Seder Recipes Besides Brisket

Looking to switch up the main dish for your seder or for easy dinner ideas to cook later in the week? These impressive, Passover-friendly recipes include braised lamb, slow-roasted fish, grilled short ribs, and baked chicken.

Roasted Salmon with Asparagus and Potatoes

This lemony dish feels refreshing and comforting at the same time—and it only takes 40 minutes from start to finish.

Crispy Chicken Stew with Lemon, Artichokes, Capers, and Olives

Crisped, browned chicken thighs are stewed with lemons, olives, and capers in this Mediterranean-inspired main. The recipe calls for chopping the meat before serving, but the thighs can also be served whole for a more elegant presentation.

Roasted Niçoise Salad with Halibut

Marinated artichoke hearts get super-crispy and addictively delicious when roasted, making them the secret star of this simple sheet-pan dinner.

Roasted Breast of Veal with Springtime Stuffing

There’s no doubt about it: this magnificent cut of meat puts any humble braised brisket to shame.

Balsamic Short Ribs

Braised with balsamic vinegar and tomatoes, beef short ribs are deeply flavorful and wonderfully comforting.

Hasselback Butternut Squash with Bay Leaves

For this holiday-worthy vegetarian entrée, roasting the butternut with several bay leaves slipped between the slices results in a subtle aromatic backdrop for the chile glaze.

Slow-Roasted Chicken with All the Garlic

Alliums, like green garlic bulbs, couldn’t be more at home in the oven, smothered in olive oil and seasoned with salt.

Leg of Lamb with Garlic and Rosemary

This old Gourmet recipe has reviews from 126 users, almost all of whom love it. So take it from them: even if it’s your “first time cooking lamb,” you’ll be “hooked.”
