Are you kidding!! That's out of the box!! Did the banana's take on any smoke or get mushy from the heat?

That's just decadent!!!  I love it, ...those bananas are called "rios" here and they are sweeter than most, I'm gonna have to try that!

 

What's that on top of the shrimp, a slice of baguette, I'm always looking for new ways to cook shrimp, ...Mrs JPT can put away some shrimp.

 

Thanks for the ideas.

gene    those are plantain slices on the shrimp   just use a ripe one so it isnt hard,    you should have plantains in tahiti?

Thanks Rick, I had to look up 'plantain,' looks to me like a big banana.

 

Look what's hangin' over our back fence, are these plantains?

Duh....

 

What was that thread about losing our memories...

 

Yes we have plantains here, I had two stands of them, but they we pulled up, they're called 'puru ini,' very good, ...cooked and served in fresh coconut milk, yum, everybody that passed by wanted to buy some, ...they were uprooted to plant flowers.  th_dunno-1[1].gif

 

Thanks Rick for jogging the memory.

WOW you wouldn't think the 2 would go together. I guess the saying "Everything is better with bacon" is right. Great job Rick!

They look delish. Great idea. Elvis put bacon and bananas together a long time ago. He didn't smoke them though. Plantains are great fried too. They are almost more like potato than they are banana.
