HOW TO MAKE CREPES WITH TUNA

Step 1:
For the dough: In a bowl, mix the flour and the salt. Melt the margarine in microwave; set aside.

Step 2: Beat the eggs and the milk. Reduce the mixer speed to low and add the flour mixture. Then, add the melted margarine and beat for 2 to 3 minutes to incorporate.

Step 3: Grease a non-stick frying pan with some butter and place over low heat. When the butter starts melting, pour small portions of the dough with a ladle until cover completely the bottom. When the first side starts to turn slightly golden, flip with a spatula and cook about a minute or until golden. Repeat the process until the dough runs out.

Step 4:
For the filling: Season the tuna with oregano and pepper and set aside.

Step 5: In a saucepan, add the olive oil, chopped onion and the chopped garlic. Sauté over low heat until the onion starts to turn slightly golden. Add the tuna, stir and simmer about two minutes. Pour the béchamel, mix well and cook about two minutes.

Step 6: Add small portions of the filling over the crepes, sprinkle with chopped parsley and lift both folded edges of the crepe and fold them over the filling, forming a cone.

    Delicious! Many years ago when I was a teen my mother & I used the make something very similar. Only ours had a cream sauce on top & were baked. I sauteed some celery along with the onion, chopped fine. Also added some shredded Parm & Swiss. So good!
