Up until my late teens, most of my summers were spent in Hawaii. I was exposed to cooking and amazing food at a young age by my grandparents and other family members, who all lived within blocks from each other in an area called Moanalua Valley. This meal will be reminiscent of some of the flavors and dishes that remind me of my time spent there.
