Salmon Crepes

Serves:     Total: 45min     Prep: 15min     Cook: 30min

Ingredients

500g fresh or canned cooked salmon, boneless and flaked
12 Basic Crepes (see recipe below)
3 tablespoons butter
3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
¼ teaspoon ground nutmeg
¾ teaspoon salt
⅛ teaspoon pepper
1½ cups light cream or half-and-half
¼ cup dry white wine
⅓ cup grated Parmesan cheese
1 tablespoon fresh chopped chives, plus garnish
Crepes Ingredients:
Makes 16-18 crepes, although the Salmon Crepes recipe above only calls for 12.
1 cup all-purpose flour
1½ cups milk
2 eggs
1 tablespoon cooking oil
¼ teaspoon salt

Instructions

• Prepare the crepes first and set aside.

• Pre-heat the oven to 180C.

• Check the salmon over again for bones and set that aside, too.

• Melt the butter in a medium saucepan on medium heat. Stir in the flour, nutmeg, salt and pepper. Pour in the cream and cook and stir the sauce until it is bubbly and thickened.

• Stir in the wine, then add the cheese. Stir until the cheese is melted, then add the salmon and chives.

• Spread about 1/4 cup of the salmon mixture over the uncooked side of one crepe to within 1/4-inch of the edge. Roll it up, jelly-roll style, and place it seam-side down in a 33x23x5cm baking dish. Repeat for the remaining crepes.

• Spoon the remaining filling over the crepes and garnish with a sprinkling of chives. Cover with foil and bake at 180°C until hot and bubbly, about 20 minutes.

• Serve immediately. Makes 6 servings of 2 crepes each.


Making the crepes:

• In a medium bowl, beat the flour, milk, eggs, oil, and salt together until well-blended.

• Heat a well-seasoned and lightly greased 6-inch skillet over medium heat. When a drop of water sizzles and bounces on the surface, it's ready.

• Remove the skillet from the heat and pour 2 tablespoons of crepe batter into the skillet. Tilt the skillet in all directions, spreading the batter into a thin, even layer. Return the pan to the heat and cook the crepe about 45-60 seconds, until lightly browned.

• Invert the pan over paper towelling to remove the crepe, with the help of a spatula, if necessary. Or, if prefer, flip the crepe and cook it a few seconds on the other side before removing.
