Thursday: Seared Scallops with Lemon Orzo (Greece)

Meal Plan // Week 7: Easy Mediterranean Dinners | 31Daily.com

“Scallops are a great protein for superfast dishes, as their delicate tenderness is best served when cooked fast and hot. Sear the scallops while the orzo cooks and you can have dinner done in about 18 minutes. If you’re not a scallop fan, substitute large peeled shrimp, slices of pork tenderloin, or small filet mignon.”

Friday: Superfast Kofte (Turkey)

Meal Plan // Week 7: Easy Mediterranean Dinners | 31Daily.com

“A Turkish take on the mini-hamburger, these use tangy yogurt in place of cheese and pita instead of buns. They get their unique flavor from common pantry spices in an uncommon combination. The best part is how fast they cook―eight minutes is all you need for a meaty and satisfying dinner for four. Serve with hummus and extra pita for dipping.”
