Glazed Red and Ladyfinger Bananas

  • FAST
  1. 2 tablespoons unsated butter
  2. 8 ripe ladyfinger bananas
  3. 4 ripe red bananas, halved lengthwise
  4. 1 vanilla bean, halved lengthwise
  5. 1 cup diced (1/3 inch) ripe pineapple
  6. 1/2 cup sweetened passion fruit juice (see Note)
  1. Melt the butter in a nonreactive skillet. Add the bananas in an even layer, red ones cut side down. Tuck the vanilla bean between the bananas and cook over moderately high heat for 4 minutes: turn the lady finger bananas so they brown all over; brown the red bananas on the bottom. Turn the red bananas, add the pineapple and cook until golden, about 2 minutes. Add the passion fruit juice and boil over high heat until reduced to a glaze, about 4 minutes. Serve warm.
Notes Sweetened passion fruit juice is available at specialty food stores and Latin American markets.
