Rum and Molasses Grilled Bananas

  • 2/3 cup molasses
  • 1/4 cup dark rum
  • 2 Tbsp soy sauce
  • 2 Tbsp firmly packed light brown sugar
  • 2 tsp hot pepper sauce
  • 2 tsp fresh lime juice
  • 6 small firm bananas, peeled
  • Freshly ground black pepper image placeholder

Light a hot fire in a charcoal grill or preheat a gas grill to medium-high.

In a medium-sized bowl, mix together the molasses, rum, soy sauce, brown sugar, Pickapeppa sauce and lime juice.

Arrange the bananas in a single layer in a shallow disposable aluminum pan just large enough to hold them in a single layer. Drizzle half of the molasses mixture over the bananas.

When the fire is hot, set the pan of bananas on the rack. Cover and grill, basting occasionally, for 10 minutes.

Add the remaining molasses mixture and continue to grill, basting occasionally, until the molasses mixture has thickened and the bananas are glazed and tender, another 10 to 15 minutes.

Remove from the grill and let cool briefly. Transfer the bananas to a plate, inverting them (the undersides will be more attractively browned than the tops). Season generously with pepper and serve hot or warm.
