Smoked banana

A Kamado, such as the Big Green Egg, is often used for smoking meat and fish. But did you know that smoked banana is also quite delicious? In this recipe, we will explain how to easily make a spectacular dessert with banana, chocolate and pistachio.

INGREDIENTS

BANANA

  • 25 g shelled pistachios
  • 10 g grated coconut
  • 100 g dark chocolate
  • 4 not too ripe bananas
  • vanilla ice cream

Also needed

  • 4 cedar wood sheets (to be bought at a BBQ specialist store or cookery shop)
  • butcher’s twine

PREPARATION IN ADVANCE

  1. Ignite the charcoal in the Big Green Egg and heat, with the grid, to 120°C. In the meantime, finely chop the pistachios and mix with the grated coconut. Break the chocolate into pieces and melt au bain-marie.
  2. Peel the bananas, spread the melted chocolate all over them and sprinkle with the pistachio mix. Wrap each banana in a cedar wood sheet and tie with a piece of butcher’s twine.

PREPARATION

  1. Place the wrapped bananas on the grid and close the lid of the EGG. Allow the bananas to cook for about 10 minutes.
  2. Remove the wrapped bananas from the EGG and serve while still warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. Enjoy!
