Seafood ravioli stuffed with Cheddar

Seafood ravioli stuffed with Cheddar

Ingredients
½ cup (125 mL) each, finely chopped cooked shrimp and crab meat
¾ cup (175 mL) shredded Canadian old Cheddar cheese
24 wonton wrappers

Lemon Cream Sauce:
2 tbsp (30 mL) butter
1 cup (250 mL) finely chopped leeks, white and light green parts only
1 tbsp (15 mL) finely grated lemon zest
¾ cup (175 mL) 35% whipping cream
¼ cup (50 mL) reduced-sodium chicken stock
2 tbsp (30 mL) freshly squeezed lemon juice or Vermouth
Salt and freshly ground pepper
¼ cup (50 mL) shaved Canadian Parmesan cheese

In medium skillet, melt butter over medium-high heat until browned and bubbly, but not burnt. Add leeks and lemon zest; sauté for about 3 min or until leeks start to soften. Add cream, stock and lemon juice; cook stirring occasionally for about 2 min or until sauce comes to boil. Remove from heat and season to taste with salt and pepper.
In large wide pot of boiling water, cook ravioli, for about 3 to 5 min or until tender. Remove with a slotted spoon; transfer to shallow bowls. Spoon lemon cream sauce over ravioli; sprinkle with Canadian Parmesan and chives.

  Best Books of the Year

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
