Jerusalem Artichoke Soup with Seared Foie Gras
Don't be fooled by the name, a Jerusalem artichoke is neither an artichoke, nor is it from Jerusalem. It's a sunflower tuber (also called a sunroot or sunchoke) that pairs perfectly with seared foie gras in a tasty soup.This recipe comes courtesy of L'Atelier des Chefs.

Seared Scallops with Pickled Daikon and Chile Jam
This is a complex yet elegant dish. To simplify it, you can leave out the chile jam and mix together a little sweet chile sauce, sunflower oil , Thai fish sauce, lime juice, and cilantro, using this to dress  the scallops and leaves. Still, we would make the jam: it’s completely addictive. Scully’s mother and nine aunties (yes, all on his mother’s side!) all have their own versions, each placing a different emphasis on the sour, spicy, sweet, and salty levels. Scully’s order  of preference, having played around with all the family recipes  and consulted  the authority on Thai cooking that is David Thomson, is sweet then sour then salty then spicy.The recipe makes enough to fill a medium jar (14 ounces/400 ml), but you can double the recipe if you like to keep a larger jar in the fridge. It will last for a month or more and is really versatile: as delicious with cold meat as it is spread in a cheese sandwich or spooned alongside some plain rice. Two disclaimers: first, don’t be put off by the smell of the dried shrimp in the pan. It’s not the ingredient’s strongest selling point, we know, but the resulting taste more than makes up for it. Second, sorry about all the garlic peeling and, no, twenty-four cloves is not a typo!Reprinted with permission from NOPI by Yotam Ottolenghi and Ramael Scully, copyright © 2015.

Pan-Seared Salmon with Pistachio-Herb Gremolata
By
Salmon is abundant in Scandinavia, but one can only eat so much of the gravad lax — cured salmon — found in every home kitchen as well as on restaurant menus. This is one of my favorite ways to give a touch of color and flavor to the ubiquitous fish and boiled dill potatoes. It’s such a pretty dish with the rosy salmon and green pistachios and herbs, but almost any fish would pair well with this flavorful gremolata. A fragrant bowl of basmati or jasmine rice would make a fine complement. This recipe is from A Mouthful of Stars. Click here for more information on the cookbook.

Scallops over Brussels sprouts
Scallops and butter are like peanut butter and jelly; it’s a classic combination that works well, and we don’t question it. I don’t normally add cream to my beurre blanc, but for those of you not familiar with butter sauces, the added stability will ensure that you get a perfectly emulsified sauce every time. When shopping for scallops, U-10 means that there are just under 10 scallops per pound. So, if a recipe calls for U-40 scallops, you'll be shopping for small bay scallops where about 40 pieces equal a pound. Pairs well with a light, crisp white wine, such as Sancerre or Pinot Grigio.

Sunchokes are prepared three ways in this recipe from executive chef David Diaz of Brasserie Beaumarchais — as a purée for the base, roasted for the centerpiece, and fried into chips for garnish. A Meyer lemon purée and brown butter lemon sauce add some fruitiness and richness to perfectly cooked scallops.

Seared Chicken Cutlets with Cherry Pan Sauce Recipe
When you only have 20 minutes to spare and three hungry mouths to feed, more often than not a parent will pull something not-so-nutritious out of the freezer — or opt for takeout. But it doesn't have to take tons of time or money to serve your family a nutritious and delicious dinner.  Inspired by a dish I had in Austria, where tender veal cutlets were seared and then doused in a rich, berry pan sauce, this healthy dinner takes only minutes to prepare and is full of delightful flavors that won't have you reaching into the freezer for ice cream later. In an effort to save money, I've opted for chicken cutlets here. But if you're willing to lay down some extra bucks, opt for thin paillards of veal, and then add an extra oomph of flavor to the sauce with a tablespoon of dark berry jam, balsamic vinegar, and a couple of tablespoons of dark dried fruits. Oh, and you'll need a lovely loaf of pain de campagne to mop up all the juices, believe me. Total cost: $9.26 Click here to see Dinner for Two Under $10.

pan seared cod
I love to showcase simple flavors in a slightly non-traditional way. This is a favorite of ours because we love the fresh flavor of Alaska cod combined with the char against the sweetness of the broccoli. — Laura Cole
