A good dish that could have been even better. I agree with Lynda Q that the amount of paprika was overkill. Less would be better and none better yet. Otherwise an interesting and tasty dish, largely because of the exotic flavor of saffron. Pairing the shrimp with the gnocchi was unexpected and delicious.
I wanted to like this more, but I found the paprika overpowering, but not in a flavorful way. Maybe the paprika I used was too old, so if I try this again, I would use a little or none, and substitute something a little spicier in its place.
Hearty, healthy, and very comforting dish. Really enjoyed this. If you let the onions get a deep brown by slowly caramelizing them, the flavor is wonderful. Could have used more saffron. We doubled it and still needed a little more, but we like a punch of flavor, so start small and add what you need. Thanks for the great recipe!
I'm giving this a 4-star rating; mainly because we didn't care for the brown sugar taste with the other flavors. Next time I'm simply going to sautee the onions and mushrooms in butter until soft, then add the other ingredients. The other ingredients created such a burst of flavors in the mouth! I had freshly grated parm/regianno cheese we used at the table and I added just a little extra basil. Wow!
Lots of flavor in this dish! I couldn's stop eating! When I was cooking, i left out teh mushrooms and the saffron (only because it is so expensive) but it still turned out great! If you put a little more sour cream in it, the sauce will thicken as it stands, and turns out really delicious. Thanks for the great recipie!
Really nice and easy recipe with a lot of flavor. As others, I left out the paprika and added more saffron to get the full flavor of this wonderful spice. I used yogurt in lieu of the sour cream I didn't have, straining it through a cheesecloth for 30 minutes to remove excess water. Also, after cooking the shrimp, which only takes a few minutes, I removed them from the liquid they had produced and reduced it before adding the rest of the ingredients. Will absolutely make again!
This was great! Reminds me a lot of the chicken paprikish recipe I frequently make. I didn't include the saffron, which I'm sure would have added a nice flavor, but wasn't necessary. I added a little bit more brown sugar than specified since I'm a fan of carmelized anything, and it resulted in a bit more of a tangy, sweet aftertaste that I thought really complemented the dish well. A great quick, delicious recipe! I served three with this recipe, and probably could have bulked it up a little bit next time. Everyone wanted seconds!
In a word...Fantastic! I omitted the salt and made my own gnocchi. This is a real treat. I was very impressed with it.
