Hamachi Shooters

In early 2013, Jim and I had some dear friends over for dinner, just two months after our first child was born. Our friends were previously living in San Jose and had recently moved back to Texas. We were eager to catch up with them and introduce Harper. They introduced us to this Hamachi Shooter, an expensive appetizer from a swanky restaurant in California. It's like fireworks in your mouth, and you want more, more, more!
