DIRECTIONS

  • CREPES.
  • Combine flour and salt in a medium sized blow.
  • Beat eggs until blended in a small bowl; stir in milk; beat into flour mixture until smooth.
  • Melt butter and stir into batter.
  • Cover and chill two hours.
  • Heat a 7-inch frying pan; test temperature by sprinkling a few drops of water- when drops bounce about, the temperature is right.
  • Measure batter, 2 tbsp at a time into pan, tilting pan to cover bottom.
  • Bake crepe 1 to 2 minutes or until bottoms browns; turn; bake 1 minute longer.
  • As crepes are baked, stack on a plate with paper towels between; keep warm.
  • Repeat with remaining batter, buttering pan before each baking, to make about 24 crepes.
  • FILLING.
  • Melt 3 tbsp butter in a medium-sized saucepan; blend in the 3 tbsp four.
  • Cook, stirring constantly until bubbly.
  • Stir in salt, pepper, tarragon and cream.
  • Continue cooking and stirring until sauce thickens and boils for 1 minute.
  • Beat egg yolks slightly in a small bowl; stir in about half of the sauce (while it is still hot), then stir back into remaining sauce in pan.
  • Cook 1 minute longer, remove from heat.
  • Blend 3/4 cup of the sauce with the salmon and chives in a medium-sized bowl; stir lemon juice into remaining sauce.
  • Place heaping tbsp of the salmon mixture on each crepe; roll up, jelly roll fashion and place in a single layer in a buttered broilerproof dish, 13X9X2.
  • Pour remaining sauce over crepes; sprinkle Parmesan cheese over all.
  • Bake in a 400 oven for 10 minutes or until bubbly (if you prefer top slightly brown, place in broiler for 2 to 3 minutes).
  • Serve hot.
