Favorite ideas for cooking with local ingredients (Maui or Hawaii in general)

Travelwren | Jan 8, 2012 08:36 AM

What's your favorite meal, dish or snack to prepare when you're in Hawaii?

We'll be staying in a condo in Wailea on Maui for eight days in late February early March and plan to do most of our own cooking. I'm getting some good ideas for where to shop for local ingredients on another thread. I was wondering if folks had some favorite ideas or recipes for meals and sunset celebration snacks they'd be willing to share, especially ones that use local fish, produce or other local supplies.

We'll be out and about quite a bit, so relatively easy prep would be nice. We'll have access to an herb garden, gas grill and what is supposed to be a reasonably equipped kitchen. We'd love to focus on simple meals where local ingredients can shine! That said, we're also willing to take some time and care to fix our food. Hanging out in the kitchen or by the grill with whoever's doing the kitchen seems to be one of our more natural kinds of entertainment.

Thanks for any advice you can share!

P.S. Suggestions for wine pairings or great drinks to enjoy on the lanai would also be welcome!
