1hr 40mins




  • 1.Preheat oven to 400°F Coat a 9-by-13-inch (or similar 3-quart) baking dish with cooking spray.
  • Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Add leeks and celery and cook, stirring often, until the leeks are softened, 2 to 3 minutes. Stir in potatoes, stock (or clam juice), 1 teaspoon Old Bay and pepper. Cover and bring to a simmer over high heat. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer, covered, until the potatoes are just tender, 6 to 8 minutes.
  • Whisk milk, flour and mustard in a measuring cup. Stir into the potato mixture, increase heat to medium-high and bring to a simmer, stirring constantly. Stir in shrimp and fish and return to a simmer, stirring often; cook until the seafood is just cooked through, about 3 minutes. Remove from the heat and stir in crab, 1 1/2 cups Gruyère and half the dill.
  • Transfer the seafood mixture to the prepared baking dish. Mix breadcrumbs with the remaining 1 teaspoon each oil and Old Bay. Stir in the remaining 1/2 cup Gruyère and the remaining dill. Sprinkle the breadcrumb mixture over the casserole.
  • Bake the casserole until it is bubbling and golden brown, 20 to 30 minutes. Let stand 10 minutes before serving.

  1. This was good, but I made a lot of substitutions. I used butter to cook the leeks. I used dashi stock powder for the seafood stock. I substituted swiss cheese. Next time I will use half as much dill, it was a little much for me. The smells when this was cooking were just wonderful.
  2. This was wonderful. I made it for a friend who has a family member in the hospital and no time to cook. They loved did we. Two things though: I only used 2 1/2 t of dill and it was plenty! And it was rather pricey to make although it does serve more than 8.
