225 g/8 oz haddock or other white fish fillet
150 ml/0.25 pt milk
15 g/0.5 oz/1 tbsp butter or margarine
15 g/0.5 oz/2 tbsp plain (all-purpose) flour

Place the haddock and milk in a pan, bring to a simmer, then poach for about 8 minutes until the fish flakes when tested with a fork. Lift out the fish, reserving the milk, take off the skin and flake the flesh. Melt the butter or margarine in a saucepan, stir in the flour and cook for 1 minute. Whisk in the milk in which the fish was cooked, season to taste and cook, stirring, until the sauce thickens. Remove from the heat and beat in the egg yolks, then add the haddock and prawns. Whisk the egg whites until stiff and fold them into the sauce and pour into a greased 18 cm/7 in soufflé dish. Sprinkle with the breadcrumbs and cheese and bake in a preheated oven at 200°C/400°F/gas mark 6 for 30 minutes until well risen and golden brown. Serve immediately.
