Season with salt and pepper and fill the shells with the mixture, sprinkle with the breadcrumbs and place under the broiler for a few minutes to glaze.
White Sauce: In a saucepan, melt equal parts of butter and flour( over low heat), whisk them together(do not let the mixture get brown) until you obtain a homogenous paste. Let it cool for a few minutes then gradually add some hot fish stock, whisk continuously to prevent lumps. Bring the mixture slowly to boil and let simmer for 15 to 20 minutes.
