Comforting without being too heavy, our easy gnocchi recipe combines the sweetness of prawn meat with ricotta, almonds, Parmesan and the decadent touch of browned butter.

Recipe: Prawn and ricotta gnocchi with browned butter, almonds and Parmesan

Ingredients

400 g ricotta

300 g prawn meat, chopped fine

70 g flour

1 egg

Salt

100 g butter

100 g Parmesan

100 g chopped almonds

Juice of I lemon

2 tbsp chopped parsley

Method

Place the prawn meat in a bowl, add the ricotta and mix until the prawn and cheese are well incorporated.

Add the flour and egg and bring together.

Using a teaspoon, spoon the mixture into your hands and roll into small oval balls.

Place in the fridge to rest for 1 hour.

Bring a pot of salted water to the boil, drop 1 third of the gnocchi balls into the water and poach for 2-3 minutes.

Once they rise to the surface scoop them out and keep them warm in a wide bowl while continuing to cook the remainder of the gnocchi.

In a saucepan, brown the butter, add the chopped almonds and lemon and then pour over the gnocchi.

Dress with Parmesan and parsley and toss through.

Serve warm.
