Come summer, we find ourselves eating more red meat than usual, mostly in the form of hot dogs, burgers and steaks. We’ll always love them, but we need a break. So, this week’s all about chicken, fish and vegetarian dinners that are light, fresh and delicious.
Here’s What to Cook Every Night This Week (July 13 – 19)

Monday: Ginger-pineapple Shrimp Stir-fry
This single-serve recipe is just the ticket when you’re craving takeout but don’t want to commit to three days of leftovers. Double the recipe if you want some for lunch the next day too.

Here’s that Jamaican getaway you ordered. If you’ve never tasted jerk seasoning, brace yourself for warm spices, slight heat and a punch of savory flavor.
Wednesday: Zucchini Ricotta Galette
Store-bought crust makes it a breeze to assemble. Might we suggest pairing this cheesy gem with a chilled glass of Riesling?
Thursday: Crispy Baked Fish Tacos With Cabbage Slaw
All the crunch of your local cantina’s fried fish—minus the frying. You’ll love the tangy, refreshing slaw loaded with cabbage, red onion, jalapeño and lime juice.
Friday: Summer Skillet Gnocchi With Grilled Corn And Burrata
Serving a crowd? Enter the prettiest centerpiece on earth. Store-bought gnocchi make this recipe super simple, while juicy cherry tomatoes and grilled corn scream summer.
Saturday: One-pan Roasted Salmon With Potatoes And Romaine
We’ll never get over sheet-pan meals and neither will your sink. So, add this 40-minute wonder to your rotation that pulls together a protein, starch and veggie with minimal mess.
Sunday: Bruschetta Chicken
Bored of the same old chicken breasts? Homemade bruschetta made with plump tomatoes, fresh basil and tangy balsamic should liven things up.
