Filet Mignon with Lemon Crab Sauce Recipe


Planning to serve a romantic dinner for Valentine’s Day, but are short on time? Filet Mignon with Lemon Crab Sauce can be made - start to finish - in less than 30 minutes, and it’s elegant enough to serve for the fanciest dinner and the most important guest. The luscious sauce starts out with the versatile Basic Cream Soup Mix, and is combined with dehydrated red and green peppers (or fresh if you have lots of time to chop them), fresh lemon, and crab.
””
Set the table ahead of time with your fanciest table linens and china; add candles, of course, and some romantic mood music. Your lucky guest will be duly impressed, and will have no idea how little time you spent on the meal.

Steamed green vegetables such as asparagus, broccoli, or sugar snap peas go well and add color to this meal, as well as a starch such as a baked potato or, even better, Fruited Rice Pilaf. Pick up some crusty bread from the bakery, and your meal will be almost complete. Chocolate is a must for Valentine’s Day, so visit the BellaOnline Desserts for dozens of ideas, including desserts to make ahead.
