Muay Thai Banana Recipe

I was looking for a sexy recipe for Valentine grilling. I decided on 'Grilled Chicken Hearts' which, although a tad obvious, would make for a fine Valentine meal. Problem is - my own sweetheart wasn't 'in love' with the idea of eating chicken hearts (good thing I didn't tell her about my prairie oyster idea). So, we settled on bananas...

 

Muay Thai Bananas

Grilled bananas are pure awesomeness. Also, they are scientifically proven to get you more lovin' so, this Valentine's Day, say "I love you" with some grilled fruit. This recipe gives the bananas a definite Asian sensation. Definitely not 'low-fat' but it's awfully delicious. Combine with some ice cream for a dessert that your sweetheart will love. Close your eyes and pretend that you're Yul Brynner on-set in 'The King and I' (not 'Westworld' - I'll bet Yul didn't get within two miles of a grilled dessert on-set of Westworld).
