20 miles north is the fishing town of Kawaihae harbor and little fish houses sell the freshest seafood meals. Around noon the fishermen bring in their catch from several hours of fishing and today’s fish was mahi mahi. The boys resisted buying a whole fish (thank goodness) but the fillet they brought back was ready to barbq with little prep work. No fishy smell and a dab of olive oil, little salt and pepper and it was ready for the grill.
Next to the fish market is a farmers market where they bought organic onions, avocados and potatoes. Okay, russet potatoes may not come from Hawaii but the avocado is grown here and is the size of a softball. Creamy and buttery and huge!
