Creamy Seafood Crepes

Serves 6
Creamy Seafood Crepes

A succulent filling of shrimp and whitefish in an herbed cream sauce makes these crepes an excellent light lunch dish or dinner pa1ty first course. The u11]iLJed CTePeS can be made in advance and stored in the freezer for up to 1 month: leave them to cool after flying, layer them with waxed paper, and wrap in foil.

  • 1/2 lb (250g) cod fillet, skinned
  • 3/4 lb (375 g) shrimp, cooked
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 small onion, finely chopped
  • 1 garlic clove, crushed
  • 4 tomatoes, peeled, seeded, and finely chopped
  • 1 tbsp dill seeds, crushed
  • salt and black pepper
  • 3 tbsp light cream
  • 2 tbsp chopped fresh basil
  • basil sprigs and lemon coronets to garnish
  • 1 cup (125 g) all-purpose flour
  • 1 egg, plus 1 egg yolk
  • 1 1/4 cups (300ml) milk
  • sunflower or corn oil for frying


  1. Make the crepe batter: sift the flour into a large bowl and make a well in the middle. Add the egg, extra egg yolk, and a little of the milk.
  2. Gradually blend in the flour, beating until smooth. Add the remaining milk to give the batter the consistency of th i n cream. Leave to stand for about 30 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, make the filling: cut the cod into 1/2-in (I-cm) pieces. Reserve 12 of the shrimp for garnish and peel the remainder.
  4. Heat the oil in a medium saucepan, add the onion and garlic, and cook gently, stirring occasionally, for a few minutes, until soft but not browned.
  5. Add the cod, tomatoes, dill seeds, and salt and pepper to taste. Cook over medium heat, stirring, for 10 minutes or until the mixture is thick and rich.
  6. Stir in the cream and shrimp and heat gently. Remove from the heat and stir in the basil. Keep warm.
  7. Heat a small skillet, and brush with a little oil. Ladle about 3 tbsp batter into the pan and cook for 1 minute, until the underside is golden. Turn and cook the second side. Keep warm. Repeat to make 12 crepes.
  8. Fill the crepes with the seafood mixture and fold. Garnish with the reserved shrimp, basil sprigs, and lemon coronets.
