Saucy Turkey Crepes
Featuring bite-size turkey breast with broccoli soup and a variety of flavorful herbs, making these turkey crepes will become a new post-Thanksgiving tradition!

Ingredients
Preparation time: 1 hour and 15 minutes

Crepes:

1 cup all-purpose flour

1 1/2 cups skim milk

1 large egg plus 2 large egg whites

1/4 teaspoon salt

2 teaspoons corn oil

Cooking spray

Filling:

1 can (10 3/4 ounces) 98% fat-free broccoli cheese soup

1 cup skim milk

2 dashes black pepper

1/8 teaspoon garlic powder

1/4 teaspoon dried chopped onion

1/4 teaspoon dried parsley

12 ounces cooked turkey breast, cut into bite-size chunks

Paprika

Directions
Yield: 12 filled crepes plus 4 extra unfilled crepes
Serving size: 2 filled crepes

1 – To prepare crepes, combine flour, skim milk, whole egg, egg whites, salt, and corn oil in a small bowl. Mix with an electric mixer until the batter is smooth (it will be very thin). Coat a small (about 6 inches across) nonstick skillet with cooking spray and warm over medium heat. Lift skillet from heat and pour in about 3 tablespoons of batter (for a 6-inch crepe). Tilt the pan to spread the batter evenly over the bottom of the pan. Return pan to the heat and cook crepe for 3–4 minutes, or until the top looks dry and the crepe is golden on the bottom. Using a metal spatula, loosen edges of the crepe from the pan and gently turn the crepe over. Cook 30 seconds to 1 minute more. Repeat the process, recoating the skillet with cooking spray after each crepe, to make 16 crepes total. Cover the stack of crepes to keep them warm. Stir batter periodically.

2 – Unfilled crepes freeze well, so they can be made in advance. To freeze crepes, place wax paper between crepes, seal in a zip-top freezer bag, and store on a flat surface in the freezer.

3 – To prepare filling, place soup in a large saucepan. Whisk in milk, pepper, garlic powder, onion, and parsley. Stir in turkey. Simmer over medium-low heat for about 15 minutes; stirring periodically.

4 – To assemble crepes (only 12 are needed for this recipe), lay one crepe on a plate or serving dish. Spoon a little less than 1/4 cup filling down the center of the crepe. Fold over sides of crepe and drizzle the top lightly with sauce from the filling. Sprinkle lightly with paprika. Repeat with 11 more crepes.

5 – If desired, fill 4 remaining crepes with fresh fruit and top with yogurt for a light dessert.

This week’s Diabetic Dish of the Week is Salmon With Cilantro-Lime Salsa. This dish is made using Salmon Fillets, Salt, Pepper, Spices, Olive Oil, Cilantro-Lime Salsa, Garlic Clove, Cherry Tomatoes and more! The Dish 214 calories and 3 net carbs per serving.

Salmon With Cilantro-Lime Salsa
T’ara Smith is the project manager of Beyond Type 2. If you crave a hot low-carb lunch, her delicious Salmon With Cilantro Lime Salsa is for you. Homemade salsa pairs perfectly with the omega-3-rich fish, and the whole entrée takes only about 30 minutes from start to finish.
Ingredients
Preparation time: 10 to 15 minutes
Cooking time: 10 to 15 minute.

Salmon
6-8 ounces skin-on salmon (2 fillets)
1/4 teaspoon each kosher salt and pepper (mixed together)
1/2 teaspoon each chili powder, garlic powder and paprika (mixed together)
1 tablespoon of olive oil
Cilantro-Lime Salsa
1 tablespoon of chopped cilantro
1/2 teaspoon of lime juice
1/2 teaspoon garlic clove
1/4 cup of quartered cherry tomatoes
1 tablespoon of diced red onion
1/2 tablespoon of olive oil
Salt and pepper to taste

Directions
Yield: 2 servings
Serving size: 1 fillet

1. Combine first six ingredients for Cilantro-Lime Salsa in a bowl. Add salt and pepper mixture to taste. Set aside or place in the refrigerator until ready to use.

2. Pat the salmon skin dry with a paper towel. This step is necessary for a nice, crispy skin. Season the skin with half of your salt and pepper mix.

3. Season the flesh side of the salmon with the salt and pepper mix and the chili powder, garlic powder and paprika mix.

4. Heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil in a skillet over medium-high heat.

5. Once the oil is shimmering, place the salmon skin-side down; hold down for 10 to 15 seconds until it relaxes and lies flat.

6. Cook for about 5 minutes over medium-high heat before flipping over. If you feel resistance as you try to flip the salmon, let it cook a couple of minutes longer. Tip: You should be able to slide the spatula relatively easily under the fish when getting ready to flip it.

7. Turn down the heat, flip to the flesh side and let it cook over medium heat for about 3 to 5 minutes, until golden brown. Depending on the thickness of the salmon, you may want to cook it a little longer or less.

8. The fish should be opaque (pink) when done. Test for doneness by slightly cutting open the thickest part of the salmon. If it flakes, you’re done!

9. Serve the salmon topped with the Cilantro-Lime Salsa and your choice of side.
