La Receta del Dia: Banana Scallops edit

Have you ever tried this? It is a tradition in Latin American homestyle food to have ripe bananas or plaintain with your main dish at lunch or dinner. The most common ways are: "platano en tentacion", "tajadas fritas", "al horno con canela y azucar morena", "baked with cheese"...hmmm, I am hungry AGAIN! Today we are sharing with you this delicious new recipe with a vintage feel.

Enjoy! Chef Melissa

There is a lovely Cuban place here in Portland, OR. The atmosphere is great. On Hot nights you can sit outside and eat your meal while listening to great music.

They make wonderful plantians, served with beautiful main courses.

Plantains are something intersting for the pallate. They are a bit starchy, but have a tangy kick if you prepare them right.

Banana scallops sounds great…I will have to try this.

Love plantain, but not so fond of cooked bananas.  Funny how two similar foods come out so different when cooked
