Bananas are such a versatile fruit and so many great foods are created from them. These banana fritters only take a few minutes to make but are just as delicious as banana bread.

Growing up, my grandmother would always make saltfish fritters and it was one of my favorite foods to have aside from fried dumpling. I have also tried callaloo fritters from another family member, but it wasn’t until I got married that I finally tried banana fritters made by my mother-in-law. This recipe is a great way to use up any ripe bananas you might have on hand. These are my husband’s favorite but they are soon to be yours as well.
