These Spanish Fried Bananas with Honey are packed with flavors, super easy to make and done in just 20 minutes. This is a very popular dessert from the Canary Islands, where you will find it at almost every restaurant.
My favorite part about this dish is how easy it is to put together. We´re talking minimal prep work, simple ingredients and once again, done in just 20 minutes.
You can serve these fried bananas as an after dinner dessert or even for breakfast. Either way, remember to use a great olive oil, as it´s what really flavors this dish.
TIPS & TRICKS to Make this Recipe: I used bananas I bought 3 days before I made the recipe. That way they are not green or fully ripe. You want them right at the middle. As it gives them the perfect texture.
