THIS RAPID-FIRE RECIPE “embodies all that’s good about pan searing with the ingredients you’re apt to keep on hand,” says Viviani. The side salad of avocado and canned artichokes marry perfectly with the lemony chicken, especially because the artichokes are heated up in the same pan.
THIS LIGHT, PERFECT-FOR-SPRING pasta dish delivers a hearty dose of dietary fiber and vitamin C with the help of zucchini, as well as vitamin B12 and omega-3 fatty acids courtesy of the salmon. The combination of fresh herbs like tarragon, dill, and parsley pack in a bunch of flavor that will make this a weeknight staple.
“IF YOU DON’T want to fire up the grill,” chef Viviano says, you can simply “sear the shrimp” in a pan. Bonus tip: Make a bit of extra sauce and use it to marinate the shrimp before you grill it.
MOST IMPORTANTLY, FROZEN calamari will work just fine if you’re not able to get your hands on the fresh, good-quality stuff. For added flavor, Viviani reccomends letting the calamari “soak in a simple olive oil and lemon juice marinade while you prep the spinach.” Don’t let the calamari soak for more than 15 minutes, though, as the lemon juice will start to “cook” the squid.
QUINO, WHICH IS gluten-free and high in protein, is the superstar of this crisp, well-balanced salad. It blends “perfectly with the honey, dill, fruity olive oil, briny olives, sweet cherry tomatoes, earthy roasted red peppers, and creamy, crumbly feta cheese,” says Viviani.
