If you’ve ever ordered Lobster Raviolis or pasta with a Lobster Sauce from an Italian Restaurant and they prepare it right, it truly is stunning. It can be prepared several different ways but it usually always has cream. You can even put roasted tomatoes in it if you’d like but I like it best prepared the way I show you in this video recipe. There’s also a nice touch of almond in the sauce that tastes real sweet thanks to the added Amaretto. You’ll swear you’ve died and gone to Italian Heaven.
Also, be sure to check out my Mussels Recipe down below and my Shrimp Scampi. Both dishes are a fantastic side dish or appetizer to compliment any pasta recipe. And if you’re interested in the Seafood Scissors I use to cut the Lobster Tails, CLICK HERE.
That’s right I said it, “The Best”, Hands down, Fried Ravioli Recipes…I made it up, it was my first time, and they were fantastic; so put that in your book! By the way, yes I did say with Queso and it doesn’t even matter how these things are usually or traditionally made, if it’s good and everybody loves them, what the hell is the problem? I put Queso inside with the meat and mushrooms and it makes this recipe pop like a firecracker. Of course the fact that these were made from scratch from my pasta recipes, bread crumb wash or my marinara might have a little bit to do with it(I know I’m modest); but I’m telling ya the Queso really makes this work!
Fried Ravioli Recipes Made Easy
Look, I’ve got a step by step tutorial of everything I do to make these succulent Fried Ravioli Recipes. Even the pasta recipe is completely broke down in another video I have on here if you are really needing to get back to basics so you can roll out a Ravioli dough. I touch base about making the Ravioli dough here just a little bit but if you’re needing details and you want a recipe, watch half of this five minute video http://poormansgourmetkitchen.com/making-fresh-pasta-from scratch.html and it’ll get you up to speed. Everything else to make Fried Raviolis is in the video below. Other than the obvious ingredients you need to make a ravioli dough(eggs, flour and salt), all you need to make this work is a meat filler, some vegetables, bread crumbs and some cheese; in this particular case I use Queso! I found an off brand of that Velveta cheese that makes a Chili Con Queso version of their cheese and it is awesome win you mix it with beef. Though I suppose any cheese will do if you are looking for substitutions. In fact, the most important thing I can offer in this recipe truly is the break down of the actual ravioli itself and how to make it so it’s the right texture and consistency of any great Fried Ravioli recipe you’ve ever had. Isn’t that what we’re all really after? So really, you’re welcome to put anything in these pockets you feel you’d like to have in them because the bottom line is really how the Ravioli itself truly turns out once you’ve fried it right? Right! So follow these easy steps and you will have a fantastic turn out with everything you want this recipe to be.
Fried Ravioli Recipes
1 cup all purpose flour
1 cup bread flour
1/2 cup water (tbls’s more if needed)
1 pinch of salt
2 Tbs Olive Oil
1 cup of hamburger
1 tsp chopped garlic
1 scallion stock
1/2 cup finely chopped mushrooms
1/2 Tbs Italian Seasoning (Thyme, Rosemary, Marjoram, Sage, Basil, Savory)
1/2 cup of Queso cheese
Salt and Pepper to taste
1 1/2 cups bread crumbs
Canola oil(1/2 inch in the bottom of a skillet)
The video is self explanatory but I’d like to mention a few tips here that will help these Fried Ravioli Recipes really turn out great. First off, always taste what you’re putting together. This means, after you’ve prepared and cooked the filling, taste it and make sure it’s everything you want it to be. If it’s not, adjust it to your particular tastes, simple right! Second, make sure you’re throwing down some flour on your counter top before you start rolling out your dough and pressing these things together. It’s quite difficult to keep from tearing the pockets apart if you have to literally peal them off of a sticky counter top, and after applying the necessary pressure to keep these things together and keep the filler inside it’s really easy to do if you haven’t laid down enough flour to keep the dough from sticking; kapeesh?! Third, try to find a light fluffy bread crumb if you aren’t making them your self. For these I like to buy the Japanese style breading used for fried shrimp. The fourth and final step is simple, fry with a high heat; 350 plus. The reason you want it hot is so the outside crisps, and the inside stays moist. Just don’t turn it up too high in a skillet before you are ready cause you don’t want a flaming skillet. Marinara, ranch, or more Queso cheese goes great as a final topping or dipping sauce. That being said, enjoy you’re Fried Ravioli Recipes with Queso.
