Seafood Crepes With A Garlicky Béarnaise Butter Sauce

Oh, hello, pancake day! 🥞

Am I pushing it by posting seafood crêpes?… because, in all honestly, I’m a savory over sweet kind of girl!! 😜 

Filled with plump, juicy prawns and scallops, the sauce is made using Béarnaise butter @sublimebutter and garlic, leeks, shallots, cream, nutmeg, a hint of cayenne pepper @bartingredients for some heat, as well as a dash of sherry and chopped dill for freshness.

These crêpes are soooo decadent, indulgently satisfying, lick your plate deliciously, and worth every FLIPPIN’ (pun intended) calorie!  They make an impressive starter for a dinner party and are perfect for a special occasion brunch paired with a leafy green salad.

No… I didn’t deprive my kiddos of pancakes for brekkie today… they still indulged in homemade crêpes with Nutella (of course), but really, I don’t even have the urge to take one. Bite… for me; it’s savory all the way!!

A surprisingly easy recipe, ready in under 30 minutes if you have your crêpes premade.  Go on, give these a go.. you won’t be disappointed!

So… are you team savory like me or team sweet???
