Caribbean Bananas

Lime juice and fresh lime zest add flavorful tang to the buttery-rum richness of this recipe. Grilling the bananas gives them a little bit of a smoky quality that is just right – not too overpowering. Our bananas were probably a little more ripe than they should have been, so we had a little trouble with breakage on the grill. To avoid that problem, choose bananas that are yellow, but still show some green near the stems.
