We’re huge fans of Top Chef alum Fabio Viviani’s cookbooks, and his latest is no exception. Pick up 30-Minute Italian and get ready to have a restaurant-worthy meal on the table in half an hour or less. This pan-seared sole will quickly become a weeknight staple. 

My mom makes this dish in about five minutes; I need ten! We both put everything in a plastic bag and refrigerate it so the fish marinates while we do something else, but letting it soak for fifteen or twenty minutes at room temperature works fine and allows you to get dinner on the table quickly.

The garlicky spinach with fish is classic and it takes only minutes for the spinach leaves to wilt in the pan.
