What to Cook Memorial Day Weekend

What to Cook Memorial Day Weekend


Whatever you may be doing this Memorial Day weekend, here are five main dish recipes for centering your meal. If you’re in the mood for something lighter, go for Chipotle Chop Salad. Looking for a way to use rhubarb that’s not just a sweet dessert, it’s Pan Seared Chicken with Rhubarb Thyme Sauce. Copper River Salmon – ah yes…expensive – has just hit the market so splurge a little and cook it my favorite way grilled on a cedar plank and finished with Beaurre Blanc (white butter) sauce. Or if you’re lucky enough to score some spot prawns, one of my favorite ways to enjoy them than is this recipe for Prawn and Roasted Red Pepper Linguine. And Thai Style Pork Skewers With Peanut Sauce does some of the work ahead of time by marinating, making it easier at the last minute to pull together.

Let me know what you end up cooking – I love hearing from you!
