THE RECIPES

Gremolata is a savory herb based condiment that usually contains lemon zest, garlic and anchovy.  In this case 
@feedtheswimmers replaced the anchovy with capers, which lends a lovely bright briny flavor.

Feedfeed Tip Don't be afraid of the sear! To get that craveable crispy skin, all you need is a smoking hot pan and some patience. Resist the urge to flip or remove the fish until it can move freely on the pan. If you force it, the skin will stick and steam instead of crisping.
Spinach Mashed Potatoes with Beluga Lentils by @scusatema

If we can get away with eating mashed potatoes for dinner, we're in! These have the added bonus of hearty beluga lentils. If you have any leftover salmon, it would be great on top of this dish.

Farro and Fried Egg Bowls  by @lorindabreeze

We love using farro for grain bowls, but anything you have on hand will work with these quick and easy bowls. The fried halloumi is a must here, so delicious with a perfectly runny egg!

Feedfeed Tip Fried cheese? Yes, you heard that right. If you haven't experienced halloumi yet, prepare to have a new favorite cheese. Halloumi has a very high melting point so it can easily be grilled or fried, which creates an amazing crispy crust that pairs nicely with the salty flavor.
Skillet Baked Mac & Cheese by @sandraseasycooking

Mac & cheese is not just for kids. Serve with any leftover greens from last night for a complete (and comforting!) meal.

BLT with Avocado by @thefeistykitchen

We could basically survive on BLTs. Add an avocado and we're in sandwich heaven. If you need a little extra protein, consider adding a fried egg.

Feedfeed Tip Bacon in the oven is the way to go!  Line a baking tray with foil, then set a rack on top. Add the bacon and cook in a 400˚ F oven for about 17 minutes, flipping once.
Cheesy Potato Pizza by @gluten.morgen

Carbs on carbs? That's one way to kick off the weekend!! Using a store bought crust keeps pizza night quick and easy.

Weekend Bonus
Chocolate Hazelnut Brownies by @mjnoboa

With leftover hazelnuts on hand, why not make hazelnut brownies?

Feedfeed Tip If you prefer to make your own chocolate hazelnut spread, you can do so by adding 1 cup roasted and peeled hazelnuts to a food processor. Add about 1 tbsp cocoa powder, 1 tbsp maple syrup, dash of vanilla extract and a pinch of salt. Process until smooth and creamy, about 8 minutes.
