kokohead foods smoked ahi spread

Have you tried this yet? I don't know what I was looking at online but a picture of this came up...and then I needed to try it.

Apparently, it was developed by Chef Kevin Hanney who is the owner of 12th Avenue Grill and Koko Head Cafe and has been around for 18 years?! (where have I been?)

I called around and found it at Tamura's (another place is R. Field inside of Beretania Foodland). (Before you go to buy this, please call to make sure they have some)

It really is nice with the smokiness and creaminess.

This spread/dip went nicely with lavosh.

Of course, now I want to try re-creating it (smoked ahi (tuna), mayo, tamarind, onions, anchovies, chili pepper, garlic, salt)

I'm flying out today.

It was a shorter trip than in the past, but I got to spend time with family, meet up with a lot of friends and eat out at some of the places on my list.

The weather was often pretty miserable with the humidity and heat. Traffic was a nightmare at times.

I was often the "dinner" for mosquitos and I was also reminded "loudly" several times that "Kat, you do not tan".

I know it is hurricane season here, but I hope Hawaii's weather stablizes soon, it is definitely killer without an a/c.

Be well everyone.

Talk to you from the other side of the world.

I made this before. The tamarind and anchovies are all ingredients in Worcestershire sauce. In my opinion is tuna drained well, mayo, shoyu, Worcestershire, liquid smoke, garlic powder, onion powder. Good luck!

Take care.
