How To Make Banana Peel Bacon?

  1. Peel any stickers off the banana and cut of the ends on both sides. Make two verticle cuts on each opposite side using a knife.

2. Using a spoon, scrape off the inside flesh of the banana down to the skin. Be careful when lifting up the skin, it is very delicate and can tear very easily.

3. Prepare the marinade by adding the soy sauce, maple syrup, garlic powder, and paprika into a deep bowl and mix to combine. I used a large soup bowl. Soak the banana skins in the marinade for 15 minutes.

4. Add oil into a large skillet and heat on medium heat. Once the oil is hot, carefully add each banana skin and fry for 3 minutes on each side.

4. Once fried, remove banana skin bacon and place onto a plate lined with paper towels. They will crisp up even more once cooked.
