Sole with Bananas

Recipe by  

"Who would think bananas would go so nicely with fish? I used sole with this recipe, but I think any white fish would work. My family usually doesn't eat fish, but we all gobbled this up!"

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

What wierdo thought to put bananas with fish. How genious!!! Tasted delicious and not very hard to do. Make sure to have colorful sides because the white fish with the white banana with the white sauce makes the dish pretty white.

I did not care for this. The white wine was overpowering, and the bananas go all mushy when cooked - overall tasted bad with the fish.

This has the basis of being incredible! I did it according to the recipe but put the wine in the sauce and didn't uses as much.It was great. Next time I will use Petrale sole instead of Dover, it has less water content. I will also make the sauce a little thinner, mine was super thick. I loved the bananas! I want a banana in each bite so I will add more. All in all, very tasty! We loved it!I'll do it again with the changes and may change the rating to 5 stars!

Very interesting and definately worth trying, but I don't think I'd make it a regular meal. You could definately get away with adding a lot less wine (there is a lot of liquid to drain off in the finished dish) and I think fresh cilantro would make a good addition between the fish and the banannas.

This was better than expected. My husband said it was like something you order at a restaurant and wants me to make it again soon.

My husband loved this recipe as did I - we ate it so quickly! I omitted the white wine from the recipe and it still tasted great! Will definately cook again!

My husband and I love anything with bananas and believe that any meal should be accompanied with one. So this recipe caught my eye. However, I was disappointed. It did not have much flavor and was not what we expected at all.

This is a great idea. I tried it last night. It turned out good but I think I had too much flour in the sauce as it was a little "pastey" if you will. I posted a pic of my finished fish. Next time I think I will add a bit more Banana too. Very good combination with the cheese (I used Parmesan & Romano) Without my sauce mistake and very little tweaking, I think this is an awesome idea and is very good!
