Seafood Gnocchi with White Wine Sauce! This easy seafood gnocchi is a delicious dinner made with tender gnocchi, succulent shrimp, and rich crab meat, all tossed in a cheesy white wine cream sauce.
‣ 1 pound gnocchi ‣ 2 tablespoon unsalted butter ‣ 2 shallots, chopped ‣ 2 tablespoon fresh minced garlic ‣ 1 1/2 cup white wine, divided ‣ 1 3/4 cup heavy whipping cream ‣ 2 cup shredded parmigiano reggiano cheese ‣ 1 tablespoon lemon juice ‣ 12 ounce cooked shrimp, peeled and deveined, tail optional ‣ 12 ounce crab meat, fresh or canned
To kick things off, prepare the gnocchi per package instructions. Once cooked and drained, place the gnocchi in a bowl and cover it with a towel to keep it from drying out.
In a large skillet, melt the butter. Toss in the shallots and cook until tender, then do the same with the garlic.
Add a portion of the white wine to the skillet, then let it simmer until it’s reduced. Add the rest of the white wine and let it simmer for a few minutes longer.
Pour in the heavy whipping cream, then let it simmer again, stirring occasionally.
Strain the sauce to through a mesh strainer, then discard the garlic and shallots. Return the strained sauce to the skillet.
Toss in the parmigiano reggiano cheese and lemon juice and let the sauce simmer a final time.
Add the gnocchi, shrimp, and crab meat to the skillet.
Cook and stir everything together until heated through.
