Some time ago, I mentioned the bacon-wrapped dates that I'd eaten at Capaco, the tapas bar. Now we tried them at home. The home-made ones totally ruled, too.
Here's how to: wrap fresh dates (pit them if you like) in bacon and grill them in the oven on high heat or simply fry them in a pan until crunchy.
Serve immediately, enjoy the nice contrast of salt,crispy bacon vs. creamy, supa-sweet date.
The most simple recipe I found was in Danish, here. (which is also where I borrowed the pic)
I came across a more elaborate recipe here, that also included a sauce that looks mighty fine to me. Must try.
