Today I was up for something easy and quick, yet very fancy. Smoked salmon was excellent choice. Everything was ready in less than a hour. Recipe for gnocchi are from Coolinarika, they are made without potatoes, but you’d never guess. They are so tender and light, almost melting in your mouth. Whole dish can be described in just one word: perfection…

 

Ingredients:

 

For gnocchi:

 

  • 2,5 dcl water
  • 70 gr butter or 1,5 tbsp oil

Put them into the boiling water and cook just until they rise to the surface. Take them out with colander, place them in a clean pot and splash with oil to prevent sticking.
