Georgia Shrimp Ravioli Recipe

shrimp ravioli done This past Sunday I made a big dinner for my family. The much needed dinner party had been planned for weeks, but I wasn’t really sure what I wanted to make until the day of (obviously). My whole family loves Italian cuisine, and being from Savannah, we also love seafood, most particularly “Georgia Shrimp”. So, I decided to combine the 2 and make Georgia Shrimp Ravioli (a little overzealous, I must admit, but sooo delish)! I researched how to make Shrimp Ravioli, and a pulled my inspiration from this recipe, because I love Tyler Florence, & this recipe because I did not want to hand make pasta (who does??). I found that wonton wrappers are a GREAT alterative for ravioli if you cannot make the pasta! See below for ingredients and recipe details:

Ingredients:

  • 2 packets wonton wrappers (for ravioli dough)
  • 1.25 pound Georgia Shrimp (or Gulf Shrimp if you can’t find), shelled & deveined
  • 1 bunch basil leaves
  • 1 bunch chopped fresh chives
  • 3/4 cup grated parmesan
  • 4 garlic cloves
  • 5 tablespoons olive oil
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 2 tablespoons Cento Tomato Paste
  • salt & pepper to taste

Seal the edges together with water, and then crimp edges with a fork. I also bought a ravioli press that I used to cut some of the raviolis.

Remove raviolis & drain, then toss with sauce (after all this work, I couldn’t make my own sauce). To toss, I used my new favorite Scarpetta Tuscan Vodka Sauce (find at Whole Foods, Fresh Market, etc.). Since this is such a rich dish, serve it with a light caprese salad & bread.

We enjoyed this Italian Georgian dish on a rooftop overlooking the Savannah squares. My family all went crazy for this dish, if you enjoying cooking (and shrimp), I would definitely give it a try! Happy Tuesday! xx
