Class things up for Mom with one of these seven super-elegant dishes.

1. Salmon Trout Tartare with Pressed Caviar and Tomatoes
Salmon trout has a mild, delicate taste, but regular salmon is also delicious in this bright-flavored tartare.

2. Grilled Asparagus with Mozzarella
Here, fresh mozzarella melts lightly on just-grilled asparagus spears; lemon vinaigrette adds bite.

3. Spicy Avocado-Cucumber Soup
This tangy, luscious soup is an excellent make-ahead dish: Simply puree everything except the garnish, then chill.

4. Scallop Rosettes with Avocado and Creamed Tandoori Chayote
For this delicious recipe, chef Daniel Boulud quickly cooks scallop slices, then serves them with a rich, tangy avocado-tomatillo sauce and Indian-spiced hearts of palm (we substitute chayote, which is easier to find).

5. Lobster BLTs
This delectable sandwich is filled with crunchy bacon, sweet chunks of lobster (replacing the usual lettuce) and herb-spiked mayonnaise.

6. Chicken Salad with Tahini-Yogurt Dressing
Star chef Jamie Bissonnette likes to make this grilled-chicken salad with boneless thighs because they stay juicier than breasts.

7. Creamy Rose Panna Cotta
This is the perfect way to end your Mother’s Day lunch on a sweet note. The key ingredient: Italian rose syrup, which provides a lovely, delicate floral flavor.
