Thanksgiving, the Hawaiian Way.

Should we pick up a turkey or a ham? Well, on the day before thanksgiving Keawe Adventures decided to add another item to the menu. Ham, turkey, mashed potatoes, cranberry sauce, stuffing, and Oio, a local Hawaiian delicacy. Bringing Oio to the dinner table changes the norm of a traditional Thanksgiving and adds to the Hawaii spirit of having all your loved ones together to celebrate how fortunate we are.

With a camera crew in hand, well more like a GoPro operator, we stalked along the sandy, shallow coastline of Oahu’s South Shore, with a net in hand, in search of the elusive Oio. With the right tide and depth, we were gifted with one 8lb Oio and another 7lb Oio in 30 minutes. This is enough fish to feed the masses, and a usual Thanksgiving in Hawaii can bring in 10 to 20 people easily, the more the merrier.  A ton of people and plenty of food to share with your closest friends and family.

Life is short, spend time with your loved ones and be safe this holiday season.  From the Keawe Adventures family to yours, Happy Holidays.

Mahalo,
