Elegance is in the house. This fish dinner has a fine-dining feel, thanks to a few key details. A swoosh of spiced, mint-flecked yogurt sets the tone for each plate, followed by a wholesome serving of red quinoa.

Finally, a classic Greek-inspired salad of cucumber and tomato goes gourmet with the addition of sweet pepper and quick-pickled shallot for chicness.
