Crepes – Smoked Salmon & Herbed Cream Cheese

image_pdf

Crepes, Crepes and More Crepes! Today we make crepes filled with smoked salmon and a deliciously seasoned cream cheese mixture. Top it off with some sour cream and onions and it’s a delicious brunch dish!

What you need:

 Basic Crepe –

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 ½ cup milk
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 Tablespoons melted butter
  • ½ teaspoon salt

How to Do it:

Place all the ingredients in a blender and blend on high until it is well mixed. Let it sit for about 30 to 45 minutes.

Heat a crepe pan. Pour some batter into a “dipping” tray and dip the hot crepe pan into the batter. Hold for about 30 seconds, then carefully lift. (Some crepe griddles have you brush the batter on)

Allow the crepe to cook for about 1 to 2 minutes. It will lift easily when it’s done. Be careful not to overcook. If the edges get crispy they won’t fold right.

NOTE: the first one or two always come out weird.

Place on a plate and continue to cook until all the batter is used.

You can make your fillings now or store in an air tight container until you’re ready to use them.

(makes about 12 to 15 crepes)

The Filling 

What you need:

  • 2/3 cup softened cream cheese
  • 2 Tablespoon capers
  • 1 Tablespoon chopped flat leaf parsley
  • 1 Tablespoon chopped red onion
  • 8 oz smoked salmon (lox)
  • 4 Tablespoons sour cream
  • 8 crepes

How to Do it:

Gently mix the cream cheese with the capers, onions and parsley. Let it set for about 30 minutes to incorporate flavors.

Spread each crepe with 1/8 of the cream cheese mixture.

Top with 1 oz of the smoked salmon.

Gently fold the sides of each crepe. Place two on a plate and top with 1 Tablespoon of sour cream.

Garnish with some chopped onion and parsley. Serve cold.

Makes about 8 crepes
