Sean Robbins – Portuguese Sausage Omelet
Singer, songwriter Sean Robbins is an accomplished slack key guitarist who learned the Hawaiian language so that he could write his lyrics in Hawaiian. He wanted to do this instead of having to write his music in English and then having to translate it to Hawaiian. His commitment to his craft and his music is why this young musician has accomplished so much in a relatively short period of time.
This week’s episode of Cooking Hawaiian Style features Sean making all of his local favorites using Portuguese sausage. He shares his go-to recipe for this Portuguese sausage omelet which is filled with rice in the middle of the omelet. What a great idea!! Be sure to catch this episode with a special performance of his song “Ka Lehua” at the end of the episode.
