Pan-Seared Turkey with Gremolata
I might never have come up with this recipe if my car hadn't broken down on the way to a catering job. My client was looking forward to my cooking turkey at her home. She was psyched about the house filling up with the aroma of it roasting in the oven. Well, it took so long to get the car fixed that by the time I arrived at her house, I wouldn't have been able to cook and serve dinner until very late. And then I remembered how often I had been told that you can think of a turkey as a big chicken, so I cut it into parts: wing, drumstick, thigh, breast. It cut down the cooking time by two-thirds, and everyone really liked the way we rescued Thanksgiving. Click here to see The Chew: From the Television to Your Kitchen with the Official Cookbook.

Easy Pan-Seared Scallops
Try pairing these spicy scallops with a grüner veltliner (goes well with both seafood and spice) and a simple salad of arugula with Parmigiano-Reggiano in a lemon and olive oil vinaigrette.  The method below does not cook the scallops all the way through, but if you're eating good quality scallops then that's what you want to do. However, if you'd like to cook them through, then keep the heat on for about 45 seconds longer than suggested below.  Click here for 7 Satisfying Low-Carb Recipes.

Pan-Seared Scallops
After attempting to be crazy fancy — and setting off the fire alarm in my smoke-filled apartment — I decided that simplicity is the way to go when dealing with these tasty bivalves. All you need for this recipe is high-quality butter, scallops, and a pan. The butter will add richness and flavor, while still allowing the scallops to shine on their own. If you want to jazz it up, wrap them in bacon. Click here to see 5 Sublime Scallop Recipes. Click here for the 10 Seafood Recipes You Can Make in Less Than 15 Minutes

Believe it or not, this was the first time I've ever seared scallops. Yes, it's true. I have a few tips that I picked up on while perfecting these guys that you should know if you're a first-timer, too. One, butter is key. Two, always make sure your scallops are very dry before you sear them. Three, don't overcrowd the pan, because the juices from the scallops will prevent you from properly searing them. The pea purée is a great complement, but keep in mind that you can substitute other vegetables into that as well, such as carrots, butternut squash, or corn.

The halibut in this dish stands up on its own, with just a tad of butter added to the end. It lets its counterparts do most of the work, with the crispy Brussels sprouts providing texture and the citrusy yuzu beurre blanc adding a burst of fresh flavor.
