Shrimp Crepes Recipe

Several years ago, I came up this recipe when I was experimenting with my new crepe maker. It was a hit with the whole family and now appears on many special-occasion menus. —Donna Bartlett, Reno, Nevada
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 30 min. Bake: 15 min. YIELD:8 servings

Ingredients

  • 1-1/2 cups milk
  • 4 eggs
  • 3 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons sugar
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • FILLING:
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 4-1/2 cups chopped fresh broccoli
  • 6 green onions, chopped
  • 2 teaspoons minced garlic, divided
  • 1/4 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce, divided
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 pound uncooked shrimp, peeled and deveined
  • 1/4 cup white wine or chicken broth
  • 1 envelope bearnaise sauce

Directions

  • 1. In a large bowl, combine the milk, eggs and butter. Combine the flour, sugar and salt; add to milk mixture and mix well. Cover and refrigerate for 1 hour.
  • 2. Heat a lightly greased 8-in. nonstick skillet over medium heat; pour 2 tablespoons batter into the center of skillet. Lift and tilt pan to coat bottom evenly. Cook until top appears dry; turn and cook 15-20 seconds longer. Remove to a wire rack. Repeat with remaining batter, greasing skillet as needed. When cool, stack crepes with waxed paper or paper towels in between.
  • 3. For filling, in a large skillet, melt butter over medium heat. Add broccoli, onions, 1 teaspoon garlic, 1/8 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce, salt and pepper. Cook and stir for 7-9 minutes or until broccoli is crisp-tender. Remove mixture from the pan and set aside. Add the shrimp, wine or broth, and remaining garlic and Worcestershire sauce to the pan. Saute until shrimp turn pink, about 4 minutes. Return broccoli mixture to skillet.
  • 4. Spoon filling down center of crepes; roll. Place in an ungreased 15-in. x 10-in. x 1-in. baking pan. Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 15-20 minutes or until heated through. Meanwhile, prepare Bearnaise sauce according to package directions. Serve with crepes. Yield: 8 servings (16 crepes).
