Melt the butter in a heavy-bottomed saucepan over
very low heat.
When the butter is completely melted, stir in the flour with a
wooden spoon. Cook for about 1 minute over low heat, stirring
constantly. Slowly add the milk. Using a whisk, stir briskly until
you have a smooth sauce, about 2 minutes. Add the wine, lemon juice,
salt, black pepper, and cayenne and whisk again. Switch to the
wooden spoon and keep stirring the white sauce until it is completely
smooth and thickened, about the consistency of mayonnaise. Remove
from the heat.
Bring 2 cups water and 1/2 teaspoon salt to a boil
in a medium
saucepan and add the shrimp. When the water returns to a boil, cook
the shrimp for 1 minute. Drain immediately. Roughly chop the shrimp
and put in a large mixing bowl. Add the crabmeat and, with your
hands, toss gently to mix.
Pour the sauce over the seafood. With a large spoon,
taking care not to break apart the crabmeat.
Spray an 11 by 7-inch casserole dish with vegetable
spray. Pour the mixture into the pan. Place the grated cheese on top,
completely covering the seafood mixture. Bake in a 350F oven
uncovered, for about 25 minutes, until bubbly.
