Sauté onion, green pepper, and mushrooms slowly in butter until soft, then remove from heat. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Make cream sauce by mixing béchamel sauce and heavy cream, then mix in sautéed vegetables, pimiento, sherry, and cayenne. Season sauce with salt and pepper, and pour it over fish in casserole. Mix crumbs with cheese and scatter them on top. Put the casserole in the oven and bake until sauce bubbles and crumbs are brown.
