BBQ Banana Split with Miso-Sesame Crunch Recipe

A banana split is so kitsch and joyful it’s hard to resist, particularly when the bananas are rendered golden from the grill and topped with a miso-turbo-ed nutty, crunchy crumble that’s full of butter and sesame.

How to make BBQ Banana Split with Miso-Sesame Crunch

  1. Prepare a barbecue for two-zone cooking
  2. Preheat the oven to 200°C (400°F/gas 6).
  3. Combine the butter, sugar and miso paste in a bowl and beat with an electric whisk until combined. Using your fingers, rub in the flour – you’re looking for lots of uneven lumps. Stir in the oats, nuts and seeds.
  4. Spread the crumble mix onto a baking tray and bake in the oven for 10–15 minutes, or until golden, turning it halfway through with a spatula – it should be dark golden and will harden as it cools.
  5. Cut the bananas in half lengthways but don’t peel them. Brush the cut sides with the melted butter. Place over direct heat, cut-side down, for 2–3 minutes, or until lightly charred.
  6. To serve, either arrange the grilled bananas on a platter and top with scoops of vanilla ice cream, cherries and the miso sesame crunch, or arrange the elements in separate bowls. Either way, I let people help themselves.
  7. To cook indoors: Brush the bananas with butter as above and cook in a preheated griddle pan cut-side down for a few minutes, or until lightly charred.
