Main Dishes to Make Your First Date Romantic

Most people believe it is important to leave a good impression on your partner, and food is the easiest way. Whether you are single AF or dating someone new, many dishes can help aid your mood and make you feel more romantic.

Finding a like-minded dating partner is no longer a hassle, thanks to online dating sites offering quick hookups online. The best part is that you can interact with your potential partner and check out their profile to learn more about their likes and dislikes. If you love to cook, you can use certain filters and simply refer to profiles to ensure you meet a food lover online. 

Once you have found a partner to arrange hookups online, you can always offer a cooking date. Cooking on your first date can be a great way to spend time with someone new and get to know them better. It's also a great way to show your cooking skills while having fun in the kitchen.

Here are some great dishes to try on your first date: 

Pomegranate-Maple Lamb Chops

You can find many lamb chop recipes, but cooking these is as simple as cooking chicken (seriously), and as it takes no time, you will have plenty of time to talk about romantic things with someone you have met through dating sites.

  1. Make sure your grill is preheated at a high temperature.

  2. Combine the maple syrup, olive oil, and pomegranate molasses in a small bowl. Toss the mixture with the mustard and garlic, and whisk until smooth.

  3. Season each lamb chop using salt and pepper, and then generously coat on both sides with the glaze and set the remaining glaze aside. Lamb chops can be grilled in batches, turning once and brushing with the conserved glaze, for about 4 minutes on each side until thoroughly charred. While you're preparing the salad, cover with foil and allow to rest.

  4. To make your salad, combine the olive oil with some lemon juice in a big bowl and add salt and pepper. Spinach, onion, mint, almonds, and pomegranate seeds are also good additions.

  5. Serve these delicious lamb chops with the salad and mint sprigs as a garnish.

Roasted Cranberry Brown Sugar Pork

Looking for a colorful recipe to get your dating partner to fall in love with you and your taste in food? Try this!

 Set the oven temperature to 450 degrees Fahrenheit.

  1. In a small dish, combine the cinnamon, cayenne, and some brown sugar along with salt and pepper to taste. 3. Rub the pork chops with the brown sugar mixture before placing them on a chopping board.

  2. In a large pan, heat the olive oil. Pour in the pork chops and cook for 2 to 4 minutes on each side, or until they're browned and crispy. Remove from the skillet and place them on a serving platter.

  3. Pour the wine along with some pomegranate juice into the skillet gradually. Add the butter, thyme, cranberries, and rosemary with a tablespoon of brown sugar. Sprinkle some salt as well.

  4. Take the sauce and bring it to a boil before adding the pork chops to it. Cook for a few seconds and remove from the heat. 

  5. To finish, roast the chops in the oven for 10-15 minutes, or until they're slightly browned and the sauce has thickened. 

Smoked Paprika Chicken

You can prepare these juicy baked chicken thighs in just 5 minutes! The baking time is the same. The olive oil and paprika spice can surely add some zing to your first date and turn it into a romantic interaction.

  1. Set the oven temperature to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Prepare a baking sheet by lining it with aluminum foil and placing a wire rack on top of it. Put the chicken on the rack so that the skin is facing down. 

  2. After thoroughly mixing the spices in a small dish, sprinkle half of them over the chicken and continue to rub them in. After turning the chicken over so that the skin is facing up, spray it with oil and sprinkle the remaining spices over the top of the skin.

  3. Roast the chicken for approximately 50 minutes, or when you notice the skin is golden and crispy. Place the chicken in the middle of the oven. Ten minutes of rest time should be given to the chicken before it is served.
