  1. Melt the butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Stir in the onion, mushrooms, and brown sugar. Cook and stir until the onion has cooked to a deep brown color, about 10 minutes. Remove the caramelized onions and set aside.
  2. Fill a large pot with lightly salted water and bring to a rolling boil over high heat. Once the water is boiling, stir in the gnocchi and return to a boil. Cook until the gnocchi floats to the top, about 3 minutes; drain, and keep warm.
  3. Place the skillet over medium-high heat, and stir in the shrimp. Cook and stir until the shrimp have turned pink on the outside and are no longer translucent in the center, about 5 minutes. Add the caramelized onions, sour cream, paprika, and saffron. Cook and stir until the mixture begins to simmer, then gently fold in the cooked gnocchi, then season to taste with salt.
  4. Pour the gnocchi into a serving dish, and sprinkle with shredded basil and Parmesan cheese to serve.

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, lar...

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 doub...

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 so...

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 ...

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 li...

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 cre...

Easy to make and delicious.

In a word...Fantastic! I omitted the salt and made my own gnocchi. This is a real treat. I was very impressed with it.
