Preparation

Step 1

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Snap off tough ends of the asparagus and cut into 1 inch pieces. Arrange in a steamer basket over boiling water; cover and steam 6 minutes or until crisp-tender. Plunge asparagus into ice water to stop cooking process; drain and set aside.

If using raw shrimp, in large saucepan, bring about 1 qt. of water to a boil. Add shrimp and cook 3-5 minutes. Drain and rinse with cold water. Peel. Set aside. If using frozen pre-cooked, peeled shrimp, thaw and squeeze out excess water.

Melt margarine in heavy saucepan over medium heat. Add scallions and cook 2 minutes, stirring. Whisk in flour; cook 1 minute, whisking constantly. Gradually whisk in milk; cook, whisking, until thick and bubbly. Whisk in salt, pepper, dill and 1/2 c. Parmesan cheese. When blended, reserve 1 c. of the sauce to use later. Stir shrimp and aspargus into the remaining sauce.

Prepare crepes by combining all crepe ingredients but oil; beat. Add oil and mix lightly.

Butter a non-stick skillet. Pour about 1/3 c. crepe batter into skillet. Move the skillet around to allow all uncooked batter to spread to the edges and cook. Gently turn the crepe over to brown on the other side. Remove to a plate.

Spoon about 1/4 c. filling down the center of each crepe. Roll up and place seam-side down in a lightly greased 13x9 baking dish. Spoon remaining sauce over the crepes; sprinkle with remaining 1/4 c. Parmesan cheese. Bake 20 minutes or until thoroughly heated.
