A couple of weeks ago I wrote about one of my favorite things to cook: crepes. (I admit, making crepes is not necessarily a lazy process, but if you've never made them before you might be surprised by how simple the technique is—very similar to making pancakes.) As promised in that post, here is one of my favorite crepe filling recipes. This simple sauté of shrimp, tomato, and chives is also delicious served over rice.
p.s. This crepe filling was inspired by San Francisco's beloved Ti Couz restaurant, which closed back in 2011. Miss ya, Ti Couz. 16th Street just isn't the same without you!

- 1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
- 3 tablespoons chopped chives
- 8-10 crepes
- In a large skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat until hot but not smoking.
- Add onions and cook for 2 to 3 minutes, stirring occasionally, until they start to soften.
- Add shrimp, tomatoes, wine, salt, and pepper. Simmer and stir until shrimp turns pink, 5 to 7 minutes.

- Remove from heat and stir in chives.
- Place some shrimp mixture into each crepe, roll up, and serve.
