Lightly beat the eggs in a bowl. Add in the heavy cream and whisk until smooth. Whisk in the coconut flour and turmeric powder until a smooth batter is achieved. This may take a few minutes. Lightly brush a nonstick pan with avocado oil. Ladle in about a quarter cup of the batter and swirl around to coat the pan evenly. Cook over medium heat for 2-3 minutes or until the top is bubbly. Flip and cook for another 30 seconds.

Step 2: Prepare the crepes

Combine water, fish sauce, lime juice, erythritol, minced chili, and chopped cilantro in a mixing bowl. Give it a good stir and set aside.

Step 3: Prepare the dipping sauce

Fill half the hot crepes with the cooked pork and shrimp mixture. Then, fold the empty half over the filling to create the signature shape. Serve with dipping sauce on the side, and enjoy!
