"Although many steps, this dish is really quite easy to prepare and can be made ahead. Not for the diet-conscious, but this luscious meal is well worth the extra effort and calories for a splurge or special occasion! Adapted from a Southern Living recipe collected long ago. Lobster, scallops, or fish may be substituted as some of the seafood. Serve crepes in cheese sauce individually for a lovely presentation at a brunch, luncheon or dinner party. The Shrimp Crab filling could be spooned in pre-baked mini-pastry shells for an outstanding appetizer."

"My Sis, Mom, and I made these most lusciously wonderfull Crepes! We made them with lobster and crab.This is a meal to be shared with those you love during special occasions.There was nine of us 2 where children and we all loved them. This most definitely will be made again."
"This recipe is a little work intensive, as BeachGirl says, but the end product is well worth the effort. And if you break the three parts down and do one part at a time, it's really not too bad. I fixed the crepes in the morning, and then did the sauce and filling in the afternoon. They taste sensational!"
"This may very well be the best dish I have made from this site. The only problem I had was time. I am a very slow cook, and it took me much longer than stated, but the results were well worth it. I did everything as instructed, except I used a crepe recipe that I had downloaded before. I wasn't too sure about the vermouth, as I hadn't used it before, but it added a wonderful hint of flavor. The smell of this dish while cooking was out of this world. It also presented nicely. I have to admit that I won't make this often because of dietary concerns, but I will most definitely make this again. Thanks for the great recipe."
"Wow! What a recipe...it was a big hit at Xmas Dinner...a must try.
I cheated and bought the crepes and no one would have known...haha"
"Oh my gosh! Yum! One question, what is the Old Bay seasoning? I did not use it. I just used what I had and made the best of it, all crab and no shrimp. Delicious! It was something that I could make in steps. Crepes in the morning, sauce in the evening."
