In a large sauté pan, heat the butter, sugar, and cinnamon until bubbling and thick while whisking constantly. Add vanilla and cook sauce for 1 minute.
Place cut bananas into the pan, cut side down, and cook, shaking the pan occasionally, until the bananas are browned, about 1 minute.
Using a spatula, turn the bananas over and sprinkle with salt. Cook, shaking the pan, until bananas are browned and cooked, about 2 minutes. Remove from the heat.
Add the rum to the pan and return to the heat. Carefully ignite the rum and flambé, shaking the pan, until the flame goes out.
Serve with vanilla ice cream and garnish with the toasted pecans.
