"The herbed crepes can be doubled and extras frozen. Double all the ingredient, but use only 3 eggs. Use any combination of herbs that you like. We used chives and thyme."

    I definitely tweaked this recipe, but totally enjoyed the help it provided. I used home-grown dehydrated dill and tarragon in the batter. Also I used fresh crab and lobster meat, I added one small garden fresh green pepper, some tiny carrots, onion, scant amount of garlic and fresh button mushrooms for the filling, also I reduced a small amount of sherry into the mix. In the sauce I also added some heavy cream as I used no cheese at all, this is a rich dish and I felt the cheese was not needed with the cream, sherry, and nutmeg. It was fabulous! I am in love with the herb crepes now and will try different herb and seafood mixtures in the future, I believe the mushrooms added a lot of taste to the dish , it was splendid.

    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.
