Gnocchi With Dill & Lemon Fresh Herb Sea Salt Seasoning

Gnocchi with mashed peas, asparagus, dill & lemon fresh herb sea salt seasoning and creme fraiche

A lot of people don't like to eat gnocchi during the summer - but I absolutely love this dish - it's so fresh with the dill and lemon and is perfect during the asparagus season.  The recipe is courtesy of Mob Kitchen who you can find on Instagram - I have adapted it for our Dill & Lemon fresh herb sea salt seasoning - tried, tested and thoroughly recommended!



160g frozen peas



500g Fresh Gnocchi (3 servings)

3 tbs Creme Fraiche

80 g grated parmesan (make it easy - grind it up in the Nutribullet!)

2 tbs unsalted butter

Olive Oil

1 heaped tsp of The Fresh Herb Salt Company Dill & Lemon fresh herb sea salt seasoning

  • Take a handful of peas from the 160g and set aside.  Put the rest into a Nutribullet, add 1 heaped tsp of Dill & lemon fresh herb salt and blend until you have a nice smashed look.
  • Trim and slice the asparagus diagonally and roughly chop a handful of basil leaves.
  • Boil some water in a large pan with a small amount of salt.  Add the gnocchi and once they float to the top, fish them out, set aside and toss in olive oil.
  • Keep a mug of the pasta water to onside.
  • Blanch the asparagus and that extra handful of peas in the pasta water for 1 minute, drain and set aside.
  • In a large frying pan, add a shot of olive oil, get it nice and hot and then add the gnocchi and toss them around until just golden brown.  Keep them moving so they don't burn.
  • Add the butter and cook until the gnocchi is glazed and looking nicely browned.
  • Add a splash of the saved cooking water, smashed peas, creme fraiche and toss all together adding a little more water if needed.  This creates a beautiful green sauce.  Season with pepper, a little more lemon zest if required, parmesan, the blanched veg and chopped basil.
  • Toss it all together and divide between warm plates.   Gnocchi is very filling so don't let your eyes get bigger than your tummies!!!
