Baked Fish with Summer Squash

Rating: 5 stars
Think baked fish is boring? One taste of this catch of the day, and you'll be hooked. Thinly slice the squashes so they cook as swiftly as the cod or halibut, and combine them with capers, thyme, and olive oil. Covering with foil for most of the cooking time is key: The protein stays tender, the vegetables get soft and juicy, and every forkful bursts with flavor.

Baked Scallops

The pan juices that are released from baking the scallops mix with creme fraiche and white wine to create a delicious garlicky sauce. Serve this gratin with crusty bread for dipping, or for a heartier dish, serve over thin spaghetti tossed in olive oil.
