Salmon Ravioli with Sage Butter

Salmon ravioli with sage butter - The Neff Kitchen

When dinner comes together this quickly it’s hard to justify not cooking a homemade meal.  It’s a brilliant 15 minute meal and the wonton wrappers make it all too easy.  I’ve only ever eaten salmon ravioli in restaurants and I’m not sure why I haven’t made my own at home.  Using wonton wrappers certainly makes it a simple option to try.

When I saw this dish coming together in the Neff Kitchen, I couldn’t help but think that my boys would love to make these little salmon pillows.  Sure, there will be a few fights over the cookie cutter but it would be a great meal for little helpers.  Perhaps some of my animal cookie cutters will come in handy!



48 wonton wrappers (8cm square)

400g salmon fillet, boned, skin removed, cut into 24 small cubes

4 tablespoons wholegrain mustard

60g butter

1/2 bunch whole sage leaves

Sprinkle of cracked black pepper



Heat Neff Steam Oven to 100°C on steam setting and line perforated steam insert with baking paper.  Lay 24 wonton wrappers on a flat bench and top with each one with 1/2 teaspoon mustard and one piece salmon.  Brush edges with water, top with remaining wrappers and press edges firmly together.  Cut circles using a 6cm round cutter and place ravioli on prepared insert.  Cook for 5 minutes.
