  • Make the ravioli: Lightly flour a baking sheet. Working in batches, arrange 45 wonton wrappers on a work surface; keep remaining wrappers covered with a damp paper towel. Mound 1 teaspoon crab filling in the center of each. Brush edges of wrappers with egg wash, and top each with another wrapper. Press edges to seal. Cut out circles using a 2 1/4-inch cookie cutter; transfer to baking sheet.

  • Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Working in 2 batches, cook ravioli until they rise to the top, 2 to 3 minutes.

  • Meanwhile, make the sauce: Heat a large skillet over medium heat. Melt 4 tablespoons butter, and heat until just bubbling and frothy. Transfer first batch of ravioli to skillet using a slotted spoon, along with about 2 tablespoons cooking liquid. Add 1 teaspoon chopped lemon peel and 1 teaspoon juice, and swirl to combine. Transfer to plates.

  • Repeat with second batch of ravioli. Garnish with chervil.

Cook's Notes

Uncooked ravioli can be frozen for up to 3 months (boiling time may be a few minutes more with longer freezing).
