In the immortal words of lady hip hop divas TLC, “I ain’t too proud to beg!” Good to know. Because that is the attitude you should inspire in your dates. The most effective way to do that is to blow their goddamn minds with mind-blowing nibbles. Between good eats and being a great lay, you will brainwash them. They will be begging you for another taste. It’s like a harem full of opium addicts. Only your fix will give them the satisfaction they require. Wrap it up tight in meaty goodness.
Total time: Approximately 10 minutes
Projected cost: $10
Drinking buddy: CHASING GINGER TAIL
Ingredients (serves 2)
1. 7 fresh jumbo SHRIMP
2. 7 strips bacon (piggy or turkey)
3. 1 tbsp HONEY
4. 1 dash sea salt
Peel and devein the shrimp. Drizzle honey over them and wrap them in bacon at a slight angle going from tail to tip, leaving some exposed. Salt as desired.
Throw the bacon in a pan, griddle, or grill. Cook the shrimp in the grease coming off the bacon. Flip when the first side begins to char (approx 3 min), and char the other side (3 min).
These shrimp rock solo, but feel free to use CONDOM-MENTS like sweet chili sauce.
