Seafood ala crème

Seafood ala crème



  • Water and milk
  • A spritz of lemon juice
  • Salt and pepper
  • 2 Hake steaks, cubed
  • Fresh Cream


Sautee the onions in some olive oil until translucent.
Add the thyme and garlic and continue to stir.
Add the prawns and the peri-peri.
Spoon out the prawns when half-way done and reserve in a bowl.
Make certain you do not remove the onion, its ok if a wee bit goes out with the prawns.
Add the ready-mix seafood soup powder and stir. Add about 1 cup of water and whisk, ensuring there are no lumps. Add 1/2 cup of milk and continue to whisk.
Top with 1 small fresh cream and reduce the heat. Season with salt and freshly ground pepper.
Spritz your lemon, about 1/2 tsp.
Add the mussels, prawns and hake pieces and switch the stove off. Remove from the heat.
When you are ready to serve, give it one boil and ladle into white crockery.
Garnish with Italian parsley and black pepper. Serve with grilled bread (butter the bread and grill on a pan)
