Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer for 2 minutes or until seafood is cooked. Drain, saving 1 cup (250 mL) of cooking liquid. Set seafood mixture aside.

Remove from heat, add 1 cup (250 mL) cheese and stir until cheese is melted. Add seafood mixture and stir carefully. Add salt and pepper to taste.

Melt remaining 1 Tbsp. (15 mL) butter, toss with bread and remaining 1/2 cup (125 mL) cheese. Divide seafood and sauce mixture evenly among 6 individual gratin dishes, top with cheese and bread mixture. Broil until golden.
