Flambéed Bananas

Watching another episode of “Death in Paradise” takes me back to the Tropics and Guadeloupe, so , direction the kitchen for a quick but delicious dessert.

Serves 2:
2 medium-size bananas or 4 small ones, peeled
Juice of 1 lime
30 g unsalted butter
1spoonful of caster sugar
1 vanilla pod , split in 2, or 1 tablespoon vanilla essence
100ml golden rum

1. Melt the butter in a frying pan.
2. Fry the bananas gently.
3. Sprinkle the sugar on top and drizzle with the lime juice.
4. Scrape the vanilla grains on top and flambé with the rum.

Serve immediately with a scoop of vanilla ice-cream for each banana.
