Hey, I never thought of it that way. So BP is like the US's United Fruit? Talk about the chickens coming home to roost, ho ho ho.
GRILLED BANANAS WITH COCONUT-CARAMEL SAUCE
Recipe adapted from "Steven Raichlen's Planet Barbecue!"
Makes 4 servings.
1/2 cup palm sugar or light brown sugar
1 cup unsweetened coconut milk
8 apple bananas or 4 conventional bananas
Flat bamboo skewers
To make sauce: In heavy saucepan, combine sugar and coconut milk. Bring to a boil over medium heat, whisking to dissolve sugar. Simmer briskly, whisking often, for 5 minutes or until thick, golden and very flavorful. Remove pan from heat. Cool to room temperature. Place it in deep bowl. (Note: Sauce can be prepared up to 1 day ahead and covered and refrigerated. Let sauce return to room temperature before using.)
To grill bananas: Heat grill to high. Brush and oil grill grate. Peel bananas. Place skewer through end of each banana. Grill bananas for 1 to 2 minutes per side or until lightly browned and partially cooked. Dip bananas in coconut-caramel sauce (or brush sauce onto on all sides). Return bananas to grill. Grill for 1 to 3 minutes or until bananas are darkly browned and sizzling. (Note: A bamboo skewer should easily pierce banana.)
To serve: Transfer to platter or bowl. Spoon remaining sauce on top. Serve at once.
This is excellent with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
How is that behaving like a Banana Republic? Seems someone needs a history refresher. Banana Republics took orders from the companies, NOT the other way around.
