Being in the centre of the Mediterranean, there really is no reason why you shouldn’t take advantage of the choice of fresh fish in Malta when planning your romantic date. Here are some reasons eating seafood is one of the most romantic options.
Sure, you could splash out a little and dine at a fancy restaurant occasionally, but what’s more romantic than preparing your own feast at home on your date night? Cooking together can be a great bonding experience (as long as you don’t get into a heated argument over who’s doing what and which one of you can do it better). First of all, you’ll be spending extra quality time together. You can also be playful and have a laugh while preparing the fish and the various side dishes that go well with it, such as bruschetta, roast potatoes, grilled veg and rice.
And when you finally sit down to enjoy a sumptuous meal you worked for together, this will give you both a sense of satisfaction and strengthen your connection. Here’s hoping it is sparks, not dishes, that will fly!
It (hopefully) improves communication
The act of cooking requires you to talk, and unless you’re both professional chefs, chances are you’re going to need to learn how to communicate effectively. Perhaps one of you may even need to show the other how something is done, like how to dice a carrot correctly – the perfect excuse to get up close!
Some types of seafood, namely oysters, are considered as aphrodisiacs. With low-fat protein meat that naturally boosts dopamine and norepinephrine in your brain, the heightened sensitivity can definitely make for a more memorable evening. Serving these first at a dinner date is an excellent way to get the meal off to a romantic start.
Fun Way to Eat
There’s something primal about eating seafood; sometimes you have to get your hands dirty, suck out the juicy meat and let the delicious blend of flavours of the sea and lemon burst on your tongue. While gazing into each other’s eyes, of course.
