly grease
it with a little oil. Beat pancake batter, then pour 3 Tbsp into pan.
Turn pan so bottom is covered evenly with batter and cook for 40-60
seconds, turn and cook 30-40 seconds longer. Transfer to large plate.
Continue with remaining batter. (There should be enough filling for
10 pancakes.) Place an equal amount of filling (about 3 Tbsp) in
center of each pancake, fold the sides over filling and arrange in
ovenproof dish just large enough to hold pancakes. Place in oven for
20 minutes, or until the pancakes are hot through. Serve immediately.
