Wow! I believe the Edmonds Cook Book one is good, but have never had the dosh to try it.

3 cups fish stock
25g butter
25g flour
300g milk
salt and pepper
pinch of mace or nutmeg
1 1/2 dozen oysters
few drops of lemon juice

Melt butter, stir in flour, add stock and milk gradually, stirring all the time. Cook until the mixture thickens, then 5-10 minutes longer. Season. remove from the heat and add chopped oysters and lemon juice.

Off the topic ever so slightly - the recipe is in my "old" copy of the ECB but not in my flatmate's much newer version. Makes me wonder whether her copy also is missing recipes with tripe, liver, shin fillets etc!
