THE RECIPES
People are often intimidated by pan searing fish, but the truth is it's quite simple. The fish will let you know when it's ready to be flipped, so there is no need to force it which can often lead to a flaky mess. Make sure you pan is nice and hot when you add the fish, then wait for a crust to form (the sear!) before you attempt to flip it. Serve this salmon and sauce over rice and roasted asparagus.

Feedfeed Tip Making a classic pan sauce is a skill all home cooks should have. Without many extra ingredients you can make a deliciously savory sauce to top your protein of choice, while cleaning up your pan in the process. The basic steps are sear your protein, then dump the cooking oil from the pan. Add a pat of butter, then your aromatics of choice (think: garlic, shallots, onions or ramps if your feeling fancy) and cook until softened. Deglaze the pan with liquid of choice (in our case rosé!) and scrape up any brown bits from the bottom of the pan (this flavorful substance is also called fond). Once the deglazing liquid of choice reduces, remove from heat and swirl in a pat of butter. Voila!
Feedfeed Spring Farro Bowl with Buttermilk Dressing 

Our own @kevmasse came up with this bowl of deliciousness which happens to make a perfect Monday night meal! You can make the farro ahead on Sunday so that this bowl comes together quickly. For the buttermilk dressing, you can use whatever herbs you have on hand from the salmon.  Be sure to make a double batch; it will keep in the fridge for about 3 days.

Feedfeed Tip Farro is a nutty ancient grain that is delicious in salads, soups, breakfast bowls and risottos. If you are cooking whole farro rather than pearled or semi-pearled, be sure to soak it overnight first.

Feedfeed Tip Flank steak is a great on the grill. It's inexpensive and cooks in just a few minutes. When slicing, be sure to do so across the grain or else the meat will be very tough and chewy.
