Fried Banana Blossom – AKA Fried “Fish” and Salad

  • RECIPE MAKES: 4 Serves / 1.5g protein per serve
  • PREP TIME: 10min
  • COOK TIME: 10min
Step 1

Drain and rinse banana blossom.  Using paper towel, dry blossoms to remove any excess water.  Weigh dried blossoms, you will need 400g; discard any excess.  

Step 2

In a medium sized bowl, place FATE, baking powder, garlic salt, and paprika.  Stir to combine.   

Step 3

In a small frying pan, pour oil until it measures approx.  ½-1cm up side of pan.  Heat to medium, until oil is gently bubbling (but not boiling). 

Step 4

Pour stock over dry ingredients.  Using a large spoon, fold stock into ingredients, stir gently.   Blend ingredients together, by rubbing the back of the spoon, against the side of bowl, to remove any lumps and produce a smooth batter.   

Step 5

Place approx.  half of the blossoms into the batter, and coat.   Carefully lower blossoms into the oil, fry approx. 2min., using a fork, flip and fry further 2min.  Remove and place on paper towel.  Repeat this step using remaining blossoms. 

Step 6

Serve hot with green salad leaves. 

Top Tip:

For super crispy blossoms, pre-heat oven to 200°C.  After frying, place in hot oven 5-8min.  Yummy!   

Change up the flavour by replacing paprika with either tumeric, moroccan seasoning, chinese five spice and more!
