  • 1/4 cup canola oil
  • 6 pieces saba bananas, peeled and cut lengthwise into halves

For the Salted Coconut Caramel Sauce

  • 1 can (13.5 ounces) coconut milk
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt


  • In a skillet over medium heat, heat oil. Add bananas in a single layer and fry, turning once or twice, until golden and crisp on both sides.
  • Remove from pan and drain on paper towels.
  • In a sauce pot over medium heat, combine coconut milk, brown sugar, and salt and whisk together until sugar and salt are dissolved.
  • Continue to cook for about 20 to 25 minutes or until the mixture is reduced and thickened.
  • Drizzle over fried bananas.



For a smooth, silky texture, simmer the coconut milk at medium heat and do not bring it to a boil lest it curdles and separates.
