Hawaiian Recipe Infredients:
  • 1 lb. cocktail wieners or franks, cut in 1" pieces
  • 2 tsp. French's mustard
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 3 tablespoons flour
  • 1/2 cup cider vinegar
  • 1 cup pineapple juice
Hawaiian Recipe Instructions
Combine all ingredients except wieners (see note). Heat, stirring until sauce comes to a boil. Add wieners and heat through. Keep in a chafing dish or Crockpot on warm setting. Serve with cocktail forks or toothpicks.

Note: Use only half the amount of vinegar at first, since some vinegars are stronger than others; an excellent quality vinegar will make the dish while a cheap vinegar will be overpowering. Taste after mixing; if the vinegar is too strong, add the remaining 1/4 cup in water. Adjust to your own taste.

Makes 4 or 5 dozen appetizers.

* 2 pounds fresh tuna steaks, cubed
* 1 cup soy sauce
* 3/4 cup chopped green onions
* 2 tablespoons sesame oil
* 1 tablespoon toasted sesame seeds
* 1 tablespoon crushed red pepper (optional)
* 2 tablespoons finely chopped macadamia nuts

Hawaiian Recipe Instructions

Hawaiian Reicpe Ingredients :
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 1/3 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1/2 cup soy sauce
  • 3-4 cloves garlic, peeled and minced
  • 1-2 teaspoons fresh oregano
  • 1-2 teaspoons fresh Rosemary
  • 1-2 teaspoons fresh basil (optional)
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black or lemon pepper
  • 1 4 lb. chicken broiler chicken, halved
  • olive oil spray (for use during cooking)
Hawaiian Recipe Instructions:
Wash chicken and place both halves in a large Ziploc bag.

Squeeze lemon juice; add zest (the yellow portion of the peel) for extra flavor.

Combine remaining ingredients with the lemon juice and place in bag. Refrigerate for several hours (up to 6 hours), turning occasionally.

Place chicken on broiler rack, skin side down or on grill; keep chicken about 7 inches away from heat. If grilling, set chicken on opposite side of the coals to avoid flare-ups. At start of cooking, brush chicken with marinade , then discard marinade so that you're not tempted to use it during the cooking (for safety's sake).

Note: For extra flavor, sprinkle chicken liberally with salt, pepper, garlic and onion powder just before cooking. Substitute lemon pepper for the black pepper, if available, for an extra zesty kick.

Broil or grill chicken for 20 minutes or until browned on one side, avoiding flare ups. At this point, spray the chicken lightly with olive oil spray; then turn it to the other side and spray again. Cook for another 10 minutes or so until chicken is done (juice no longer runs pink).

Variation: Wine vinegar may be substituted for the lemon juice. If fresh herbs are not available, substitute 1/2-3/4 teaspoon dried.

Serve garnished with sprigs of Rosemary and a lemon wedge.
