Hawaiian Luau
Hi Ellen,
I wanted to pick your brain for some ideas on what to serve for a Luau for 100 at a 30th birthday party all adults.
Dark purple Hawaiian sweet potatoes in a cold salad.
Fruit platters with mango, papaya, avocado and pineapple, maybe some pomegranate seeds for garnish
A chicken dish (roast, skewers, teriyaki-ish?)
A wonderful fish (I would do several whole fishes, baked and then chilled if summer- big redfish, or red snapper? Lomi lomi salmon? Coconut shrimp?)
pork kalua
Chicken long rice (sort of a fried rice dish)
Asian noodle salad (see my recipe; use rice noodles)
White wine sangria and beer, mai tai, blue hawaii, or chi chi(=pina colada, basically)?
Coconut cake or pie, or pineapple upside down cake, brownies with macadamia nuts

Get several kinds of Hawaiian salts, they are great and really different from any other.

You need a great party, 30 is fairly traumatic...
