Sweet and spicy, this dish comes together fast, and may even help you get lucky 🙂 

Shape magazine asked me to put together a few aphrodisiac recipes in honor of Valentine’s day, so I decided on this delicious chili ginger glaze, which contains a few of the foods purported to put you in the mood. 

Chiles: Chiles get your blood pumping, increasing circulation and stimulating nerve endings so that you feel more turned on.

Honey: This sweet and sticky nectar is filled with B vitamins, needed for testosterone production, and boron, which helps the body use and metabolize estrogen. Lore has it that the term “honeymoon” comes from an old tradition in which newlyweds drank a honey drink for 30 days after marriage to help them get acquainted in the bedroom, and thus set the foundation for a healthy marriage.

Whether or not the dish actually helps you score, I don’t know, but it is a quick, easy, and delicious dish to put together for your Valentine.
