Kauai fish and poi

A simple, tasty meal of dried fish and poi (two fingah!) – I was raised on this stuff.

Time to pop the top button and loosen the waistband — luau parties, a constant flow of family dinners, and restaurant meals have taken its toll. There’s only so much you can put away before the belly starts aching and groans indigestion late at night, but when it comes to dried fish and poi, it’s soul satisfaction that counts. Look at it as comfort food, and the images of fish drying under the sun was a special contribution from a man who knows the way to his daughter’s stomach. This is but a puny example of how much my father used to process back when akule was plentiful. Poi is the accompanying starch of choice but rice is an accepted second if wanton 2-finger dipping is not your thing.
