1/2 cup butter or margarine, divided
2 cups chopped cooked shrimp (about 1 pound)
1 cup (8 ounces) fresh crabmeat
2 green onions, minced
1/4 cup dry vermouth*
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1/2 tablespoon butter or margarine, melted
2 cups (8 ounces) shredded Swiss cheese
Garnish: sliced green onions


Melt 1/4 cup butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add shrimp, crabmeat, and green onions, and sauté for 1 minute. Stir in vermouth, salt, and pepper. Bring mixture to a boil, and cook 7 minutes or until most of liquid is absorbed. Remove mixture from heat, and set aside.

Drizzle 1/2 tablespoon melted butter into a 13- x 9-inch baking dish.

Stir 2 cups Wine-Cheese Sauce into shrimp mixture. Spoon about 3 tablespoons shrimp mixture down center of each Crêpe.

Roll up, and place, seam side down, in prepared dish. Spoon remaining 2 cups Wine-Cheese Sauce over Crêpes. Sprinkle with Swiss cheese, and dot with remaining 1/4 cup butter. Cover and chill for 3 hours. Let stand at room temperature 30 minutes.

Bake at 450° for 20 minutes or until thoroughly heated. Garnish, if desired.
