Need to get dinner on the table in a hurry? Turn to quick-cooking proteins and fresh veggies that barely need a sauté, and you'll turn out delicious dishes like Panfried Steak with Mushroom Ragout and Crunchy Vegetable and Brown Rice Salad in no time. For dessert, make use of a variety of store-bought favorites interspersed with high-impact but simple delicacies, such as Dulce de Leche Ice Cream with Honey Orange Roasted Figs.

Quick Fish Dinner

Dinner doesn't get much easier, or quicker, than flavorful baked fish fillets served alongside a hearty sauté of fresh vegetables. For dessert, purchased cookie dough delivers the freshly baked taste (and fragrance!) of homemade cookies but without the work.

menu tips:
  • For A Change

Many reviewers suggest variations on the Fish Fillets with Olives and Oregano. Besides halibut, there are several other types of fish that would work—use striped bass, rainbow trout, tilapia, or orange roughy depending on what looks freshest. Experiment with different olives, like kalamata or alphonso, or, if you're not a fan, replace the olives with capers. Many users also enjoyed the addition of artichokes.

  • Fresh Or Frozen?

When available, fresh vegetables, especially from a local farmers' market, are best, but frozen vegetables make a perfectly good substitute in tonight's succotash. They contain similar nutrients to fresh, and often it's easier to find the organic variety frozen than fresh. It's not necessary to thaw frozen vegetables—just use as little water as possible when cooking (about 1/2 cup per 2 cups vegetables).
