Mother-in-law coming into town this weekend, looking for something to impress, but also something that won't bust the gut (she's pretty critical of things like that). Pretty open to the type of meat. Any ideas would be appreciated!
Some kind of fish? You could do it en papillote so it looks good. You could go Asian with some ginger and spring onions with a bit of soy or sesame oil on some salmon... Serve with some bok choyor something, and some noodles. Or you could go mediterranean with some olives and tomatoes, with some oven roasted veg- courgettes, peppers etc. All prep ahead stuff that's light enough for any mother in law. Meringues and fruit after wards to try and keep her sweet?
Thank you, Asian-inspired sounds great!
Make some ideal appetizers such as dips. I like crab Rangoon dip and ruben dip. Other than that make a healthy soup. Spicy or other very flavorful soups are meant to impress.
