Learning Hawaiian Words: Laulau

15 11 2009

Early laulau contained pork and local fish rubbed with salt, wrapped in young taro leaves called lu`au. When the whaling industry brought salted butterfish and it became the “traditional” fish to use in laulau. The meat, fish and lu`au bundles were carefully wrapped in ti leaves then baked in an imu.

Hungry yet, feeling adventurous? Here are some laulau recipes.
