    8       lg           Scallops*
  300       ml           Milk
    2                    Salt and pepper
    2       tb           Butter
    1       tb           Flour
      1/2   lb           Mushrooms, sliced
    4       tb           Med.sweet white wine
    1       lb           Fresh mashed potatoes
 
   Directions: * Or 4 scallops and an equal amount of any white fish. Or more
   scallops, if you like. Clean the scallops and cut in half, then simmer in
   the milk for 15 minutes. Strain, reserving the liquid. Heat 1 tablespoon of
   the butter and stir in the flour, cook for about a minute, stirring, then
   add the milk gradually, stirring all the time to avoid lumps. Season with
   salt and pepper, add the sliced mushrooms and simmer for about 10 minutes
   longer;  then add the sherry or wine and finally the scallops. When hot,
   transfer to an ovenproof dish and cover with mashed potatoes, making sure
   they cover the fish right to the edges.  Dot with the remaining butter and
   bake in a moderate oven, 350F, for 20-30 minutes, or until the top is
   turning brown.
