1 1/2 lb. cleaned, cooked shrimp
1/4 cup butter
3 firm bananas
Salt
3 cups hot, cooked rice
2 cups Creole Sauce, below

Heat shrimp in the top of a double boiler over hot water. Melt butter in a large skillet. Peel bananas and cut crosswise into halves. Fry bananas in hot butter over low heat turning to brown evenly. Cook just until tender, or until easily pierced with a fork. Remove from heat; sprinkle lightly with salt and keep warm. Make a bed of rice on a large, heated platter; arrange bananas around edge and shrimp on top. Pour part of the sauce on top; serve remainder on the side.

Makes 6 servings.
