Combine delicious and fresh seafood to soft and pillowy gnocchi combined with a white wine parmesan sauce.


Units Scale
  • 2 tbsp. unsalted butter
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 shallot, chopped
  • 1 1/2 c. white wine
  • 1 3/4 c. heavy cream
  • 1/2 lemon
  • 2 c. Parmesan Reggiano Cheese
  • 6 oz. large shrimp, cooked ( I cooked about 15 or so pieces of large shrimp)
  • 8 oz. lump crab meat
  • 1 lb. Gnocchi
  • 1/4 tsp. red crushed pepper flakes
  • parsley for garnish


  1. Fill a large pot with water and bring to a boil. Once the water is boiling, add the Gnocchi to the pot and allow to cook for 3-5 minutes. Once all the gnocchi has floated to the top of the pot, remove the gnocchi with a slotted spoon and turn to a large bowl and cover with a paper towel.
  2. To make the sauce, melt the tablespoons of butter on medium-high heat in a deep and large shallow pan. Once the butter has melted, add the chopped shallot and cook for 3-5 minutes until the shallots become translucent. Add the minced garlic and cook the garlic for about 2 minutes until it becomes fragrant.
  3. Add 1 cup of white wine to the garlic and shallots and allow to simmer until reduced by half. Add the other half of the wine and simmer for 2 minutes and add the heavy cream. Allow the cream to simmer for 3-5 minutes on low heat and strain the sauce to remove the garlic and shallots and turn the sauce to a bowl to return back to the shallow pan.
  4. Return the pot back to the burner and bring to a simmer. Add the Parmesan cheese, add the fresh lemon juice, and stir. Turn the sauce down to simmer while occasionally stirring so the milk and cheese don’t stick.
  5. In the shallow pan with the sauce, add the gnocchi, crab meat, and cooked shrimp and simmer together for 5-7 minutes on medium heat. Add the red pepper flakes and season with salt and pepper to taste. Serve and garnish with parsley.
