recipe search - white fish with bananas?
Posted 31 January 2013 - 04:22 AM
I have to say it sounded a bit weird to me but I trust her taste. Googling isn't much help - lots of recipes for fish baked in banana leaves, but with fresh bananas, not so much.
Anyone have an idea if this is a traditional Portuguese recipe - or maybe this was just a very creative chef?

Trying to edit again:
I googled and found this recipe in "taste of portugal" page: http://www.theworldw...a-with-bananas/
It doesn't specify what kind of bananas, so I'd assume standard American supermarket sweet bananas.
Is this at all like what your friend remembers?

Look at the video, and if it seems like something you would like to try, I'd be happy to translate the recipe.
This site, by the way, is my absolute #1 resource for Portuguese recipes.
I grew up in the north of Portugal and don't remember ever having a dish with fish and banana. It may be traditional from Madeira, as Meanderer suggests above.
In fact, now that I think about it, the best bananas we get in Portugal are from Madeira, so it's very likely that this dish is from Madeira.
The bananas we get year-round in Portugal are just like the bananas we get in the US. But in the right season, we get these small bananas from Madeira that are some of the tastiest bananas I've had. They remind me of the small sweet bananas found in South East Asia.
