Today I had such a strong taste for fried sweet plantains and I haven’t found them at any of the supermarkets down here. So yesterday I pleaded with my husband to please pick up some half ripe (green) bananas and so he did. So I figured why not give these bananas a whirl and they came out so delicious! Oh really! My husband loved them too.
Fried Banana’s Recipe
2 half ripe Banana’s (Peeled)
3 Tablespoons of olive oil
1 large skillet
Pour oil in skillet and heat up the oil. Slice the banana’s diagonally and place into the skillet and fry till slightly browned on one side. Turn over and brown the other side and remove from skillet and serve.
They were so warm, creamy, sweet and delicious. You can eat them just the way they are or you can put them on top of some butter pecan Ice cream or any flavor ice cream you like. I am so amazed at how close the flavor was to the fried sweet plantains I so loved to cook when I lived in New York. Well those bananas sure did hit the spot!
