OK...ths whole idea of black beans and bananas just seemed so wacky that I had to try it. Although maybe it's a different cultural cuisine that I'm just not aware of...but am glad I tried! The recipe didn't say what to DO with the puree (do you plate the fish on top of it, spoon it over top, put it on the side?) but it doesn't really matter. I ended up spooning it on the plate next to the fish. Nice, smooth texture, tropical flavor. Very different, and a nice switch from everyday fish recipes.
