Strategy #9: Consider Shellfish
When deciding what’s for dinner, shellfish is rarely the first thing that comes to mind. But since mussels, oysters, clams, and scallops are smart, sustainable buys, why not put a steaming bowl of mussels or a shellfish chowder on your menu?
|Steamed Mussels with Bell Peppers, Watercress, and Herbed Toasts||Grilled Mussels, Clams & Oysters||Clams with Basil Broth|
|Spicy Steamed Mussels with Lemongrass, Chile & Basil||Seared Scallops with golden Shallot & Grapefruit Sauce||Butter Roasted Oysters|
Strategy #10: Keep it Varied
On meatless nights, have a repertoire of versatile recipes at the ready. Try homemade pizza dough with a variety of meatless toppings, or fried rice with a range of meatless add-ins. Baked pastas and simple fresh tomato pan sauces for pasta are also endlessly variable. Use FineCooking.com's Recipe Makers to create thousands—yes, thousands—of your own custom recipes.
