With only five ingredients and less than 20 minutes, you'll have a surf and turf meal that is set to impress. Serve this company-worthy platter with a green salad, and you're set for an elegant, fuss-free meal. For a more affordable (but equally tasty) option, try using shrimp in place of the scallops. Seared scallops are so easy and pair so well with the crispy, buttery flavor of the bacon and fresh navel oranges. As the scallops sear in the bacon drippings, they become crisp on the outside and cook slowly on the inside.
Cooking at home doesn't have to be difficult, expensive, or time-consuming. Mussels are surprisingly affordable and quick and easy to cook. They're also a standout sustainable star, a great option for those looking to make better seafood choices. A Dutch oven is key here; the roomy pot with a tight lid steams the mussels to perfection.
You’ll love this delicious pork chop dinner that cooks on a single sheet pan. The chops roast along with beets, which are combined with hearty kale to make a colorful winter salad with a tangy thyme-honey mustard dressing. It’s the best of both worlds—a hearty, satisfying dish that still feels healthy. Make-ahead tip: Whip up this creamy dressing one day before; store covered in the refrigerator.
There truly is nothing better than a crispy, crunchy batch of fried shrimp. This easy, no-fuss recipe is perfect when that salty craving hits. If you like, you can easily dress up the flavors by adding your favorite spices, such as paprika, cumin, or more cayenne. Depending on the size of your shrimp, you may have to adjust your cooking time. Serve these lil' poppers in a po' boy, taco, or just enjoy them straight up.
Go ahead and flag this recipe--it's sure to become a family favorite. For convenience, we call for precooked wild rice; if you can't find it, you can substitute 2 cups of your own cooked wild rice or a package of precooked brown rice.
Yeasted cinnamon rolls take hours—and they'll set you back 500 calories and 11g saturated fat. Here, we transform the delicacy into a portable muffin that's packed with whole grains, ribboned with nutty streusel, and topped with a tart-sweet yogurt glaze. The best part? It's ready in only half an hour. You can keep any leftovers in an airtight container up to 4 days, or freeze up to 1 month—although we doubt they'll last that long.
