Add lemon juice & Worcestershire sauce. Season with salt & white pepper.

Place filling in the center of each crepe, roll crepe making certain to fold in the side (this will ensure the filling does not fall out while cooking.)

Crèpes aux Fines Herbes

Place all ingredients together in a large mixing bowl and stir until well combined.
In a large non-stick skillet over medium heat, ladle a very thin layer of batter – just enough to coat the bottom of the pan evenly.
Cook for 30 seconds, then flip with a wooden spatula and cook another 30 seconds.
Remove from the pan and place in a large covered dish to keep warm.
Repeat until all the batter is used.
