This year, Valentine’s Day is on a Sunday, which might not leave you with a ton of time to make a special dinner for your valentine. If you’re looking for a special but quick meal to whip up for your darling this year, look no further! These ideas from BBC will get a delicious dinner – and dessert! – on the table in no time!
Smoked Salmon Carbonara
If you have 10 minutes you have time to whip up this creamy, flavorful dinner. You’ll make quick-cook spaghetti while preparing the sauce from butter, garlic, heavy cream, parmesan eggs, and some smoked salmon for an easy pasta dinner.
Spice-Crusted Tofu With Salad
This vegetarian meal comes together with a handful of spices, greens, kumquats, and a few aromatics. Since you’re only cooking the tofu and simply chopping and combining the rest of the ingredients for a quick salad, you’ll be finished in just 15 minutes!
Salmon Over Spinach With Caper Cream
Another easy 15-minute meal, you’ll season the salmon with spices of your choice (salt, pepper, garlic, and paprika are always winners with salmon) before pan-frying it for just a few minutes on each side. After the salmon has cooked, you’ll wilt the spinach in the same pan for a minute. Lemon juice, creme fraiche, and capers make a quick and easy pan sauce to finish the dish out.
Steak With Chimichurri
If you have 20 minutes you’ll have time to make a delicious steak with chimichurri sauce. Chimichurri is a quick sauce made of parsley, oregano, garlic, a shallot, chili flakes, and olive oil and it makes steak taste even better.
Heart-Shaped Chocolate Hazelnut French Toast Sammies
Now for something sweet, a few slices of brioche bread, chocolate hazelnut spread, and ice cream make the perfect quick and easy Valentine’s dessert. You’ll slice the brioche into heart shapes, add the chocolate spread, and fry it up like french toast. Serve it in a sandwich with a scoop of vanilla ice cream for the final touch.

No-Bake Manuka Honey Cheesecake
Some no-bake cheesecakes set with gelatin, but not this one. Honey helps to give the whipped cream cheese structure when it’s chilled and saves you lots of time. Top your cheesecakes with more manuka honey and the berry of your choice.
