Delish on the Islands I'm not the only one who loves Buzz's Original Steak House in Kailua on the Hawaiian island of Oahu. e Obama family frequently spends Christmas at a vacation rental nearby and eats at Buzz's. e Clintons like it, too. In fact, Buzz's even has a designated president's table marked with a plaque. e menu here has lots of tempting dishes, but the calamari steak, offered as an appetizer or an entrée, is one of the most popular. Buzz's serves more than 2,400 calamari steaks every month. Unlike the typical preparation, they use the entire body rather than just the tentacles. Want to try this at home? Here's what you'll need: calamari filet, egg, panko, butter, capers, parsley, and lemon butter sauce. Dip the calamari filet in an egg bath, and then press it into panko to get a nice thick crust. Bread it twice to reduce moisture and ensure crispness, then pan fry it in clarified butter. After frying, plate it and top with capers, chopped parsley, and lemon butter sauce. I realize that this recipe is a little vague, but help is available on YouTube where one of Buzz's chefs posted a demo. Simply search "Hawaii's Kitchen: Buzz's Original Steak House Part 3." Preparing food that we enjoyed away from home brings back memories of special moments and allows us to savor them all over again. Bon appétit. 1 cup cooked red quinoa 1 cup flour 5 eggs 1 Tbsp vanilla 2 tsp baking powder 3 Tbsp port or sherry 3 Tbsp white sugar dash of salt dash of cinnamon Mix all ingredients and leave to rest for 30 minutes. Cook in a frying pan without oil or butter for no more than 2 minutes each side. 1 qt sugar syrup 4 pears, peeled and seeded (Bosc are my favorite) 1 whole cinnamon stick 5 star anise cloves 1 whole vanilla bean 2 tsp fresh lemon juice To prepare sugar syrup, combine 1 quart water and 4 cups sugar and boil until sugar dissolves. Peel pears and core from the bottom. Boil pears in the sugar syrup with all the remaining ingredients for about 20 minutes (until the pear is "soft enough"). Remove, cool to desired temperature, and enjoy.
