  • Yields 8 crepes


2 green onions, chopped
1 tbsp (15 mL) butter
8 oz (250 g) crabmeat
A dash of lemon juice
A pinch of Cayenne pepper
Salt and pepper, to taste
8 thin crepes
1 cup (250 mL) white sauce (béchamel)
Pinch of Grated nutmeg
3/4 cup (180 mL) grated Canadian Mozzarella cheese


In skillet, sauté green onions in butter. Stir in crabmeat and cook over low heat for 2 minutes. Add lemon juice to taste. Add cayenne pepper and season to taste. Remove from heat and stir in 1/2 cup (250 mL) Canadian Mozzarella cheese.

Place crêpes folded in half on working surface. Divide crab mixture evenly and place on one side of crêpe and fold again. Place all 8 crêpes in oven-proof baking dish, coat with white sauce and cover. Bake covered in oven for 10 minutes at 350 °F (180 °C).

Remove from oven, sprinkle with the remaining cheese and grated nutmeg. Return to oven, uncovered, for 2 more minutes until cheese has turned golden and serve.


For a twist, try adding a half-cup of finely chopped, cooked spinach to the white sauce.
