I can "Banana Flambé"

If you want to impress the loved one, not only in the taste but also in the sight, here’s a classic that will do for you.
As you probably have read in my first post, the main objective of this Blog is to share the wonderful world of Gourmet, thus there are a few tricks and/or recipes that can be easily prepared at home.
An old classic used in many famous restaurants that can be easily be prepared by you. Once again, first and foremost, remember that the quality of the ingredients equals the quality of the dish (in this case desert).

Here's the shopping list:

2 bananas
2 tablespoons sunflower oil
4 tablespoons sugar
1/2 cup white rum or any strong white spirit (I use Bulgarian Rakia – firewater)
1 lime, squeezed
Vanilla Ice Cream

Step 1) Peel and halve the banana lengthwise.
Step 2) Heat the oil in a frying pan over medium heat.
Step 3) Brown the bananas 5 minutes on each side.
Step 4) Add the sugar and pour in the rum.
Step 5) Cook for 2 minutes.
Step 6) Flambé (that is set on fire the rum in the pan).
Step 7) Sprinkle with lime juice and serve at once.
Step 8) Serve the Flambé Bananas with a generous scoop of vanilla ice cream.

Bon Apetit,
Chef Gourmet Du Art
