  • Melt a tablespoon of the butter in a saucepan, add the shrimp shells, and cook, stirring, until the shells turn pink.

  • Add the cheese and stir to mix thoroughly. Season to taste with salt and pepper, then fold in the fish and the shrimps.
  • Cook over low heat for about 3 minutes, or until the shrimps are cooked.
