Looking for a fast and flavorful meal to spice things up in the middle the week? Every day this week at 5 p.m., TODAY All Day’s new series "Get Cooking With…" will feature celebrity chefs and friends of TODAY hosting cooking demos from their home kitchens. Each recipe takes just 30 minutes to make, so you'll be able to have dinner on the table by the end of the show!

On Wednesday, chef, restaurateur and frequent judge on Food Network's "Chopped," Aarón Sánchez will be cooking up a special recipe from his 2019 memoir, "Where I Come From: Life Lessons from a Latino Chef."

Heading to the grocery store? Here's what you'll need to get cooking with chef Sánchez on Wednesday!

It’s uncommon to see most types of seafood served with mole, but this dish will change your mind. The real beauty here is that salmon, with its richness and higher fat content, stands up well to this strong, flavorful sauce. This was the meal I used to cook when I wanted to show off for my ex because it definitely has a wow factor that impressed her. I still love making it and I'm sure it will impress your loved ones, too.

Tune into TODAY All Day on Peacock and at 5 p.m. (on both coasts!) all week long to get cooking.
