Korean-Style Seared Tuna
Traditional Korean flavorings combined with chicken stock make an intense and delicious sauce for the tuna.
Grilled Shrimp and Pitas with Chickpea Puree
Canned chickpeas are delicious when mashed with garlic, lemon, olive oil, and parsley. Serve them with grilled shrimp for a quick Greek-inspired warm-weather dish.
Summertime Strawberry Ice Cream
Make this with summer's sweetest strawberries, or substitute raspberries, blackberries, or blueberries -- even peaches.
Cataplana Stew with Sausage and Clams
Portuguese cataplana is a long-simmered pork stew to which clams are added. For our quick take on the dish, we’ve replaced the usual pork shoulder with sausage.
Crab Cakes with Horseradish Cream
Lump crabmeat is mixed with only enough bread crumbs and mayonnaise to hold it together, then coated with more crumbs and fried to a golden brown. A mixture of sour cream and horseradish provides lively accompaniment.
Boiled Lobster with Pepper Butter
Celebrate any special occasion with this dinner of boiled lobster with warm butter dipping sauce. You won't have to spend much time in the kitchen--this is one of the quickest of all our recipes to prepare.
Grilled Steaks with Lemon-Chive Corn
What a great meal for Father's Day!
Tortilla Soup
From south of the border comes this spicy and hearty soup ladled over crisp tortilla strips and grated cheddar. The soup is chunky with chicken and avocado, but it’s the tortillas that give it a slight thickness and a special flavor.
Grilled Steak Salad
A cold grilled steak salad makes a lovely summer meal. You can purchase the packaged mixed greens or mix your own.
Grilled Cornish Hens with Sun-Dried-Tomato Pesto
Since the tomato pesto here is made in a processor or blender, you have to make more than the small quantity needed. Use leftover pesto later in the week on grilled vegetables or fish. It’s also a delicious addition to sandwiches, not to mention pasta.
Blueberry Cornmeal Shortcakes
Top with vanilla-flavored yogurt, which goes well with plump blueberries. Or, if you prefer, use whipped cream.
Tuscan Tomato Bread Soup with Steamed Mussels
There are many versions of bread soup; this one, based on traditional peasant fare, is as thick as a bread pudding. If you choose, omit the mussels.
