14 Recipes for a Low-Key (But Impressive) Valentine's Day Dinner

You can always go all-out and plan an elaborate dinner, but if you want something special without spending all day in the kitchen, these recipes will do the trick.

Or, rely on your trusty sheet pan to make an herby roasted fish with fingerling potatoes, which yields an elegant main course with minimal clean-up to ruin the mood afterwards. Need some greens in the mix? This endive salad not only comes together quickly, but also feels special thanks to bright pomegranate arils. Whichever of these recipes you choose, a memorable meal is just a few steps away—read on for the full spread.
