Seafood crepes

One of the steps in this recipe, is to cut the shrimps lengthwise. When these are cooked, they curl up and offer a whole new texture experience not usually found with shrimps. The mix of tarragon and lemon also add to the taste sensation.  You can make your own crepes (see Lobster Crepes recipe) or buy crepes for a faster production. These crepes can also be made with lobster and or crab if you like. Have fun!
