I make regular lasagna a lot but for a real change up I sometimes put together a seafood lasagna that is delicious. Especially when I can find Halibut or crab meat on sale. I usually go with the fresh lump crab meat but any seafood you choose is just as good in this recipe.
1 lb fresh halibut (or you can use Fresh lump crabmeat)
4 Tablespoons of Butter
4 Cloves of Garlic (chopped)
1/4 Cup chicken stock)
1 Tablespoon of Lemon Juice
4 Tablespoons of Flour
2 cups of heavy cream or half and half
2 Cups of Parmesan Cheese (grated)
2 Cups of Mozzarella (grated)
16 oz. Ricotta Cheese
1 cup sliced mushrooms
1 box Lasagna Noodles, cooked and drained
2 Teaspoons salt (to taste)
1 Teaspoon of Pepper (to taste)
Saute garlic in butter or olive oil until tender. Add mushrooms and saute until tender. Add the halibut and sauté until cooked. When done, flake the halibut into pieces. If using crabmeat, just saute lightly to warm being careful not to burn. Remove the seafood to a plate and set it aside.
In same skillet add chicken stock and lemon stir up any remaining bits on bottom of skillet. Simmer to reduce liquid by half. Then return the seafood back to the skillet and coat in liquid. Remove pan and set aside.
In another large skillet or saucepan melt butter and large sauce pan melt 4 Tablespoons of butter. Stir in flour and to cook for at least two minutes until flour cooks. Whisk in the cream and continue whisking to get rid of any lumps. Allow the sauce to thicken stirring frequently. Then add the Parmesan cheese and season to taste.
In separate bowl mix the the ricotta, spinach, egg, 1/2 cup of Parmesan cheese, 1 cup of mozzarella and a cup of the white sauce. Pour 1 Cup of the white sauce into the bottom of a 9 by 13 baking dish. Cover the sauce with a layer of cooked noodles in the baking dish.
Next pour half of the cheese/spinach mixture over the noodle layer. Then cover with a layer of noodles. Layer in all of your seafood from the pan, pour 1 cup of the white sauce over the seafood. Place a layer of noodles over this seafood layer. Add a layer of the remaining cheese/spinach mixture. Add a final layer of noodles on top.
Pour the remaining white sauce over the noodles. Top with 1/2 cup of Mozzarella and 1/2 cup of Parmesan sprinkled as the final topping layer. Bake in a preheated 350 degree oven until bubbling on the sides and
golden brown on top, about 45-60 minutes.
