Birthdays, promotions and anniversaries don’t always happen on the weekend, so it’s nice to have a few quick and special weeknight recipes like this one on hand. Our tasters were impressed by the tangy and smoky flavors we found in such a simple-to-prepare entree. —Catherine Higgins, Bountiful, Utah
