Ingredients
  • RAVIOLI DOUGH
  • 2 cups unbleached flour
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • a little dribble of water until the dough comes together
  • additional egg for egg wash
  • FILLING
  • 2 small lobster tails, pre-cooked and chopped in small chunks
  • 1 lb of medium shrimp, pre-cooked and chopped into small chunks, when combined you should have 2 heaping cups of lobster/shrimp meat
  • 2 garlic cloves, diced
  • 1 large shallot, finely chopped
  • 1 teaspoon, limoncello, or lemon juice
  • ¼ cup of ricotta
  • 1 heaping tablespoon, mascarpone cheese
  • 2 teaspoons, chopped parsley
  • LIMONCELLO CREAM SAUCE
  • 4 Tablespoons of limoncello
  • 2 or 3 tablespoons of lemon juice
  • 1 stick of unsalted butter
  • heavy cream to thicken it up
Instructions
  1. The dough comes together really fast when made in a food processor, put the dry ingredients in and pulse, then put wet ingredients down the tube and process until the dough forms a ball. You can also make it by hand. Wrap dough in plastic wrap and let it rest for 20 minutes. This one batch will make about 30 ravioli.
  2. Pre-cook both lobster and shrimp, then cut into small chunks.
  3. Add olive oil to saute pan, then add garlic and shallot, cook for a couple of minutes, then add in seafood and parsley, toss til coated, then let it cool down.
  4. Put the cooled down mixture into a bowl and add in the ricotta and mascarpone
  5. Roll out your dough and cut into 3 inch circles, brush top with egg wash and place a heaping teaspoon of filling on top.
  6. Fold dough circle in half, into a half moon, and crimp edge with a fork.Place them onto a sheet pan, ready to boil or to be frozen. Freeze them on sheet pan, individually then place into ziplock bag.
  7. For the sauce, simmer the limoncello and lemon juice together, or just plain lemon juice, then whisk in the butter until well incorporated, then pour in a little cream for thickness. You're just spooning on the sauce, not drenching it in sauce. You can double this and make more if you desire.
