•2 tbls butter
•1 cup unsweetened coconut milk
•2 or 3 Tbls of sugar
•Lime juice to taste
•A scant pinch of salt
•A couple of spoonfuls of brown sugar
1.Add the coconut milk and 2 Tbls sugar to a small sauce pan and bring to a boil. Boil until reduced by half, about 5 minutes.
2.When as thick as heavy cream, it is done. Add a squeeze of lime and a very small pinch of salt and taste. You are looking for a rich and sweet creamy sauce with a hint of tart citrus. If it needs more sweetness, add another spoonful of sugar, and if it needs more sour keep adding squeezes of lime juice until it tastes right.
3.Peel your bananas and heat the butter in a heavy fry pan over medium high heat. When the butter is hot, add the bananas and cook for about a minute per side. You want to get them a little bit golden brown. When they are done, sprinkle on a couple of spoonfuls of brown sugar, give a quick stir, and remove from the heat.
4.Pool the sauce on the bottom of four flat bottomed bowls and place one banana in each bowl.
5.Garnish with any sliced tropical fruit if you have it.
