Author Notes

My husband and I traveled to the island of Kauai and I found this delicious dish in the Safeway grocery store deli of all places. I've mashed recipes from what I could find online to recreate it. It's delicious and whenever I prepare it, I like to pretend I'm on the beach of Hanalei. —stefani126
