|Key words:||shrimp, pasta||Category:||Main Dishes|
1 8-oz can water chestnuts, drained
8 oz peeled, deveined shrimp
1 garlic clove minced
1 scallion, minced
2 tsp minced fresh ginger
1 tsp soy sauce
1/2 tsp sugar
salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
1 package wonton wrappers (36 3" squares)
1/4 c coarsely chopped fresh cilantro or scallion greens
Roasted Red Pepper Sauce
|Preparation:||Finely chop the water chestnuts in a food processor and transfer to a mixing
bowl. Puree the shrimp in the food processor. Add the garlic, scallion, ginger, soy sauce, sugar, and salt and pepper and puree again. Stir the shrimp mousse into the water chestnuts. Correct the seasoning, adding salt to taste: The mixture should be highly seasoned.
(To taste the mixture for seasoning without eating raw shrimp, cook a tiny bit of mousse on the end of a spoon in boiling water.)
Prepare the Roasted Red Pepper Sauce.
Bring 4 quarts of water to a boil in a large pot for cooking the ravioli.
Spread a few wonton wrappers on a work surface. Lightly brush the edges with water. Place a teaspoon of shrimp mousse in the center of each and fold in half on the diagonal. Starting at one end and continuing to the other, seal the edges by gently patting with your fingers. It's important to make a hermetic seal. Assemble the remaining ravioli in this fashion. Transfer the finished ravioli to a cake rack.
Cook the ravioli in the boiling water until the pasta is translucent and the filling is firm and white, about 2 to 3 minutes. Drain the ravioli in a colander. Spoon the Pepper Sauce on plates or a platter and arrange ravioli on top. Sprinkle with cilantro or scallion greens and serve at once.
|Notes:||Makes about 36 ravioli, which will serve 9 as an appetizer or 4 to 6 as an entree.
