Seafood Crepes with a Lemon Dill Sauce

Could it be? My grand return to the blog? Let's talk about my dinner and then I'll fill you in on my absence.

I can't pretend that I made those beautiful crepes. I found them in the produce department at Kroger. This recipe would be much more impressive had I made crepes myself. But given my eminent birth to an 8lb baby...I think you'll give me a pass. Here's what I did with the store bought crepes.

filling: (this will sound familiar)
1 lb ground sausage, browned *1 block of cream cheese * 1 cup of lump crab meat * 2 teaspoons of season it up. mixed well.

spread filling along with 3 steamed asparagus spears over the crepe, roll up and cook over the griddle at 350.

For topping/sauce:
melt 1/2 stick of butter together with a 1/2 cup of olive oil. Season peeled shrimp (1 lb) and drop into oil/butter mixture. When shrimp begins to pink, add 2 tsp of flour and use whisk to make sure everything gets mixed well. Once the butter/flour mixture begins to thicken, add 1 cup of chicken stock and continue to whisk. incorporate 1/2 cup of half and half. Add chopped dill, lemon zest and about 2 tbsp lemon juice.

top the browned crepes with shrimp and sauce.

This took less than 20 minutes to cook and we loved it. My daddy said "I don't like crepes. Well, I never had any." He's a convert!!

Thanks for putting up with my absence. As many of you know I'm very pregnant. I have a section scheduled for next tuesday September 1. One of the pregnancy symptoms I've had has been a strong craving for foods I don't always eat....fresh fruit, vegetables (I mean who craves celery??) I've found myself eating probably 80% vegetarian. What kind of princess of bbq does that???

I planned a grand return to the blog a few weeks ago and gave up when my caramelized endive and riddicho was NASTY. I hope that I'm getting back to what we all like. But please be patient. I've got to get this baby here! I plan to be cookin in Cleveland at Octoberfest...well, I'll be there!
