This post is a part of a yearlong partnership with The National Shrimp Council.

Let’s be honest, I’m always excited to share recipes with you. When I develop a recipe and it turns out amazing, I’m so energized and thrilled and then get so out of control excited to share it with you, it’s kind of annoying.

The second time I made this recipe and it came together, I was jumping up and down. This dish combines three of my major loves: shrimp, gnocchi and Alfredo sauce. And it’s easy to make.

Don’t forget to check out my other recipes that include shrimp including these Spicy Shrimp Spring Rolls and this Red Pepper and Garlic Shrimp Pasta!

After the mushrooms are cooked, remove them and clean the pan.

After the mushrooms are cooked, now’s the time to add the gnocchi to the pot of boiling water.

Shrimp Alfredo Gnocchi Recipe

Yield: Serves 4

Prep Time: 18 minutes

Cook Time: 12 minutes

Total Time: 30 minutes

Ingredients:

  • 4 Tablespoons butter, divided
  • 4 ounces mushrooms, sliced
  • soy sauce
  • 3/4 pound shrimp, if frozen
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 pound package of DeLallo Mini Potato Gnocchi
  • 1/3 cup heavy cream
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 zucchini, diced
  • 1 green onion, sliced

Directions:

  1. Bring a pot of water (with a generous amount of salt) to a boil.
  2. Add 1 Tablespoon of butter to a skillet and turn the heat to medium high. Melt the butter and add sliced mushrooms and a couple splashes of soy sauce. Cook the mushrooms for about 5 to 6 minutes, or until the liquid is cooked away and the mushrooms are cooked and browned. Remove the cooked mushrooms and set aside. Wipe the pan clean with a paper towel (if using stainless steel cookware, rinse with warm water being careful as you do it and then wipe dry).
  3. Add the gnocchi to the pot of boiling water and set a timer (use the directions on the package) to ensure you don’t overcook the gnoochi.
  4. Prep the shrimp, pat dry with paper towels and season the shrimp with salt and pepper.
  5. Add 2 Tablespoons of butter to the skillet and turn the heat to medium. Melt the butter and add the seasoned shrimp and garlic. Cook for 2 to 3 minutes, be sure to flip the shrimp too. Remove the shrimp and set aside.
  6. Add the remaining butter and half of the green onions. Add heavy cream and cook for 2 minutes. Add cheese and the diced zucchini. Cook for 1 minute. Turn off the heat and add gnocchi and mix thoroughly. Add back the shrimp and the mushrooms. Mix again and serve with additional Parmesan cheese and green onions on top.
