Fish do love Coco Milk ---> Gratin

Welcome to another cooking session!
Lately I'm totally into fish and sea fruits, that's why today's recipe will contain salmon (again) and shrimps.

1 1/2 cups of rice (I prefer Basmati)
~300 g salmon
~250 g shrimps
2 peppers (yellow and red)
1 can coco milk
half of an bigger onion
2-3 garlic cloves
2 eggs
50 g grated cheese
salt, pepper, 5 spices powder, lemongrass powder, chili powder

Do It!
Put the rice and 2 1/2 cups of water into a pot (plus some salt) and cook it with low heat until the water is gone.
Cut the salmon, peppers, onion and garlic cloves into little pieces.

Heat up a pan, then sweat onion and garlic, put the salmon and shrimps into it for ~3 minutes and use some salt and pepper on it.
When the rice is finished take it from the hotplate.

Now we're going to mix the sauce.
Pour the coco milk in a high bin, add the eggs and all the spices. Stir it, until the eggs are mixed up with the rest.
Use the spices until the sauce meets your taste.

Now pre-heat the oven, 175°C, top-/bottom-heat.

Alternately fill the rice, the peppers, salmon and shrimps plus the sauce into a casserole until it's full. Top the gratin with some grated cheese and put it into the oven for 25-35 minutes.

To add eggs to the gratin sauce is a pretty clever idea, I'll have to try that! x3 Yay for sea fruits!

I add eggs to every selfmade gratin sauce, otherwise it doesn't get sticky. :)

Yep, I think it actually does. ^^"
You could avoid that by using only 1/3 or 1/2 of the coconut milk can and adding milk for the rest.
