Lemon Basil Shrimp and Pasta
A hallmark of Mediterranean dishes is that they derive deep flavor from simple ingredients prepared simply. This dish is a great example: You cook the shrimp in the water with the pasta, then add herby basil, briny capers, rich olive oil, and bright lemon juice, no further cooking required. Serve on a bed of spinach or alongside broccoli, asparagus, green beans, or any other green vegetable.
Orange-Balsamic Lamb Chops
A simple citrus marinade plus a quick sear yields significantly more flavor than you might think. Of course, a finishing balsamic drizzle is always welcome.

Pure and simple flavors stand out in this dish. In each bite, you'll taste the sweet tang of tomatoes, the salty bite of feta, the tender juiciness of chicken, and the briny sweetness of marinated artichoke hearts. Israeli couscous makes the recipe unique―its grains are much larger than regular couscous and they add a chewy texture that's another layer of depth.

Beef and Lamb Kofta Lettuce Wraps
We love the distinct savoriness ground lamb brings to these crunchy wraps, but you can go all ground sirloin for a verion that still delivers loads of flavor.
Try subbing in a different precooked whole grain, like farro or barley, for the rice to add a textural twist.
