... or Shrimp crêpes.  Ever since Nola posted his crêpe thread, I have been wanting crêpes.  I don't make them often and I don't know why.  They are so delicate and very versatile.   This time, I thought I'd make one of my favorites - seafood crêpes.  But, I didn't have crab or scallops, so I went with straight shrimp.

Here are some pictures.  I don't know if many will want to try this, so I won't post the recipes.  But, if you do, message me, and I'll send them on.

On the Egg at 425° for 15 minutes.  This will cook the shrimp.

Ready to eat.

    Niiiice Cook Gary! Pam has to love the effort you put into your preparation. If she doesn't, let me know and I'll come eat crepes with you hahhahahah

  • Man that brings back memories. My mom used to do them with shrimp and scallops with a rum infused St. Jaques sauce. Excellent!

  • @Cazzy You're welcome, any time.

    @Little Steven  I started to call them St. Jacques, but that (apparently) implies scallops.  Glad I brought back memories.  In this case, the béchamel sauce was infused with dry sherry and swiss cheese.

  • Mom did hers with emmenthal. Can't be the same recipe cause it came from a book put out by Seagrams distilleries in the seventies. I have two copies of the book but can't locate either of them. She had a crepe pan that you dipped in the batter, bottom first and cooked inverted. Never found it when she passed away. If I ever find the book I'll copy and send you the recipe.

    VI - off the charts!

    Used to make coquilles saint Jacques - a bechamel based bay scallop dish for the restaurant I worked at.  Probably made and cooked a few thousand of them in the day.  Damn good use for bay scallops. 

    Again, VI, looks delish.

    Thanks, Joan.  I do the crepes on the stove.  Also, the bechamel sauce.

    I did the final bake on the Egg so I could post it here.

    I thank your husband for his service in VietNam.  He was never given the proper appreciation for his sacrifices.

    I'd like the recipe mate.  I do crepes, but usually dessert crepes.

    It just dawned on me.  If I'm going to send the recipe as a message, I might as well post it here.

    Crepes, dinner

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Ingredients:

    1 cup Flour, all purpose

    1/8 teaspoon Salt

    3 Eggs

    1 1/2 cups Milk

    2 tablespoons Butter, melted, or oil

    Directions:

    1. Sift flour and salt.  Add eggs, one at a time, beating thoroughly. Add melted butter and beat until smooth (or mix in electric blender until smooth). Let batter stand for 1 hour before cooking crepes.  Makes about 18 crepes.

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Bechamel Sauce


    Ingredients:

    4 tablespoons Butter

    4 tablespoons Flour     

    1 cup Milk

    2 cups Whipping cream

    1 teaspoon Salt

    1/8 teaspoon Pepper, White

     In a heavy 2- or 3-quart saucepan melt butter over moderate heat. Remove from heat and stir in flour. Add milk and cream all at once, stirring constantly with whisk. When the sauce comes to a boil and is smooth, reduce heat. Simmer, still stirring, for 2 to 3 minutes or until sauce is thick enough to coat the whisk wires heavily. Remove from heat and season with salt and white pepper.

    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Ingredients:

     Crepes

    1/2 pound Crab meat

    1 bunch Scallions, chopped

    Salt, to taste

    Pepper  , to taste


    Directions:

    1. Add sherry and cheese to baceamella sauce

    2. Combine half the sauce with seafood and scallions, season to taste.

    3. Place a big spoonful of shellfish mix on each crepe.  Roll up and place in buttered baking dish.

    4. Top with remaining sauce, sprinkle with additional cheese

    5. Bake about 15 minutes at 425 degrees until hot and brown
