Going home to Hawaii is always great, but this last time I visited my hometown, it was even better! I spent a week with my family and friends, celebrating my cousin’s wedding in one of the most beautiful places in the world—Oahu.

The newlyweds picked their favorite foods to serve at the reception dinner—Ahi Poke, Macadamia Nut Crusted Mahi-Mahi, Herbal Potatoes and Chicken, and Slow Roasted Beef and Steamed Vegetables. The smells of the main course lingered in the hall while the guests enjoyed an arugula salad set in a wanton bowl topped with a Hawaiian vinaigrette dressing.

My favorite dish that was served was the Macadamia Nut Crusted Mahi-Mahi. Although I don’t have the exact recipe from the caterer, my mom and I crafted this recipe based on our favorite dish and it’s great, too!
