Description

Shrimp scampi meets ravioli in this elegant and easy recipe – a match made in heaven! Shrimp scampi ravioli is the best of both delicious dinner worlds.


Ingredients

  • 12 large cheese ravioli – the best you can find!
  • 1 tablespoon minced shallots
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 6 tablespoons cold butter, cut into cubes
  • 3/4 cup white wine
  • 12 large shrimp, peeled and butterflied
  • Juice from one lemon
  • Shaved parmesan cheese for garnish

Instructions

  1. Bring a large pot of water to a boil so that it is ready when you want to cook the ravioli.
  2. Add one tablespoon of butter to a medium size skillet and melt over medium high heat. Add shallots and garlic and stir until soft, 2-3 minutes.
  3. Stir in wine and simmer until reduced by half, about 2-3 minutes.
  4. Add the shrimp and cook just until tender, about 3-4 minutes.
  5. Now add remaining butter, cube by cube, stirring until each one is melted into the sauce. Stir in lemon juice.
  6. While the sauce is cooking, add the ravioli gently to the boiling water (I like to lower them in with a slotted spoon) and cook according to package directions until just done, usually about 5 minutes. Remove with a slotted spoon and put in a single layer on a plate until the sauce is finished.
  7. Divide the ravioli between four plates, and add three shrimp to each plate. Spoon a generous portion of sauce over each serving, garnish with shaved parmesan and serve at once!
