For the béchamel sauce
- 2c milk
- 6T butter
- 1/2c flour
- pinch nutmeg
- pinch salt
For the filling
- 1/2 lb robiola or farmer's cheese
- 1/2 lb Wild for Salmon Sockeye Salmon, cooked & flaked
- small handful of parsley, freshly chopped
To make the béchamel sauce, first melt the butter, then add the flour incrementally while stirring. This makes a roux. Add milk in a little at a time, stirring constantly until all milk is in pan and sauce is thick. Remove from heat and set aside.
In a bowl, place the cheese, salmon (previously cooked & flaked) and chopped parsley. Stir ingredients until blended. Place a spoonful of filling in the center of the crepe, fold in half and then half again, making a triangle shape. Place béchamel sauce in the bottom of a casserole dish, layering each crepe in the dish. Then cover the crepes with more béchamel sauce. Top with grated or shaved parmigiana reggiano cheese.
Bake in an oven preheated to 375 degrees for half an hour or till golden and bubbly on top. Garnish with fresh parsley.
