Try these seafood dishes

When buying salmon for these seafood recipes, buy a center-cut fillet for the best presentation. Have your fish monger cut it for you. Having the fillets all the same size means they will cook evenly, and they’ll look nicer on a serving platter.

Your new year’s resolution? Make these muffins

Instead of remorse over a holiday season well spent, the best medicine may be a simple shift. Better to focus on the pleasures of a new set of ingredients, some slightly more virtuous than others, and to ease into the new year with as much joy as you had in the weeks before.

Salmon gets fresh flavor from lemon, garlic

Lemon and garlic add a fresh and flavorful sauce to salmon fillet. The secret to perfectly cooked salmon is to sear it first in a skillet and then finish the cooking in the oven. It should come out soft and juicy and a little translucence in the center. It will have some carryover cooking once it is off the heat. Look for wild caught salmon. The tartness of the sauce is a perfect balance for the richness of the fish.
