DISH, FLAVORTOWN! , BASIL, SESAME OIL, MAKES THIS DISH FOR LOVERS !!!

VARIATIONS

This dish was added to the menu at Milestones in Ontario, Canada by cupid’s Chef Jason Rosso. They added a drizzle of peanut sauce. All you need is add 2-3 tablespoons unsalted unsweetened creamy peanut butter to 1/3 of the coconut milk mixture and pour on top. Hot jalapino peppers sliced in rings is another addition that gives heat, or, 1 hotter Serrano chili, seeded and sliced. SUBSTITUTION: The recipe calls for chili flakes. They are not common in all regions. I used red pepper flakes. You can use chili powder if you wish, or a combination of both.

A Lobster’s Tale ~by Ravioli

Lobster Ravioli in Garlic Butter Sauce

Paper thin pasta filled with succulent lobster, swimming in butter.

Lobster_Ravioli

INGREDIENTS

  • Two – 8-ounce raw lobster tails, shelled and sliced into 1/3-inch pieces
  • 25g fresh root ginger
  • Lemon juice
  • Pinch of cayenne pepper
  • 1 egg
  • Sea Salt

For the Pasta Dough:

  • 2 1/2 cups all-purpose unbleached flour
  • 4 Eggs
  • Water

For The Sauce:

  • 60ml vegetable stock
  • 1 knob of butter
  • 20ml sherry vinegar
  • 5 ml soy sauce
  • OR Classic – (combine) 5 to 10 garlic pods diced in grape seed oil.( or your preferred oil) with 3- 6 tablespoons of clarified butter.

INSTRUCTIONS

1.Begin by making the sauce. Reduce the vegetable stock with the butter until it coats the back of a spoon. Combine the vinegar and soy and reduce by half. Add a little of this to the stock until you can just taste it poking through (take care as the vinegar is potent). Reserve the remaining soy vinegar. SAUCE #2: We used a red curry sauce from the freezer. It was excellent. Simple melted butter works well too. Or SAUCE #3: combine butter, oil and garlic. The proportions are to your palate.

2. Bring a large pan of water to the boil. Blanch the tail in the boiling water for 10 seconds (and the pincers for 15 seconds-if you are using them). Recover the meat from each part, chill for 1 hour and then cut into 1cm cubes.

3). NEXT, make the raveoli ( open the package of wontons) combine the lobster with cooked salmon, if you like ( Chef Ramsay’s version). You may add an egg to bind the meat. Spoon in the lobster on your ravioli. Baste edges with water and pinch together. I double seal by pressing the glass rim on top of the raveoli. It makes fast work of it. Pre-made wonton squares are ideal. Cook filled raveoli in boiling water until they rise to the top. Plate, sauce it up and serve hot. ( 3-6 per person). YUM!

2 out of 3 diner guests agreed the curry ravioli was tops! Find Bobby Fley’s curry raveoli …if its online. We did taste it once..Double yum!❤

FOOD TIPS

Substitute wonton wraps for PASTA dough. Easy!

WINE PAIRING (New!)

What wine should I serve?

The ideal wine depends on how the ‘LOBSTER‘ was prepared and what types of sauces or side dishes will accompany the main course. Recenlty, I completed a WINE AFICIONADO course to explore new wines and visit old classics. It was very enjoyable! My WINE SUGGESTION for Lobster Ravioli: White: Burgundy Chardonnay, White: Californian Chardonnay, Red: Argentinian Malbec
