Never, ever deep-fry gnocchi.
That is the lesson of this video. It was posted to YouTube back in 2010 by the Webstaurant Store but recently found life on Reddit. This guy Steve was wondering if you could fry a gnocchi, so he decided to put a bunch of them into a fryer and see what would happen.
He probably should have brought a shield. Watch the video and wait for the fried gnocchi action to happen….
