Check out:

Budisa, Steipe, Demange, Eckerskorn, Kellerman and Huber, High-level
biosynthetic substitution of methionine in proteins by its analogs
2-aminohexanoic acid, selenomethionine, telluromethionine and ethionine in
E. coli, European Journal of Biochemistry, 230, 788-796, 1995.  

Quite a nice paper with lots of details.  Should be just what you're
looking for.
