artichoke hearts, capers, chicken, crêpes, dinner, feta, hearts of palm, kalamata olives, postaday2011, recipe, scallops, shrimp, sun-dried tomatoes
Last week started with me having a small medical procedure (don’t worry, nothing is wrong), Hubster hosting a stomach bug and Pumpkin with a fever. I only cooked two actual meals last week! Half-way through the week, Hubster and I both have both been extra busy with the extra-curricular activities we advisor. So last week my posts were sparse, hopefully this week I’ll be back on track…
The only meat we both eat is chicken and I’m sick of it. I’ve really been enjoying keeping fresh shrimp in my freezer. I made Mediterranean Seafood Crêpes for myself and Mediterranean Chicken Crêpes for Hubster. I made my basic savory crêpes recipe and substituted garlic powder for the nutmeg.
6 crêpes, olive oil, shrimp, scallops, 1 Tbsp. minced onions, 1/2 c. sun-dried tomatoes, 1/2 quartered artichoke hearts, 1/4 c. sliced hearts of palm, 1/2 c. kalamata olives, 1/8 c. capers, 1 tsp. oregano, Feta cheese, 1 c. heavy cream, fresh cracked pepper (I used a four peppercorn blend)
Warm olive oil and add onions. Saute shrimp and scallops until almost cooked. Add cream and tomatoes and bring to a boil. Reduce heat. Add artichokes, hearts of palm, olives and capers and simmer. Remove food from sauce and keep warm. Add Feta and pepper to cream, stirring constantly until well combined. Allow sauce to thicken. Add filling to crêpes and pour sauce over top. Serve immediately.
*For Mediterranean Chicken Crêpes, substitute chicken breast for shrimp and scallops. You could marinate chicken breast in Italian or Greek dressing before hand.
What’s for dinner tonight?
