Seafood Gratin

This dish is one of the stars at Roberto Cuadra Cocina Peruana, the best Peruvian restaurant in El Salvador. It has been on the menu for many years, and regulars keep asking for it over and over again. It is made to order, and diners love to have a side of white rice with it to mop up the creamy sauce.

If you don´t usually like mixing seafood with cheese (Italians, for example, run away from this combination), we highly recommend you to try this scrumptious recipe and see if you change your mind. We are confident that you will.
