Favorite Hawaiian-Style Recipes
Some of my favorite Hawaiian and Hawaii Regional Cooking recipes which includes dishes from almost every ethnicity that you would find in Hawaii.
Lazy Lu'au with spinach and taro leaves Came up with this recipe because I realized I really wanted to make Lu’au stew and low and behold, I did not have enough taro leaves. It came out winner because the spinach thickened it a little and it had the taste of lu’au as if spinach was not there. Besides in my neck of the woods it cost a lot to buy one package of frozen taro leaves so we slice the budget down a tad bit.
Coconut Chocolate Macadamia Nut Pie This is like the Hawaiian version of pecan pie made with macadamia nuts, coconut and a rich, chocholatey (is that a word?) filling. Very simple to make!! This recipe uses a buttery flakey crust, but you can use a store bought crust if you like...but the extra effort is well worth it!
Roy's Chocolate Souffle - Roy’s is one of our absolute favorite restaurants. It’s Hawaiian infused cuisine and we ate there in Hawaii earlier this year. At the end of our meal we ordered their Chocolate Soufflé. It was so good that as a shot in the dark I emailed Roy’s and asked them if I could have the recipe. I was amazed that 1) they actually emailed me back and 2) that they willingly gave me the recipe with permission to share it with you guys.Recipe courtesy of Christy Denney.
Spicy Sashimi w/Umeboshi on Crispy Renkon Have you ever had renkon chips? Renkon is lotus root. The only time I remember eating renkon when I was little was on New Year's Day--my grandmother said it was traditional--you ate it "so you can see the future". Renkon is also in nishime and umani--but I've never had it fried and crispy. Recipe courtesy of Karolyn of Foodjimoto.com website.
