Fried Bananas

Adding a Twist to a Classic

While many are familiar with fried plantains, not everyone knows that bananas can be fried too. Yes, you heard that right – bananas! When done right, fried bananas are surprisingly addictive. They can be served as a side dish, a dessert, or simply enjoyed as is.

Some people like to take their fried bananas to the next level by adding sugar and cinnamon. Personally, I believe that bananas are naturally sweet enough on their own. However, I do enjoy sprinkling a bit of salt on them to create a delightful sweet and salty combination.

The addition of salt is optional and depends on your personal preference. If you want to enjoy the fried bananas as a dessert, I recommend skipping the salt. On the other hand, if you plan to serve them as a side dish, a tiny amount of salt will enhance their flavor.

How to Fry Bananas

To make fried bananas, follow these simple steps:

  • Preheat cooking oil for deep frying.
  • Peel the bananas and slice them into approximately half-inch thickness.
  • Optionally, season the slices with a tiny amount of salt.
  • Fry the banana slices until both sides are well fried.
  • Once fried, remove the slices from the oil and let them drain inside a colander.
  • The result will be perfectly fried bananas with a gooey interior and a crispy crust around the edges.

Choosing the Perfect Banana

Choosing the right banana is crucial when making fried bananas. Here are some tips:

  • Opt for semi-ripe or ripe but firm bananas. Look for bananas that are yellow with green tips (as shown in the picture below).
  • If you choose overly ripe bananas, they may turn out oily and mushy. On the other hand, unripe green bananas are not suitable for this recipe.
  • Finding the right balance will give you the best results – a perfect combination of gooey and crispy textures.

Handy Tips

Here are some additional tips to help you make the most of your fried bananas:

  • Avoid draining the fried bananas on a paper towel, as they are soft and highly caramelized. They will stick to the towel.
  • If you want to serve the fried bananas over ice cream, feel free to sprinkle them with sugar and cinnamon before frying.
  • If you’re not eating the fried bananas immediately, place them on a plate and separate each slice to prevent sticking.

How to Serve Fried Bananas

I love serving fried bananas with grilled fish, rice, or stew. Of course, they can also be enjoyed on their own as a delightful snack. The choice is yours!
