Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • In a medium bowl whisk together egg, milk, flour, 1 tablespoon of the oil, and the salt until smooth. Heat a lightly greased 8-inch nonstick skillet over medium heat; remove from heat. Spoon in 2 tablespoons of the batter; lift and tilt skillet to spread batter evenly. Return to heat; cook for 1 to 2 minutes or until brown on one side only. Invert over paper towels; remove crepe. Repeat with the remaining batter to make eight crepes total, greasing skillet occasionally. Set crepes aside.

  • In a large nonstick skillet heat the remaining 1 tablespoon oil over medium heat. Add leeks; cook for 8 to 10 minutes or until tender and light brown, stirring occasionally. Add Swiss chard and 2 teaspoons fresh or 1 teaspoon dried dill. Cook for 3 to 5 minutes or until chard is tender, stirring occasionally.

I made this recipe for dinner and it was sooo good!! I used an onion instead of leek and frozen kale (about 1 cup) instead of the chard, that is what I had on hand. I cut the salmon in very small pieces like in a tartare since I had a filet. My boyfriend loved it too! Fresh with lots of flavours, light but scrumptious. Thanks so much for this recipe :)
