Baked Trout Fillets with Horseradish-Caper Glaze

2 / 7 Baked Trout Fillets with Horseradish-Caper Glaze

"This mild-flavored trout is baked with a bold coating of horseradish, garlic, and capers for a dish that is ridiculously easy to make but is actually quite elegant in its simplicity. I serve it with a side of asparagus or puréed cauliflower for a light dinner." -- Lisa Oz

Dr. Oz on trout: "Salmon gets all the glory, but we like to mix it up with trout, which can help to restore moisture to your skin by fortifying the ceramide barrier, resulting in healthier skin."

Oz Family House Dressing

3 / 7 Oz Family House Dressing

"Every household needs a go-to vinaigrette for everyday meals. I love this one because it touches all the bases. Dijon mustard gives the dressing a bit of spice and helps thicken it, too. I adore fresh chives, so I always have some on hand, but you could substitute a tablespoon or so of minced scallion tops or shallot, if preferred." -- Lisa Oz

Dr. Oz on vinegar's benefits: "Vinegar is a powerful antimicrobial and is full of polyphenols that help mitigate oxidative stress. Vinegar helps stabilize blood sugar by slowing the absorption of carbohydrates, and may aid in weight loss by increasing satiety."

Spiced Sweet Potato Oven Fries with Garlicky Yogurt Dip

4 / 7 Spiced Sweet Potato Oven Fries with Garlicky Yogurt Dip

"These have the look and feel of French fries but are so much more flavorful. The fact that they’re more healthful, too, is almost irrelevant. Be sure to spread the sweet potatoes out between two baking sheets -- if they are crowded, they will steam and not brown." -- Lisa Oz

5 / 7 Grilled Asparagus and Peaches with Caramelized Shallots and Hazelnuts

Gnocchi with Walnut and Sage Sauce

6 / 7 Gnocchi with Walnut and Sage Sauce

"These fabulous little dumplings are ideal for a holiday feast or other special occasion. Making the gnocchi from scratch is a bit more work than using a packaged type, but the delicately spiced flavor of the butternut squash is hard to replicate in a store-bought version." -- Lisa Oz

Almost German Chocolate Cake

7 / 7 Almost German Chocolate Cake

"The only thing Mehmet asks for on his birthday is this ultra-decadent chocolate cake. (Oh, don’t look so shocked! He just eats one piece and it’s only once a year.) The first time I made it for him was over thirty years ago, with my friend Marilyn. The recipe has evolved from her classic version to a darker chocolate cake, but it’s still got that sticky-sweet-gooey coconut icing." -- Lisa Oz
