Potato Gnocchi With Shrimp Scampi
Potato Gnocchi With Shrimp Scampi
(Gnocchi Di Patate Con Gli Scampi)
 
 
Ingredients:
 
For the Gnocchi:
2 and 1/4 lbs (1 kg) potatoes
7 oz (200 grams) plain flour
1 egg, lightly beaten
2 oz (50 grams) Parmigiano cheese, freshly grated
Salt

For the Sauce:
14 oz (400 grams) large shrimp, peeled and chopped
7 oz (200 grams) tomatoes, peeled and diced
3 and 1/2 fl oz (100 ml) double cream
4 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
1 tablespoon chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
4 tablespoons dry white wine
Salt and pepper
 
Directions:
 
Prepare the Gnocchi:
Cook the potatoes in lightly salted, boiling water for about 25 minutes until tender.
 
Mash with a potato masher while still hot.

Add the flour, egg, Parmigiano cheese and a pinch of salt and knead to a soft, elastic dough.

Divide into several pieces and shape into long rolls about 2/3 inch (1.5 cm) in diameter.

Cut into 3/4 inch (2 cm) lengths and press them gently against the underside of a grater.

Prepare the Sauce:
Heat the olive oil in a frying pan.
 
Add the shrimp and parsley and cook for 2 minutes.

Splash with the wine and cook until it has evaporated.
 
Stir in the cream and tomatoes.

Cook for about 5 minutes, then remove from the heat.

Meanwhile, bring a large pan of lightly salted water to a boil.

Add the gnocchi, a few at a time, and remove with a slotted spoon as they rise to the surface.

Place the gnocchi on a warm serving dish and pour the shrimp sauce over them. Serves 4.
 
That's it!
