Recipe's preparation

    Seafood Mornay Sauce
  1. Place Gruyere cheese in the mixing bowl, and grate 8sec/speed 7. Transfer to a bowl and set aside. Rinse out mixing bowl.
  2. Place butter, milk, cream, flour, salt, pepper and mustard in the mixing bowl then start Thicken mode /100 degrees Celsius. While the mixture is stirring, reverse/speed 0.5, add the cheese through the lid until well-combined and melted. Then on reverse/stirring mode add the crab meat and Moreton Bay Bug until mixed through. Serve hot or use as desired.
  3. While the sauce is thickening, place butter into a pan and sauté the prawns and scallops until cooked through (approximately 5-10mins - the prawns should be opaque white with pink and bright red accents and the scallops should be seared until golden brown and the sides should look opaque all the way through).
  4. Assembly - place the cooked prawns and scallops on top of a steak (see tips) and pour over the seafood mornay sauce.

For a thinner consistency, use 10 grams less butter and flour for each.

Seafood - if the Moreton Bay Bug is uncooked split it in half and cook flesh side down with the prawns and scallops. Crab meat can be used instead of bug meat.

Tip - use the Cookidoo Sous vide rare beef steak with bernaise sauce (TM6) recipe but replace the bernaise sauce with the seafood mornay sauce.
