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.

Linguine al granchio e proseccoCrab & Prosecco Linguine

Venice’s Rialto Fish Market is a vibrant, bustling place full of amazing fresh produce. I loved the atmosphere – all the locals out shopping and the fishmongers loudly calling out their catch of the day. These guys start work so early that they can often be seen enjoying their lunch with a glass of prosecco by 9am! So you can see where I found the inspiration for this recipe. Fresh crab is paired...

ZUPPA DI PESCE ALL'AMALFITANAAmalfi-Style Fish Soup

You can find wonderful fish soups and stews along the Amalfi coast. They all tend to be hearty, substantial and big on flavour, but there are many variations on the theme, depending on the cook’s preference and what’s available in the market on the day. Here I’ve used a mixture of haddock, red mullet and prawns, but plenty of other types of fish, as well as mussels, squid and clams, are also...

Insalata di Couscous con Olive e AsparagiCouscous Salad With Olives, Asparagus & Grana Padano

Couscous is so easy to prepare, but it does need the addition of some really good flavours to make it come to life. This rainbow salad is a fantastic source of vitamin C and is surprisingly filling. It’s great as a main course or you can reduce the quantities and serve it as a side with barbecued meats or grilled fish.

Pappardelle Con PolpettePappardelle With Meatballs

Rigatoni all’Arrabbiata con SalmoneRigatoni in Spicy Tomato and Salmon Sauce

Arrabbiata means 'angry' in Italian, and I guess they used it to name this dish because of the heat of the chilli peppers in the sauce. The spicier the better for me, but be careful in Italy when asking for this traditional dish to be extra spicy – they will take you at your word. In this recipe the rigatoni can be replaced with penne or any other pasta shape, if you prefer. Just get cooking –...

ZABAIONE AL LIMONCELLO CON FRAGOLEZabaione with Limoncello & Strawberries

Zabaione is an old Venetian dessert traditionally made with Marsala wine (or sometimes vin santo), but here I’ve given it a southern Italian twist by using limoncello – a lemon-flavoured liqueur that is produced mainly in Campania. It’s made from Amalfi lemons, which are famous for their wonderful sweet flavour and fragrance and exceptionally large size. Raspberries are equally delicious with...
