looking for creative but tasty filling for ravioli...about to start experiementing with wonton wrappers.....
found a great lemon saffron cream sauce recip...was thinking shrimp and leeks.....
anyone else have suggestions?
Not sure about ravioli but with wonton I usually blend raw salmon to a nice cream and then add chopped green onion and fill them, cook briefly and they taste wonderful.
wild mushrooms finely chopped sauteed with chopped onions, garlic, marsala, served with walnut pesto and parsley
shrimp, ginger, carrots, mushrooms, and scallions
butternut squash and cinnamon
pumpkin, caramelized onions, sage, and jarlsberg
when you are ready for a few sweeter fillings give these a try;
strawberry puree and ginger paste filling
apple and mint puree
cinnamon pear filling
I usually makeup a batch and refrig until ready to deep fried or if I'm not in the mood for frying a quick dip in a pot of boiling hot water and then a quick saute in a lightly buttered pan. Then a sprinkle of raw sugar. Served warm.
It's not all that creative, but I once used wonton wrappers to make some ravioli with roasted red peppers, wilted spinach and goat's cheese, and they turned out really nicely. A fair amount of work, though. Pumpkin ravioli is nice too.
I love Chef Andrew Carmellini's ravioli, from sweet corn ravioli to his "Grandma's meat ravioli". Here is a recipe for him: Prawn Ravioli with Cockles and Fresh Peas
The beef cheek ravioli from Mario Batali's Babbo restaurant is also fantastic:
