    East Wind Goddess's Note:

    Vietnamese banana fritters encounter N'awlins bananas foster in this fresh fusion dessert. The bananas fried in panko crumbs retain a crunchy shell under a lucious butter caramel sauce. Feeling especially decadent? Add chopped walnuts and drizzle with melted chocolate chips! If you shop in Asian markets, the small Asian bananas work wonderfully--just double the number.

    • 1/4 cup brown sugar
    • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
    • 1/4 teaspoon allspice

    • 1/4 cup rum (use Malibu or another coconut rum for a coconut infusion)
    • 1/2 teaspoon zest from lemon

      I'd call these tipsy bananas because they sure pack a punch. So good. They almost taste like little donuts dunked in a cocktail. I bet these would be good with ice-cream and I agree with your suggestion of the walnuts. I cut my banana lengthwise and then sliced them into a total of 6 pieces. I ate them for dinner! Great Job Chef!
