I had to make crepes for my husband for his long anticipated manicotti fest. I had a pile of crepes because I doubled the recipe. What was I thinking? I usually find some life for all those crepes. What would it be this time? Lets see I have asparagus that needs to be cooked... Oh yes and some smoked slamon... and "yogurt cream cheese". The yogurt cream cheese I had bought some time ago and was begging for a new life. BLING. There goes the light bulb. A sort of a sushi with those ingredients. My friend who was coming over the next day was presently surprised by my creation. We dipped them in wasabi mayonaise and or soy sauce with wasabi (I didnt have time to grate the ginger... or maybe I just forgot). Anyway here is the recipe. I am quite sure you could come up with many things to put in this. Would love to hear what ideas you have.


4 oz smoked salmon
1 teaspoon lemon pepper
1 teaspoon garlic powder
8 oz. yogurt cheese or cream cheese
1 lb of asparagus, chopped small and cooked
2 scallions
1 recipe crepes

In food processor combine cream cheese, lemon pepper, salt, garlic powder and salmon. Process until smooth. Spread cream cheese mixture on crepe and sprinkle asparagus across crepe in a line towards one end. Roll so the asparagus is in the center. Sprinkle with scallions.

Crepes (Julia Child recipe)
