At RIU we are going to give you another recipe to add to this family book that can be passed down from one generation to the next, helping you to form part of your family’s culinary legacy. The delicacy chosen on this occasion is “Ravioli with passion” the star dish at the Riu Palace Mexico hotel. Do you want to find out what is hidden behind this name? Why not pick up a pen and paper and read on.
Firstly you will need to take a trip to the supermarket to buy the following ingredients:
- 20 pieces of round wonton pasta
- 2 eggs
- 500g of portobello mushrooms
- 4 green apples
- 250g of foie gras
- 400g of butter
- 400g of passion fruit pulp
How is this delicacy prepared?
The first step is to fry the portobello mushrooms in olive oil (20%) and vegetable oil (80%) at 60ºC for ten minutes. Afterwards, remove the excess oil and cut the mushrooms into small cubes together with the pealed apple. Take out a flat bottomed wok and make fois gras terrine pearls.
Once we have prepared this, fill the wonton pasta with the foie pearl we have just made, along with the apple and the portobello mushrooms, brush the edges with egg and seal them with the help of a round cutter. Once we have filled the pasta we will cook it in boiling water for 3 minutes.
Now take a frying pan, add olive oil and fry a sliced shallot, add butter and the pulp from the crushed passion fruit. Once we have prepared the mixture, add the ravioli, lightly fry the mixture and serve.
