The Pompano Grille's Fire-Grilled Banana Split

Serves: 4
Total Calories: 1,347


1 cup maple syrup
1/2 cup rum, dark
1/4 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon, ground
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg, freshly grated
4 bananas, slightly green, peeled
1 quart ice cream, Coconut
2 cups whipped cream (see recipe)
1/4 cup coconut, shredded, toasted
2 tablespoons macadamia nuts, chopped, toasted


1. Preheat the grill to high.

2. Combine the syrup, rum, sugar, cinnamon, and nutmeg in a large bowl and whisk until the sugar is dissolved. Set aside to cool.

3. When ready to cook, oil the grill grate. Arrange the bananas on the hot grate and grill, turning with tongs, until nicely browned all over, 6 to 8 minutes in all. Transfer the bananas to a cutting board and slice on the diagonal into bite-size pieces. Stir the hot bananas into the syrup mixture and allow to cool to room temperature. Cover and let marinate, in the refrigerator, for 3 hours.

4. Prepare the banana splits. Mound one-quarter of the ice cream in the center of each of 4 shallow dessert bowls. Spoon the bananas with a little syrup mixture over the ice cream. Spoon or pipe rosettes of whipped cream on top and sprinkle with toasted coconut and macadamia nuts. Serve immediately.
