Cupid is lurking right around the corner — do you have your Valentine’s Day plans squared away? Like many folks, you might be planning on staying at home to celebrate each other this year, but that just means you can show off your supreme chef skills and impress your sweetheart with a meal that they won’t soon forget.
Try one of these ultra-easy recipes for a romantic date night at home (because less prep time equals more couch cuddling time — and that’s a win-win).
Meal Idea #1: Surf and Turf for Two
Life’s little luxuries come in all shapes and sizes — and this one comes in one package! Make your someone special feel like a million bucks with this memorable meal.
This five-star feast for two combines the most decadent selections form land and sea. Our delicious, wild-caught Colossal Red King Crab Legs, the largest and most impressive of all crabs caught in the world, are naturally lean and bursting with flavor.
To pair with the crab legs, a pair of tender Market House USDA Prime Filets hits the spot. Carefully cut from the tenderloin and presented in perfect portions, this filet mignon is the most tender selection and the purest expression of what beef can be all on its own.
Meal Idea #2: Garlic + Butter Shrimp Pasta
Craving a cozy Valentine’s Day meal? When it comes to comfort food, it’s hard to top a warm, cheesy bed of noodles with fresh, sumptuous shrimp on top.
For a fail-proof sauce, easily whip together minced garlic, Italian herbs, fresh Parmesan cheese, and red pepper flakes, and then blend into a pool of unsalted butter. Pour over cooked pasta and shrimp for a meal that is simple, yet so satisfying!
The best part is that you can easily cater this dish to your specific tastes. Extra heat? Go heavy on red pepper flakes! Want to go super garlicky? We aren’t stopping you! Shrimp pasta is as customizable as it is comforting.
Meal Idea #3: Wild Alaskan Halibut
Known as the “steak of seafood,” you can’t go wrong with this premium white fish. Halibut is also a naturally lean fish, which is ideal for date night. (After all, nothing quashes romance like feeling overstuffed or bloated after a meal.)
And, our Wild Alaskan Halibut is a firm, versatile fish that retains its shape well when cooking — and that means you can grill, bake, poach or roast yours! Click here to learn how to perfectly poach your halibut!
