INGREDIENTS -1 1/2 tablespoons fine salt -1 tablespoon garlic powder -3 teaspoons cayenne pepper -2 teaspoons onion powder -2 teaspoons dried thyme -2 teaspoons sugar -1 teaspoon paprika -1 teaspoon ground allspice -1/2 teaspoon black pepper -1/2 teaspoon dried crushed red pepper -1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg -1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon -5 small unripe (green) bananas -1 quart oil for frying, or as needed
DIRECTIONS -Peel the bananas using a knife, as they are not ripe and will not peel like a yellow banana. Slice into long thin wedges or strings to make fries. -Heat the oil in a heavy deep skillet over medium-high heat. If you have a deep-fryer, heat the oil to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Place the banana fries into the hot oil, and fry until golden brown, 5 to 7 minutes. Drain on paper towels, sprinkle with spicy jerk salt. -Combine all remaining ingredients to make the jerk salt; store in an airtight container for up to 3 months.
