I'm very seriously allergic to fish (not shellfish). My husband and I will be visiting the Big Island and Kauai.
First, are there Hawaiian words I need to know -- ingredients or menu items that I might not recognize as containing fish?
Second, can you recommend any restaurants that are allergy-aware, particularly seafood restaurants? I can eat, and really enjoy, shellfish, but only if there is no cross-contamination and not too much cooking fish smell coming out of the kitchen. (I can tell when I walk into a place whether or not the smell will be an issue.)
