Mother’s Day Crab Ravioli With Lemon Butter

8

Ravioli is pretty delicious anyway, but add some crab, and you turn a nice dish into something worthy enough for a special occasion – the perfect way to treat your mother on Mother’s Day!

 

Preparation time: 35 minutes

Cooking time: 10 minutes

Total time: 45 minutes

Servings: 4

 

Your ingredients:

1 cup of high quality crab meat

1 cup of ricotta cheese

1 teaspoon of coarse salt

1/8 teaspoon of freshly ground pepper

1/8 teaspoon of red-pepper flakes

1 large egg Sprinkle of all-purpose flour

24 ounces of wonton wrappers (about 90 individual wrappers)

2 teaspoons of lemon peel

2 teaspoons of fresh lemon juice

4 tablespoons of unsalted butter

2-3 sprigs of fresh parsley or chervil

 

 

How to make your Mother’s Day Crab Ravioli With Lemon Butter

 

1) In a bowl, mix the crab meat, ricotta, 1/2 teaspoon of salt, the freshly ground pepper, and the red-pepper flakes.

2) Crack the egg into a small bowl, beat lightly, and set aside.

3) Sprinkle a baking sheet with the flour and arrange about half of the wanton wrappers on the floured surface. Keep the remaining wrappers under a damp paper towel to stop them from drying out.

4) Place a teaspoon full of the crab meat mixture in to the center of each wanton.

5) Brush the edges of the wanton wrappers with the lightly beaten egg.

6) Top each wrapper with a reserved wrapper (the ones under the damp paper towel) and press the edges to seal.

7) Cut out squares from each wanton using a cookie cutter (or cut into any shape your like!) Transfer to a baking sheet.

8) Finely chop your lemon peel and juice a lemon (you only need to make 2 teaspoons of juice). 

9) Boil a large pot of water with the remaining 1/2 teaspoon of salt, and add half of your ravioli. Cook for 2-3 minutes, until they rise to the top.

10) While the first batch is cooking, in a large skillet over medium heat, melt the butter until it is frothy.

 


11) Use a slotted spoon to transfer the first batch of ravioli into the skillet, and add 2 tablespoons of the cooking liquid.

12) Add a teaspoon of the lemon peel and a teaspoon of the lemon juice to the ravioli and stir. Transfer to a plate and repeat for the second batch of ravioli.

13) Snip some fresh parsley or chervil with kitchen shears directly on top of the ravioli and serve.

This recipe looks delicious. I never thought of using wonton wrappers to make the ravioli. I am saving this recipe to make in the future.

Ravioli is pretty delicious anyway, but adding some crab is a new idea. I told my wife to cook this recipe and she get surprised because she did not add any crab to Ravioli before. The good news is her opinion has completely changed after she taste the delicious of Ravioli with some crab.

Etta Grace#3

Crab with ricotta cheese is a delicious combination! I have tried this recipe and ended up cutting down on the pepper by half and it suited my tastes perfectly. Using real butter instead of a butter alternative makes it rich and yummy.

Danielle Rutledge#4

Im not a big krab eater but this sounds sooo good! I am wondering if I could use olive oil instead of butter to cook with?

Megg holly#5

I love love love this ravioli recipe! It’s a family all time favourite. find this recipe also works well with smoked salmon, as opposed to the crab meat. it also tastes even better the next day!

I lived in Italy for many years, had pasta every day for lunch, but never came across crab ravioli. Love all kind of pasta and without a doubt I will try your recipe. I am sure it will be delicious and can’t wait to enjoy it with my family.

SherKev#7

This looks amazing and the instructions are laid out perfectly. I may have to leave out the red pepper flakes and I hope that does not alter the taste too much. Etta, did you cut down on both the black pepper and red pepper flakes?

HQR said: Finally - I've Found A Paring Knife That Feels Right And Works As It Should!

For the last eight years or so, I have been trying to find a good replacement paring knife for an antique one that accidentally got thrown away with potato peelings. I've tried a ton of different ones, from dollar store brands all the way to expensive name brand knives. None has worked well for me - either because they don't cut as they're supposed to, or because they just don't feel right in my hand. But this one is perfect!!! It fits in my hand naturally and slips right through foods as I'm peeling and slicing them. It looks beautiful and I love the fact that it has a lifetime warranty in case anything does go wrong. I highly recommend it!

Jessica H said: Best spoon set

Having a dishwasher safe spoon set gives me the freedom to use it anyway I choose and not worry about clean up. I used the vented one for getting my vegetables and it made serving for picky eaters who don't want their food touching,, especially the juice for another food. Effortlessly I drained the vegetables. Thanks for making my life easier and the spoon rest helped to make cooking sanitary. Any cook knows cooking can get messy and you seem to run out of counter space quickly but having the clean surface to quickly put the spoon down.
