  • Effort: medium



  • 4 red mullet, around 300g each
  • 5 raw tiger prawns, peeled and chopped
  • 16 wonton skins
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • small bunch of tarragon, leaves picked and finely chopped
  • 1/2 bunch of parsley, finely chopped
  • 1 tbsp chopped sun-dried tomatoes, in oil
  • 1 tbsp ricotta cheese

For the sauce vierge:

  • 100 ml extra virgin olive oil
  • 3 tomatoes, blanched skinned and diced
  • 1 shallot, finely chopped
  • juice of 1 lemons


1. Heat a heavy-based frying pan until hot. Add the chopped tiger prawns and fry briefly until the prawns turn opaque.

2. Mix together the chopped prawn, tarragon, parsley, sun-dried tomato and ricotta in a pan, take the pan off the heat and add the tarragon, parsley, dried tomato and ricotta.

3. Place a spoonful of the prawn mixture each in the centre of eight wonton skins. Brush the edges with beaten egg and top with the remaining wontons, sealing the edges well. Use a small circular cutter to cut out circular ravioli.

4. Heat the olive oil in a saucepan. Add the diced tomatoes, shallots and lemon juice and cook, mixing, to make a sauce vierge.

5. Bring a saucepan of salted water to the boil. Add the ravioli and poach for 3 minutes. Drain.

6. Meanwhile, heat a heavy-based frying pan until very hot. Sear the red mullet fillets for a minute on each side.

7. Place the seared red mullet fillets on four warm serving plates. Top each portion with two ravioli and pour some sauce Vierge around the plate. Serve at once.
