I can't think of a quicker meal than to throw together a seared ahi bowl. You can also used leftover poke which makes it even quicker.
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 Karoly...

Strawberries Romanoff is an American-French classic: strawberries are macerated in orange liquer and served with sugar and cream. I decided to take this wonderful trio and top butter mochi with it! I knew I already loved it over pound cake, so I figured butter mochi would work just as well. It turned out great!

Tempura saimin - My aunty used to always make this recipe and it comes out tasting so good! The version made in the picture is without the vegetables, but you can add any of your favorites like char siu, green onion, spam etc.

Get your slow cooker out of your pantry and put it to good use.This Slow Cooker Okinawan Shoyu Pork recipe seems better made in a slow cooker. Juicy, tender and yummy.
Champuru is an Okinawan word for "mix". You can throw different ingredients into a pan and fry them. My favoriite is Somen Champuru. This is a very simple recipe using only a few ingredients - somen, Spam, and bok choy. If you like, you can throw an egg at very last. Garnish with chopped green onion and "beni shoga" (red ginger).
This Sweet Potato Haupia Pie is a very simple and popular dessert in Hawaii...
Aburage (sushi cones) stuffed with hamburger, water chestnuts, carrots and onions (meatloaf mixture) stewed in a savory tomato-onion broth.
This is a fairly quick and easy dessert to make. The hardest part is boiling the sweet potatoes. Once the potatoes are done, it takes just a few minutes to assemble (which can be done ahead of time). You will amaze your family and friends with how amazing these little Sweet Potato Cream Tarts taste.
