The key to melt-in-your-mouth fried bananas is to cook them immediately before serving so that the crust is crisp and the fruit is soft and warm.


  • 3/4 c. flour
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 3/4 to 1 c. water 1 lime, zested and cut into wedges
  • 4 small, ripe bananas
  • 1 c. canola oil for frying
  • 1 tbsp. sugar
  1. In a medium bowl, combine flour
  2. and salt.
  3. Add enough water to make a
  4. smooth batter that is somewhat thick. Add lime zest and mix well.
  5. Peel bananas and dip them in the
  6. batter 2 or 3 times, until well coated.
  7. In a deep skillet, heat oil to 375°F,
  8. or until a piece of bread browns in 30 seconds.*
  9. Place bananas in the oil slowly and
  10. carefully. Fry two at a time, until they are crisp and golden brown. Remove with a slotted spoon and place on paper towels to absorb the oil.
  11. To serve, arrange bananas on a plate
  12. and sprinkle with sugar. Garnish with lime wedges.
*Do not cook with hot oil unless anadult is present. Use a fat thermometer to check the temperature of the oil
