we made this recipe yesterday for the french forum crepe cook along. the filling was incredible! i used half a pound each of shrimp and bay scallops, and i couldn't resist adding 8 oz sliced cremini mushrooms. a simple, elegant, delicious dish.

very good i added baby scallops and imitation crab to the shrimp as i used to buy these at a local grocery store in Campbell River B.C. on Vancouver Island both my husband and i absolutely loved them and i made them for our anniversary and he loved them the only thing is i would not add so much sauce but throw in mushroom buttons and seasonings.

Yummy, had no gruyere, used cheddar and parmesan, also some mushrooms and a mixture of cooked prawns, oysters, fish and scallops (poached these in wine/water first)and served with steam vegies. Looked elegant on the plate.
