You can find deviled eggs on the menu in almost any setting. Fancy restaurant? Deviled eggs. Backyard barbecue? Deviled eggs. Holiday party? You guessed it. This easy appetizer can be made with as few as two ingredients: eggs and mayonnaise. However, those who have made them before often like to put their own twist on the dish. Seasonings such as salt and paprika are commonly used to add flavor, though Food Network suggests adding avocado, pickles, or bacon.
When you're looking for a low-lift meal (with an equally quick cleanup) nothing beats a sheet pan recipe. We have ones that range from Spring Onion and Salami Sheet Pan Pizza to a sheet pan quiche — and in this episode of Last-Minute Meals with Paola, Paola Velez has another great addition to the list. Her recipe for Quick-Brined Salmon with Lemon, Miso, and Sofrito — a riff on this one from former Food & Wine Senior Test Kitchen Editor Kay Chun — manages to be both incredibly simple and packed with flavor. The first step is to brine the salmon fillets in a salt and water solution before baking; the second is to top them with a buttery sofrito mixture, bolstered with shiro miso, fresh lemon juice, and grated garlic. The fillets bake on a sheet pan, and pair perfectly with side dishes like rice pilaf or chofán, a fried rice dish popularized by Chinese immigrants in the Dominican Republic.

Potato salad isn’t supposed to be a main event. Its humble job is to support other dishes as a kind of chunky mayonnaise — a creamy and tangy mortar between the important dishes.
