1. Pan-Seared Scallops with Lemon Cream Sauce

This dish looks and tastes like it belongs in a high-end restaurant, but it only takes about 30 minutes to make! Start by pan-searing your scallops until they're nice and brown, then set them aside while you prepare the lemon cream sauce. 

Be sure to add a bit of white wine to the sauce for an extra touch of sophistication. Serve the scallops over a bed of rice or couscous, and don't forget the crusty bread for mopping up all that delicious sauce.

This can make the perfect appetizer for your special upcoming dinner with your SO and it's extremely easy to prepare if you follow this Chef Dawn's Recipes.

2. Roasted Salmon with Citrus Salsa

This dish is healthy, flavorful, and beautiful to boot. And best of all, it can be on the table in less than 30 minutes. Just roast some salmon filets in the oven and top them with a zesty salsa made from oranges, grapefruits, red onion, and cilantro.

To make the salsa, start by chopping up the citrus fruits into small pieces. Then, add in some chopped onion and cilantro. Season to taste with salt, pepper, and a touch of lime juice. For a little heat, you can also add in some diced jalapeño peppers. 

Serve it with some parmesan puff pastry asparagus twists and voila!

3. Chicken Piccata

Chicken piccata is a classic Italian dish that is simple to make and incredibly flavorful. The key to success is to use thinly sliced chicken breast so that the meat cooks quickly and stays moist.  The chicken is then dredged in flour and pan-fried until golden brown. Don’t forget to season the flour with salt, paprika, and garlic seasoning.

Once the chicken has been cooked, the sauce is made by deglazing the pan with white wine and chicken stock. The final step is to add some capers, lemon juice, and butter to the sauce, which gives it a rich and decadent flavor. Serve over angel hair pasta for an extra-special touch.

It is the ultimate comfort food and it is sure to please even the most finicky of eaters.

4. Thai Coconut Curry Soup

Thai Coconut Curry Soup is a flavorful and hearty soup that is perfect for a winter meal. The soup features a mix of spices, including ginger, lemongrass, and red chili pepper, that give it a fragrant and slightly spicy aroma. 

The soup is also made with coconut milk, which gives it a rich and creamy texture. To make the soup, simply sauté the spices in a tablespoon of oil until they are fragrant. Then add the coconut milk and simmer for a few minutes. 

Finally, add your desired protein (chicken or shrimp are both excellent choices) along with vegetables of choice and cook until done.  And it's pretty much impossible to mess up—just simmer everything together until the vegetables are tender and ladle them into bowls. 

Serve with rice and garnish with cilantro, lime wedges, sliced red chilies (if you want to spice things up), and crushed peanuts for extra deliciousness. 

5. Chocolate Lava Cake

No list of romantic meals would be complete without dessert! This chocolate lava cake is sinfully delicious yet surprisingly easy to make. And who doesn't love getting a little messy when eating dessert? Just be sure to have some ice cream on hand to scoop up all that molten chocolate goodness. 

Chocolate lava cake is the perfect way to end any date night. Rich, chocolatey, and oozing with molten chocolate goodness, this dessert is sure to satisfy even the most discerning sweet tooth. Best of all, it's relatively easy to make so you won't have to spend hours in the kitchen!
