Fresh, simple recipe ideas for dinners in Hawaii?
We'll be in a rental house in Hawaii for 10 days and since we'll be in a pretty remote place, we'll be cooking a lot. Of course, since we're on vacation we'll also be lazy and want fairly simple, healthy dinners (breakfast and lunch are free-for-alls). We'll have a grill and we'll be cooking for 5-7 people. Any suggestions?
If you'll also have access to a stove, you might consider taking a few Asian Home Gourmet packets; I've been finding them in my local Asian food stores for about $2.39/packet. You basically add meat and vegetables; they don't contain any msg or artificial flavors and come in a variety of Asian ethnic choices: Indian, Vietnamese, Thai, etc.
Of course they have a website at asianhomegourmet.com in case you think you might be interested.
Ahi poke. It's just chopped raw ahi tuna (go early in the morning to get the best), nori, sesame oil, soy sauce, garlic, ginger, red pepper flakes and scallions.
Grilled mahi-mahi with mangoes.
Loco moco (hamburger patties topped with fried eggs, covered in brown gravy -- you can use the stuff in a can) with rice and mac salad.
Which island? There aren't actually too many "remote" places where you won't be able to get stuff, unless you're hiking up to what used to be Kalapana or out on the far end of Kauai.
