Ingredients

  • 500g packet fresh gnocchi
  • 25g butter
  • 1 small leek, washed, trimmed and thickly sliced
  • 200g packet soft cream cheese
  • 2 tbsp tomato purée
  • ½-1 tsp dried chilli flakes, to taste
  • Finely grated zest of 1 lemon
  • 1 tbsp chopped fresh parsley
  • 150g salmon fillet, skinned and diced

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 200°C/fan180°C/gas 6. Bring a pan of lightly salted water to the boil. Add the gnocchi and cook for 2-3 minutes, until cooked. (The gnocchi will float to the surface when they are ready.) Drain and reserve 250ml of the cooking water. Set aside.
  2. Melt the butter in a wide, deep frying pan and gently fry the leek for 3-4 minutes, until soft. Stir in the cream cheese, tomato purée, chilli flakes, lemon zest, parsley and reserved water, until the cheese has melted and everything is combined. Adjust the seasoning.
  3. Add the gnocchi and salmon to the frying pan and stir to coat. Spoon into a deep 1.2-litre ovenproof dish and bake in the oven for 15-20 minutes or until lightly golden on top. Serve immediately.
