    Paua raviolli with beurre blanc.

    So finally got to put veitnamcam's paua to use,

    Made some ravioli out of it!
    Here's the recipe, note it is a bit labor intensive but well worth it, it's rich, meaty and incredibly tender.

    Ingredients:
    1kg of paua, finely chopped
    1 fillet of white fish (i used a hoki loin)
    3 eggs
    200g of flour
    A lot of butter
    300ml of cream
    2 cups white wine
    1 tomato, skin removed, seeds removed, finely chopped
    Fresh thyme
    A bulb of garlic
    2 onions
    Olive oil

    In a food processor, combine 2 eggs and 200g of flour until a dough ball is formed. Refrigerated until needed.
    Add the paua, fish and egg to the food processor along with 2 cloves of minced garlic and a tablespoon of olive oil, season with salt and pepper and whiz up until very smooth, then add 100ml of cream and continue mixing until it lightens.
    Finely dice and onion and sweat over low heat with some olive oil and 3 or 4 sprigs of thyme, finely chopped. Once onion is clear, put in a bowl until cold and then combine with the paua.

    Cut the dough in half, roll each piece out as thin as humanly possible, spoon out the paua mixture onto one of the sheets, each spoonful should have a few centimetres of space from the others.
    Lay the other sheet over the top and press it down, remove as many air bubbles as you can, with a sharp knife, cut the ravioli out and set it aside.

    In a hot pan, add the white wine, a tablespoon of peppercorns, a bulb of garlic (just whack them wit your knife, skin and all) and a big handful of thyme. Reduce the wine by half then add the rest of the cream, reduce that by half. Add 150g of butter piece by piece, making sure each piece is completely melted before adding the next.
    Strain and add the tomato flesh.

    In a pot of boiling salty water, add the ravioli and cook until the inside is firm.
    Optionally you can brown them in a pan with some butter once cooked.
    Spoon over the sauce and eat

    Best tasting paua i've ever had!

    I second that motion. All in favour? Pure genius Angus.
    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    Worst thing known to be invented by man Toby. Killed meaningful conversation in most households.

    Cheers guys! Will be tackling some venison heart either tomorrow or the day after, depends what a friend is doing (she has requested to be taught how to not fuck up a roast chicken ) But i'll flick the recipe up if it doesn't suck.
