Preparation

  1. In a sealable container, place in the banana blossom along with the rest of a marinade ingredients, shake, then place in the freezer for at least 30 minutes (60 minutes would be perfect).
  2. Then remove the banana blossom, shape into a fish fillet shape and wrap them in a nori sheet and (use a little water if necessary) and ensure the seaweed is stuck to the banana blossom.
  3. Next, mix all the batter ingredients until smooth.
  4. Heat the oil in a deep pan until hot enough (you’ll know it’s hot enough if you drop a little salt in and it’ll make a high pitch noise).
  5. Then coat the banana fillets in batter and lower into the oil, cook on each side until golden (around 3-4 minutes).
  6. When cooked, remove from the oil and serve!
