2 tablespoons plain flour
2 cups milk
1 1/2 cups grated cheddar cheese
415g can red salmon
1/2 cup frozen peas
1/2 cup frozen corn
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
1 teaspoon finely grated lemon rind
3 cups cooked white long-grain rice
Salt and pepper to taste
Fresh flat leaf parsley leaves for garnish
Preheat oven to 160C
Melt butter in a medium sized saucepan over low heat. Add flour and stir until there are no more lumps and the butter mixture bubbles. Remove from heat and slowly pour in the milk. Return the pan to medium heat and stir constantly for 5 minutes or until it thickens. Remove from heat and let it cool.
Drain the juice from the salmon and discard it. Remove the skin and the bones. Place the salmon in a bowl and flake. Add the peas, corn, lemon juice, lemon rind and season it with salt and pepper.
Place half of the cooked rice on a greased 24cm square baking dish. Spoon half of the salmon mixture on top of the rice. After, put another layer of cheese. Repeat this until all the ingredients are finished. Bake it for 25-30minutes or until the cheese bubbles and turns light brown. Remove from the oven and let it stand for 5-10 minutes before serving. Garnish with chopped parsley.
