Candied ginger, I wanted to make this for Chinese New Year but got a little too busy.
I know... the thought of a cookie filled with bbq pork?? But it is absolutely delicious... The sweet pork filling is surrounded by a crisp, flakey cookie dough and baked to perfection. A perfect dim sum treat!
Want to make a perfect roasted chicken with the flavors that we all grew up with in Hawaii - try this easy chinese roasted chicken recipe!
A friend brought this over this past weekend and I just loved it and so easy to make.
This dish takes me straight to downtown Chinatown where you will find all kinds of succulent Chinese BBQ from roast pork, char siu and duck! This is a semi-traditional recipe with a slight Hawaii twist using Hawaiian Salt, Shoyu and Hawaiian chili peppers for a little kick!
This is the typical soy sauce braised chicken that you will find in most Cantonese restaurants in Hawaii. Cantonese style chicken is similar to shoyu chicken, but it has a different flavor profile that includes chinese five spice.
I love chicken fried rice, well I like any type of fried rice!
Another take on an island favorite - Shoyu chicken but with a Cantonese or Chinese twist. Shoyu chicken recipes have evolved over the years with everything added and with every variation of shoyu chicken that you could possibly think of. Here is another rendition of shoyu chicken for you to try.
Char Siu Pastry is perfect as an appetizer or a side dish for a nice chinese meal or brunch.
Char siu is a favorite in Hawaii. You can use this recipe for chicken too! Although the recipe is for baking, I prefer to cook my char siu on a grill.
So here it is, my Chicken Lollipops recipe with fermented red bean curd and a final touch of panko breading. I am sure this classic appetizer with a twist will be a welcomed guest to any party.
We always have noodles for New Year's Day. This is a very simple noodle recipe that we would typically eat for good luck and prosperity on New Year's day along with all of the ono foods that you would typically feast on. I love visiting friends and family and eating all of the different ono food!
Crispy spicy chili wings - sweet, salty, spicy and absolutely delicious!
This Crispy Twice Cooked Duck is a great recipe to use up leftover holiday duck although I make it especially for the holidays and buy a whole duck specifically for this dish...
Taro never tasted so good with this sweet-savory combination.
Nothing reminds me more of the holidays than the smell of fresh baked cookies in the oven. This is a semi-traditional cookie dressed up for the holidays.
Not sure if all of you realize how lucky we are to have our own version of noodles...the cake noodle. According to an article in Hawaii's Midweek, the birth of the cake noodle was at the On On restaurant in McCully. The cake noodle is a chinese dish, but made with saimin noodles...go figure. This recipe looks simi...
This is probably one of the most popular dishes in Hawaii...the recipe is a little involved, but not very difficult and well worth the effort.
One of my favorite dishes...steamed moi. Hawaiian moi is the Hawaiian term for the fish Pacific Threadfin (‘Polydactylus sexfilis’) and is only found in Hawaiian waters. Moi was the desired fish in ancient Hawaii. It was reserved only for the Hawaiian alii, or royalty, and fishponds were specially built along the coastlines to cultivate it...
This delicous and tasteful Crispy Royal Hawaiian Honey Walnut Shrimp is made with Royal Hawaiian Lehua Honey
Authentic orange chicken is very different than the orange chicken that we are familiar with in Hawaii. The orange chicken that we are used to is a variation of a dish known as General Tso's Chicken. Nonetheless, this is a relatively easy dish to prepare and is very popular!
