Seafood Casserole - Fight Night Feasts - UFC Fight Island 5

Seafood Casserole – Fight Night Feasts – UFC Fight Island 5

The UFC is back on Fight Island with a card headlined by a bantamweight bout between former title challenger Marlon Moraes and rising star Cory Sandhagen.

With fighters consistently sharing images of the beautiful waters and coastline in Abu Dhabi, I thought we might do our first seafood dish here on Fight Nights Feasts.

Prep time for today’s meal takes roughly 10-15 minutes and total cook time is under 30.  Here’s how to make our version of a Seafood Casserole.


5 tablespoons of butter – divided

4 ounces mushrooms – sliced

1/2 pound of shrimp (cooked – buy fresh cooked)

8 ounces lobster meat (imitation will work)

8 ounces crab meat (you can buy jars in the fresh seafood section in your local grocer)

1/4 cup flour

2 cups mils

salt and pepper to taste

1/4 teaspoon paprika

2 teaspoons chives (you can use fresh or dried)

2 teaspoons parsley (fresh or dried)

3 tablespoons dry white wine or sherry

shredded parmesan cheese



Pre-heat over to 350 degrees

Melt 1 tablespoon of butter in non-stick pan.  Add mushrooms and brown.  Remove when tender.

In a buttered casserole dish, add all the seafood (shrimp, lobster, crab) and mushrooms.  Stir.

Add remaining 4 tablespoons of butter to the saucepan you used for the mushrooms.  When melted, stir in the flour.  Cook for 2 minutes.

Add milk and stir constantly for 2 minutes.

Add all the seasonings, herbs, and wine.  Stir.  Sauce will thicken.

Stir the sauce into the seafood combo in the casserole dish.  Sprinkle with parmesan cheese until covered.

Bake 20-25 minutes.

Then broil 1-2 minutes to brown the cheese.
