Hawaii House Warming Party

There's nothing like buying your first home in Hawaii.  It's such a great feeling and of course your friends and family will want to celebrate with you.  Here are three of my favorite recipes to spice up your Hawaii house warming parties.

Hawaii Tri-tip

Ingredients:

  • 2-3 pound tri-tip roast
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup pineapple juice
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper

Instructions:

  1. In a small bowl, mix together the soy sauce, brown sugar, pineapple juice, garlic, ginger, and pepper.
  2. Place the tri-tip in a shallow dish and pour the marinade over the top. Cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours or overnight.
  3. Preheat your oven to 350.
  4. Remove the tri-tip from the marinade and discard the excess marinade.
  5. Place tri-tip in glass dish with aluminum foil cover.
  6. Cook for 30 minutes.
  7. Preheat your grill to medium-high heat.
  8. Grill the tri-tip for 5-7 minutes per side, or until it reaches your desired level of doneness.  We like 140 degrees.
  9. Remove the tri-tip from the grill and let it rest for a few minutes before slicing it thinly against the grain.
  10. Serve the tri-tip with your choice of sides and enjoy!

Here is a recipe for mahi mahi encrusted with macadamia nuts:

Ingredients:

  • 4 mahi mahi fillets, about 6 ounces each
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 2 egg whites
  • 1 cup finely chopped macadamia nuts
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

Instructions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 400°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Season the mahi mahi fillets with salt and pepper.
  3. In a shallow dish, whisk together the egg whites. In a separate shallow dish, mix together the macadamia nuts, parsley, and lemon juice.
  4. Dip each fillet in the egg whites, then coat in the macadamia nut mixture, pressing gently to help it adhere.
  5. Place the fillets on the prepared baking sheet and brush with the olive oil.
  6. Bake for 8-10 minutes, or until the fish is cooked through and the macadamia nuts are golden brown.
  7. Serve the mahi mahi with your choice of sides and enjoy!

Optional: You can also add some breadcrumbs to the macadamia nut mixture for a crunchier texture. You can also pan-fry the fish in a little bit of oil over medium-high heat for about 3-4 minutes on each side, until it is cooked through and the macadamia nuts are golden brown.

Here is a recipe for grilled flank steak:

Ingredients:

  • 1 flank steak (about 1 1/2 pounds)
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper

Instructions:

  1. In a small bowl, combine the olive oil, garlic, oregano, salt, and pepper.
  2. Place the flank steak in a shallow dish and coat both sides with the marinade. Cover and refrigerate for at least 1 hour or up to 8 hours.
  3. Preheat the grill to medium-high heat.
  4. Remove the flank steak from the marinade and discard the remaining marinade. Grill the steak for 6-8 minutes on each side, or until it reaches your desired level of doneness.
  5. Let the steak rest for a few minutes before slicing it thinly against the grain. Serve hot.

Optional: You can also add your favorite spices or herbs to the marinade for extra flavor. Some suggestions might be chili powder, cumin, paprika, thyme, or rosemary.

 

Of course you can feel free to spice things up a bit and add your own flare to all these recipes.  For the meats, adjust cooking times and temperatures to match how well done or rare you like your beef products.

Mahalo and let me know how it goes.
