My mom always made these for special occasions. They are so delicious and make a very impressive presentation. Time to make includes the two hours to chill the crepe batter.

  4. Melt butter and stir into batter.
  5. Cover and chill two hours.
  6. Heat a 7-inch frying pan; test temperature by sprinkling a few drops of water- when drops bounce about, the temperature is right.

  18. Blend 3/4 cup of the sauce with the salmon and chives in a medium-sized bowl; stir lemon juice into remaining sauce.
