The casual dining area of the Kilauea Fish Market.

When we found the Kilauea Fish Market, we also found the best lunch on Kauai (read about the other great restaurants we’ve found on Kauai, here).

Unfortunately, we live on the mainland.

When we returned home, Velda began her quest to create an Ahi Wrap as wonderful as the one we found on Kauai.  You can make her’s today … let us know how it stacks up against her inspiration when you get to Kauai!

Ahi Sauce Ingredients

  • 1/2 tsp fresh grated ginger
  • 2-3 cloves garlic
  • 1 tsp mirin
  • 1 tsp rice wine vinegar
  • 2 T light soy sauce
  • 1 T honey
  • 1 drop hot sauce, or to taste
  • 1-2 T sesame oil
  • mayo as needed for thickening

Ahi Sauce Instructions

Mix with immersion blender.  Refrigerate overnight for the flavors to develop.

Add mayo to taste in order to thicken the sauce before serving.

Ahi Wrap Ingredients

  2. Cannot wait to try Velda’s ahi wraps! Hope I can find fresh ahi at Straub’s Market in Central West End or at Bob’s Seafood Market on Olive. We fell in love with ahi while we were in Hawaii in January. What we’ve been missing all these years, oh my!
