This recipe is a result of a twitter survey on gnocchi recipes I did. The most tempting proposal I got form Fraufeli and she suggested the use of orange for the sauce. This recipe is the outcome. I tested the recipe with lots of guests and everybody loved it. The recipe for the Gnocchi dough I discovered at lamiacucinas blog.

for the gnocchi
for the sauce
Preparation of the gnocchi:
Pour the boiling water into a bowl. Add the potato powder, salt, pepper, and some nutmeg. Stir well and add the egg. Slowly add the flour until a dough has formed.
Take the dough out of the bowl and place it on a working surface, powdered with flour.
Form finger thick rolls and cut gnocchi. (cut roll every 2 cm)
Bring salted water to boil.
meanwhile prepare the sauce:
Brown finely chopped onion in a pan. Add the chopped garlic. Stir and add the orange juice. Add some orange zest and the honey. Reduce the liquid a bit or add some corn flour.
Cube the salmon and put into the pan. Stir briefly and put the pan aside.
Now put the gnocchi into the boiling water. Once they rise in the water, put the pot aside and let them simmer for another 3 minutes. Then drain the gnocchi.
Put the gnocchi into the pan with the salmon. Heat up for a few minutes and mix all well.
Once the salmon begins to fall apart the dish is ready to be served.
