A complete sheet pan dinner that feeds 4 people in just 40 minutes? It doesn't get much easier. You'll only need a few pantry-staple ingredients in addition to the fish, veggies, and potatoes. The Tzaziki sauce is optional, but we highly suggest serving it with the final dish for over-the-top flavor (Plus--you'll have time to prepare it while the potatoes are cooking).
A small amount of the pasta's cooking liquid is whisked into the egg mixture to prevent the eggs from overcooking when added to the hot pasta. This procedure, called tempering, results in a rich, creamy sauce that easily coats the noodles.
Entertain dinner guests with a flavorful scallop supper served on a bed of tender noodles and steamed peas.
Sweet peaches and tart green tomatoes gain depth from a bit of char on the grill. Look for peaches that are still slightly firm so they hold up to the heat.
Finally, a seafood “bake” that lives up to its name. This lively platter of mussels, clams, sausage, and potatoes is a super fun alternative to your typical sheet pan suppers. It’s easy to make and doused in a ridiculously tasty, buttery white wine sauce—kicked up a bit with a little hot sauce and seafood seasoning—which is heavenly sopped up with the potatoes, as well as some crusty bread if you have it on hand. As far as seafood seasoning blends go, we prefer Slap Ya Mama brand, as we’ve found they use high quality ingredients, but feel free to use whatever you have kicking around your spice cabinet.
We love the combo of nectarines and raspberries, but use the fruit you have on hand--just be sure it's ripe and flavorful. Toasting the topping in the oven while the fruit cooks on the stovetop ensures the dessert is done lightning-fast.
