and cook until onions are tender & translucent about 5 minutes.
Add vermouth and cook another minute. Stir in fl our and cook for
1 minute, constantly stirring. Gradually stir in 1½ of milk. Bring to
a boil, stirring frequently. Reduce heat to low and simmer until the

cup of the seafood mixture down the center of the crepe. Roll up the
crepes and place them seam side down in the pan. Stir parsley and

2 cups Milk
1/3 cup Canola Oil
5 tablespoons Butter melted plus extra for pan.
Place the fl our and sugar in a medium-mixing bowl. Slowly whisk
in the milk, egg, oil, and butter. Heat a nonstick pan or crepe pan over
moderate heat. Pour ¼ cup of the crepe batter into the center of the
hot pan and tilt it in all directions. The batter should coat the pan in a
light covering. After about 30 seconds, the bottom side of the crepe
should be lightly browned and the crepe should be ready to be fl ipped.
Shake the pan in order to release the crepe, and then turn it by using
a spatula. Cook the crepe for an additional 15-20 seconds and then
