Fish Gnocchi - Chef Recipe by Massimo Speroni


Ingredients

250 g white fish (cod or kingfish preferred)
80 g pure cream
80 g egg whites
40 g squid ink
1/4 bunch mint
2 squash
20 g pine nuts
100 ml milk
50 g Pecorino Romano cheese
4 g soy lecithin
2 medium calamari
Extra virgin olive oil

Method

Gnocchi:

Blend fish, pure cream, egg whites and squid ink and sift the mixture through a fine strainer to remove any lumps. Place in a sac à poche and let it rest in the fridge.

Pick the mint leaves, blanch for 1 minute in boiling water and then place under ice cold water. Dry leaves and blend in a processor with extra virgin olive oil. Toast pine nuts for 10 minutes at 160C in oven. Let cool and chop roughly.

Pecorino Romano Foam:

Mix 100 grams milk, 100 ml water and 50 grams of Pecorino. Reheat at 60C for 30 minutes. Sift mixture through a fine strainer and add soy lecithin.

Calamari:

Clean and peel the calamari by separating head from body. Wash and slice legs into pieces.

Wash the squash, cut off the green part and slice into 8 parts.

To Cook:

Use your sac à poche to pour your gnocchi directly into 80C simmering water. Use a sharp knife to cut the gnocchi as it squeezes out.

In the meantime cook your squash and calamari in a separate pan.

Let the gnocchi cook for 1 minute, or until it floats to the surface, plate everything and add dots of puree mint on the top. Sprinkle with pine nuts. Mix the previously reheated 60 ° Pecorino Romano Foam with a stick blender and dollop on top.
