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.

Tranci di pesce spada con patate saltate e gremolataSwordfish Steaks & Sautéed Potatoes with Gremolata

I cooked this dish overlooking the beach at Pescoluse, on the Puglian coast. It’s known as the Maldives of Salento and is a hidden paradise. I used swordfish, but tuna would work well too. Gremolata is a dressing of raw chopped garlic, parsley and lemon zest. It is usually sprinkled over meats, such as osso bucco or carpaccio, but it also makes a great garnish for grilled fish. Always make sure you...

This recipe (like most of my recipes) happened by accident. I was hosting a barbecue party and a friend of mine challenged me to make something that resembled the colours of the Italian flag. I went to the fridge, got hold of everything green, white and red and came up with this masterpiece. Today, it has become one of my signature dishes among my friends and we still enjoy it at every barbecue party....

Crocchette di Barbabietola e SalmoneBeetroot Rosti with Smoked Salmon and Horseradish Cream

I have to admit that I'm not a great lover of beetroot, probably because I don’t particularly like sweet and sour together. This, however, is one of the few ways that I will eat beetroot because it works beautifully with the smoked salmon. If you are a beetroot virgin – here you go, this is the one to try. Make sure that you cook the rostis until they are very crispy.

I have to admit I love any kind of stew. They are so easy to put together and the slow cooking makes all the ingredients taste fantastic. This is a recipe you can prepare 24 hours ahead as it will only enhance the flavours. You can certainly use lamb if you prefer, and if you can't find diced pancetta, a good quality bacon will definitely do the job. I have tried this recipe with chicken or vegetable...

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.

Classica MargheritaClassic Margherita

Most babies are weaned off their mother’s milk with puréed food, I’m sure my mother weaned us off on pizza as I just don’t ever remember life without it. This classic tomato and mozzarella pizza originally was created for the Queen of Naples, Margherita. Never use buffalo mozzarella as it is too milky and will make your pizza base very soggy. Fresh basil is a must: don’t you ever attempt to...
