Most Lebanese recipes are made to feed a full family, so we’ve tweaked some of our favourite recipes to create a dinner for two menu. Valentine’s day is just around the corner, and we think a romantic, candle-lit dinner for two beats dinner reservations any day.
Beet Hummus with mini (heart-shaped) pitas. Serve in small dishes, or a single shared app!
A fresh, crisp salad- and we’ve added pomegranate for an added flavour and colour burst.
Samke Harra Salmon Filets – this is traditionally made in a family sized portion. You can pan-sear single filets and use the same dressing for an elegant and fool proof presentation. Follow instructions for ‘Pan Searing Salmon Filet’
End the meal with a namoura square, or stick to the theme by baking your namoura in a heart mould. We tried this out, so don’t worry about baking mishaps. While they’re really easy to make, Namoura Hearts will be sure to get you extra points for creativity – with very little added time/effort. That’s the best kind of recipe!
