Ingredients

For the saffron broth:

  • cloves garlic, crushed
  • 3  Tablespoons  shallots, chopped
  • 1  Tablespoon  sage
  • Pinch saffron
  • Kosher salt, to taste
  • Fresh ground pepper, to taste
  • 4  Cups  fish broth or chicken stock

For the potato gnocchi:

  • 3  Pounds  yukon potatoes
  • pinch nutmeg
  • 2  Cups  all-purpose flour
  • eggs
  • 1/4  Cup  extra virgin olive oil
  • 2  Tablespoons  shallots, minced
  • 12  Ounces  mussels
  • 8  Ounces  shrimp
  • 8  Ounces  calamari
  • 4  Cups  saffron broth
  • 1/4  Cup  heavy cream
  • 2  Tablespoons  unsalted butter
  • Cilantro, for garnish
  • Kosher salt, to taste
  • Freshly ground pepper, to taste

Directions

For the saffron broth:

Put all the ingredients in a large saucepot; let them boil in a medium low temperature for about 30-40 minutes. 

Strain and reserve.

For the potato gnocchi:

Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Peel potatoes and add to pot. Cook until tender but still firm, about 15 minutes.

Drain, cool, and mash with a fork or potato masher. Combine 1 cup mashed potato, nutmeg, flour, and egg in a large bowl. Knead until dough forms a ball. Shape small portions of the dough into long "snakes." On a floured surface, cut snakes into half-inch pieces.

Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Drop in gnocchi and cook for 3 to 5 minutes. Once the gnocchi have risen to the top of the boiling water, strain, and set aside.

In a large sauté pan over medium heat, add the olive oil and shallots. Once the shallots are caramelized about 6 to 8 minutes, add all the seafood and the saffron broth.  

Reduce liquid by a half in volume, and then add the cream and butter creating a creamy sauce. Add to sauce to coat and finish cooking about 1-2 minutes. Scoop into 4 bowls and garnish with cilantro leaves.
