Ravioli filled with Smoked Salmon & Ricotta

About This Recipe

Are you looking for a delicious salmon recipe with a difference? If you are, you’ve found it! Here’s my ravioli filled with smoked salmon & ricotta for you to enjoy.

When I was a child, eating smoked salmon was always a massive treat because it was so expensive. It’s cheaper now, but still fantastic. Just take care when seasoning the dish because the salmon is already salty.

Feast your eyes on the finest ravioli filled with smoked salmon & ricotta! It’s straightforward and fun to make this great dish. Simply follow the instructions below and get the perfect result.

Step By Step

First make the filling. Place all the ingredients in a large bowl and mix together with a fork. Season with salt and pepper. Cover with cling film and refrigerate for 10 minutes.

Flatten the dough so that it can fit through the rollers of a pasta machine. Flour lightly on both sides and pass it through the machine several times, from the widest setting to the thinnest. Keep it floured at all times. If you don’t have a pasta machine, roll the pasta by hand with a rolling pin on a lightly floured surface until it is 2mm thick.

Lay the pasta sheet on a well-floured surface. Put teaspoonfuls of filling at 4cm intervals across half of it. Brush the spaces between the filling with the beaten egg. Fold the empty half of the dough over the top and press down between the mounds of filling to make self-contained parcels. Use a pastry wheel or knife to cut between the parcels, leaving a 5mm border around each one.

Cook the ravioli in a large pan of salted water for 3 minutes (doing them in batches if necessary). Drain and place on a large serving plate. Season with a little salt and pepper, drizzle over the oil and sprinkle with paprika.

Once you’re done, simply sit back and enjoy your ravioli filled with smoked salmon & ricotta and don’t forget to check out other great authentic Italian recipes including great antipasti recipes, Italian pasta recipes, Italian soup recipes, Italian beef dishes and authentic pizza recipes.

CuccioloneChocolate Ice Cream Sandwich

Chocolate ice cream sandwiched between two cookies – what more do you need from life?! Kids love cucciolone, and in my experience they really enjoy getting involved in making them too. You can use any cookies you like for cucciolone. Here I used choc chip cookies, which worked very well. I’ve also tried the same recipe with peanut and caramel cookies and it was delicious.

Cannelloni al Pesto GenoveseCannelloni with Pesto and Béchamel Sauce

Cannelloni was invented in Sorrento in the early 1900s by a chef from Naples. Today you’ll find a recipe for it in many Italian cookery books, so I had to include a version here. As you'll see, this is a traditional-style cannelloni with a bit of a twist, and I think you will love the result.

Bruschette con crema d’avocadoAvocado & Smoked Paprika Bruchette

Believe it or not, I tasted my first avocado when I came to England and, contrary to the popularity of ‘tricolore salad’ in Britain, in Italy, this dish just doesn’t exist. On its own, avocado can often be bland but it’s fantastic in salads or with a spicy dish. I wanted to create a recipe with this fruit, as it has an extremely high nutritional value and helps provide many general health benefits....

This has to be the ultimate vegetarian pasta recipe. There’s so much goodness in this dish and it’s also really filling and extremely tasty.

Spiedini di AgnelloSkewered Marinated Lamb with Rosemary & Mint

Often people have this misconception that you can only make meat skewers in the summer and cooked on a BBQ – this is not the case.  Make sure once the skewers are ready to be cooked that your griddle pan is very very hot to enable the meat not to get stuck to the pan.  Use sirloin steak if you prefer and if you don’t like mushrooms substitute it with shallot onions.
