Chef John's Chicken Marsala
Certain dishes have a special place in my heart and this is one of them. The first real restaurant job I had in San Francisco was at a small place called Ryan's Cafe. It was run by a husband and wife team, Michael and Lenore Ryan. They were true 'foodies' before that term had even been coined. This chicken Marsala dish was the most popular dish on the menu and the first one that I was taught.
Shrimp Scampi with Pasta
Well-rounded seafood and pasta dish. Good with any pasta; angel hair is less filling.
Salmon with Fruit Salsa
Baked salmon and fruit salsa with a spicy kick. Serve over rice.
While many have heard of veal scallopini, you can make this Italian dish with most any meat or even vegetables. The trick is to use a demi-glace of the same style -- i.e., a venison demi if using deer. You can 'fake' a demi-glace by reducing an appropriate brown stock and adding a water and flour slurry to thicken. Makes an awesome romantic dinner for two.
Shrimp and Asparagus Fettuccine

Spring Strawberry Salad with Chicken
