   ~------------------------------FISH FUMET---------------------------------
   ~-----------------------------BANANA SALSA--------------------------------
   *    Use the best curry powder that you can find.  Also the freshest.
   **   Cut the red bananas into 1/4-inch dice.
   ***  Cut the red pepper into 1/4-inch dice.
   In a very heavy skillet, saute the curry powder in the butter until
   fragrant.  Stir in the shallots and garlic, and add the fumet.  Reduce the
   mixture until 1/4 cup remains.  Whisk in the cream and continue reducing
   until slightly thick.  Whisk in the lime juice and salt.  Broil or grill
   the oysters over pecan or mesquite until they open.  Remove the top shell,
   pour the curry sauce over them and top with the Banana Salsa.  Serve.
   FISH FUMET:
   Combine all of the ingredients in a large saucepan and bring to a boil.
   Lower the heat and simmer for 40 minutes.  Remove from the heat and let
   sit for another 30 minutes.  Strain and reserve the liquid.
   BANANA SALSA:
   Mix all of the ingredients together blending well.
