Aunty doesn’t really like to cook. These are really good recipes, mostly very easy. The garlic mayo shrimp is SO delicious and was even the catalyst that caused a wedding!

Chinese style Steamed Fish

My favorite way to eat fish.  Just make sure there are no scales left on the skin if you are steaming whole fish.  I once bought fish fillets from Whole Foods – Chilean Sea Bass.  Unreal good stuff.  Costed a lot though.  Sometimes you have to spoil yourself and get the best. STEAMED FISH Sprinkle salt on cleaned fish (or fillet), lay stalks of green onion over.  Place in steamer or wrap with foil, and put ...

Fishcake with Oio or Awa

Uncle says this recipe is the best one.  I got this from the Hilo Women’s Country cookbook.  They must have good cooks over in Hilo.  When Uncle catches oio, I make fishcake, but first he has the harder job of skinning, then spooning the meat off the fish.  I then go in with my hands and fingers and pick out any bones he may have missed.  Uncle says he doesn’t mind the bits of bones.  How can that be?  I th ...

Grannie’s Crispy Skin Broiled Chicken

I remember savoring the smell and hearing the crackling sounds of the chicken in the oven as it sat and cooked when I lived with my mother, aka Grannie to our kids.  Make sure you have a self cleaning oven because this is not the neatest of recipes. Wash and pat dry a whole chicken.  Throw garlic salt, pepper, rock salt, whatever into cleaned out cavity.  Apply garlic salt, pepper, and rock salt to outside ...

Put cabbage (should be soft from being salted) into bowl, add some (a tablespoon or more) cooked rice ...

Pickled Mango (mouth watering!)

Just thinking about it makes my mouth pucker.  It is getting harder to find common mangoes.  Common mangoes make the best pickled mango – better than Hayden or any other variety.  We also used to eat green or half ripe mango with shoyu, rice vinegar and black pepper.  It was so ono!  Ono enough to be worth the sore stomach after. From Hawaiian Electric - they always share really good recipes on their monthl ...
