Recipes from Today’s Show: Easy Weeknight Entertaining

Published by

TODAY on MHTV: If you’ve got a party falling somewhere between Monday and Friday, don’t go crazy trying to pull it together. All you need is a few easy, make-ahead appetizers and you’re set. Gravlax—wild salmon cured in a fennel-infused mix—can be made up to a day or two in advance. Then I’m making shrimp cocktail with three different dipping sauces, and a no-cook platter of radishes with salt and olive oil. Since it’s a party, my friend Michelli is coming over to shake up some of her famous Brazilian caipirinha cocktails. More from the show.

Get the recipes from this episode:

Gravlax with Sweet Mustard Sauce

Shrimp Cocktail with Three Sauces

Radishes with Olive Oil and Salt


Watch ”Mad Hungry with Lucinda Scala Quinn” Tuesdays through Fridays at 11 a.m. ET and 11:30 a.m. ET on Hallmark Channel.

    Hi Lucinda,

    Love appetizers. I enjoy when friends have an appetizer party. I don’t need a sit down dinner.
    My family made eggplant rollatini this weekend. It was wonderful. It was the first time I had it. I will no doubt be making it again.


    P.S. When is your cookbook coming out???

    Your method from your grandmother for fried eggs with a little water was the best tip ever. I wish I had known it years ago. Thanks for the tip.

    Hi Lucinda,

    The Hallmark Channel must put you on more. 4 days a week is ridiculous. I made the raddichio and endive side dish last night for my family. Actually we had it as a meal. It was so tasty. Bravo to you and your guest teacher for sharing it with viewers.

    In response to Dana, I too made the eggplant dish this weekend. It truly was a great dish. Wityh a loaf of bread, we were in heaven.
    Can’t wait for the new cookbook also.
