    Things To Grab

    • Large stockpot
    • Colander
    • Paper towels
    • 2 large skillets with lids
    • Emulsion blender or traditional blender
    • Small bowl
    • Large bowl


    1. Bring a large stockpot of lightly salted water to a boil. Cook gnocchi according to package directions; drain, reserving 1/4 cup pasta water, and set aside.

    2. Pat cod dry with paper towels and cut thick portion of cod into 3 equal fillets; set aside. Chop thin portion of cod into small 1/4-to-1/2-inch pieces; set aside.

    3. Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil and butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Stir in black garlic; saute 30 seconds, or until fragrant. Add chopped cod, and season with lemon zest, salt, and pepper.

    4. Stir in brandy and carefully ignite to produce a flame. Once flame has disappeared, stir in crème fraiche and reduce heat to medium-low. Cook for 3 to 5 minutes on low heat or until hot and bubbly. Stir in 1/4 cup pasta water and Pecorino Romano cheese.

      Hyvee Culinary Expert Tip
      Alcohol is very flammable! To avoid burns, remove skillet from heat and use a lighter with a long neck and carefully ignite the brandy. The flame may be faint or transparent, so make sure the skillet is no longer ignited before placing back on the burner.

Sear for 4 minutes, flipping once halfway through, or until a crust forms. Add white wine to pan and cover; reduce heat to medium-low. Steam cod for 6 to 8 minutes or until cooked through (145 degrees).
