Fried Date and Bacon Pinchos

Mauricio Salinas

Yield: Makes 20

These bacon-wrapped dates are a tapas party classic. Salty, sweet, crunchy, and chewy–what’s not to love?


  • 20 dates
  • 20 slices thin rindless bacon
  • 2-3 Tbs. peanut oil


  • Slit the dates along the longest sides and carefully remove and discard the pits. Wrap each date in a strip of bacon and secure with a wooden toothpick. Heat the oil in a skillet or frying pan, add the bacon rolls and cook, turning occasionally, for about 10 minutes, until the bacon is cooked through and lightly browned. Drain well and serve immediately.
