You may or may not know it, but it my favorite week of the year: Shark Week. Shark Week is on Discovery, and usually takes place in late summer, and is a week long dedicated to shark programming: conservation, stories of shark bites, countdowns of the most shark attacks prone beaches, and usually a special historical reenactment or two of people stranded at sea for weeks being attacked by sharks.
For me, it’s a nostalgic week that reminds me of summers of Popsicles, sandwiches, and getting along with my siblings all week to enjoy watching bull, mako, tiger, and of course white shares getting their chomp on.
This year I decided to share my love with my friends and hosted a Shark Week opening night party. And of course, needed some shark influenced foods.
Enter Ocean dip.
1 can cannellini beans
1/3-2/3 cup olive oil
Parsley and oregano
3-4 cloves garlic
Blue food coloring
Take your beans and rinse them.
Add some more oil if it’s too thick (mine was) and add some blue food coloring.
And, of course, you can serve it with some fishies, too!
And, for a drink, don’t forget to whip up some ocean punch (soda water, blue Koolaid, a splash of sugar, and the alcohol of your choice!)
Enjoy while watching sharks swim through chummer waters, biting cameras, and generally being awesome!
