Crepes with Smoked Trout

You know my love for light meals- and anything to do with smoked salmon and smoked trout is a winner. Browsing through my "Simply Heaven" cook book by philadephia cheese, I saw this recipe that I knew that it would be perfect for lunch on a Sunday afternoon.

I rarely chose smoked trout because I prefer the stronger taste of salmon. However, in this case, I find that trout is a great (and cheaper) substitute as the cream cheese provided abit of a zing (together with the rind of a lemon- u can choose to use lime). One thing that surprised me was the addition of tabasco sauce, but that really fitted in very well with the sauce. I probably would put less cream cheese next round as well.

Crepes with Smoked Trout (it says served 4 but served 2!) 
1/2 cup of flour
2 eggs
3/4 cup of milk ( I used soy and it was ok)
2 tsp of oil

250 grams of light cream cheese (i think reduce to 200 grams)
1/4 cup of sour cream (I obmitted this)
1/4 cup of chopped chives
1 lemon juiced and rind
few drops of tabasco sauce
250 grams of smoked trout

Salad for serving

Whisk flour, eggs, milk and oil to form a smooth batter. Stand for 30 minutes

Pour 2-3 tablespoon of mixture into a grease crepe pan (I used normal pan). Cook crepe till set on top. Turn it over. Continue to make more crepes

Combine cream cheese, chives, lemon rind and juice, tabasco and trout together. Divide mixture and wrap the filing into each crepe. Serve with salad.
