I started this blog so my daughters could find all of our family favourite recipes in one place. It has actually grown into more than just the family favourites but also other recipes we've tried out in our kitchen. I don't like to fill up the post with alot of chatter. Sometimes there's a little story to tell, but usually I like to get right to the point. So this is for them, but hope you find some recipes that you like as well. I'll be sharing a lot of recipes, and along the way you'll find some crafty things and maybe some helpful hints too! Welcome!

Shrimp St Jacques Tortillas

Does anyone remember the old Magic Pan restaurant? This recipe is reminiscent of their Crepes St Jacques which I loved but with tortillas instead of crepes. Kale tortillas... did anyone even use kale in the 70's?!?
1 lb cooked shrimp, cut in 1/2" pieces
1/3 cup white wine
1 tbsp chopped chives and/or garlic shoots
1 tsp minced garlic
3 tbsps butter
3 tbsps flour
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp garlic powder
1  1/2 cups 10% cream
3/4 cup shredded Swiss cheese
paprika and parsley to garlish
12 tortillas, store bought or homemade
First off I have to tell you about these garlic shoots.  My garlic was starting to grow so I stood a few buds in a small glass and they started to grow taller. I just snipped some of the shoots off for a mild garlic flavour. But you could use all chives instead.
Ok so combine white wine, chives/garlic shoots and minced garlic and simmer 3-5 minutes. 
Remove from heat and add the shrimp.
In a large skillet melt the butter, stir in the flour, garlic powder and salt. Cook over medium heat for 1 minute then whisk in the cream and cook 2 minutes or until thickened. Add the shrimp mixture.
For the assembly, spoon about 3 tbsps of the filling into each tortilla and fold into a packet. Place on a parchment lined sheet seam side down.. I used my Fresh Homemade Kale Tortillas and have linked the recipe at the end of this post, but use any tortillas here.
Spoon any remaining sauce/shrimp on top then add the cheese...
and a sprinkle of paprika
Bake at 350°F for 10-12 minutes or until cheese melts.
Garnish the plate with parsley and more shrimp.
These packets may be frozen. Just defrost in the fridge overnight before re-heating.
