Ingredients

For the saffron broth:

  • 2 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
  • 1 pinch nutmeg
  • 2 Cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 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.

 

Potato Gnocchi Shopping Tip

Italian food is about simplicity and letting the ingredients shine. So make sure you get ingredients that are great quality and flavor. Farmers markets and specialty stores will have great produce and products. Just be sure to have some great olive oil.

Potato Gnocchi Cooking Tip

Unlike other highly regarded cuisines, Italian cooking is usually simple to make with many dishes having only 4 to 8 ingredients. Italian cooks rely chiefly on the quality of the ingredients rather than on elaborate preparation.
