Every girls dream! Errr … I mean, it’s every hosts dream for parties. This has to be the easiest and fastest appetizer that will wow your guests. I put these out for an open house party we had before Christmas and everyone asked about the hot dates. Which sounds funny, but are delicious. Dates quickly pan fried in a tiny bit of olive oil and then sprinkled with flaky sea salt. That’s it, that’s all.
I hadn’t planned on posting this recipe, however I got asked so many questions about how I got the dates to go all “buttery”that I thought I should share. And since New Years Eve is rapidly approaching I thought that maybe someone out there would be in need of this easy recipe.
- 8-12 Medjool Dates fresh dates, not dried
- Olive oil
- Flaky Sea Salt
Lightly coat a frying pan with olive oil and heat until VERY hot. Add dates and quickly pan fry until starting to brown. (Watch the dates closely as they quickly go from cold to burnt).
Sprinkle with flaky sea salt
