Steamed Mahimahi Laulau
Glossy, green Hawaiian ti ("tee") leaves are traditionally used both to wrap food and in flower arrangements. Prep and Cook Time: about 1 1/2 hours. Notes: Find ti leaves at www.tropicalgardensofmaui.com or at florists' shops (ask for leaves that have not been sprayed). You can also use banana leaves, available frozen in Asian- and Latin-food markets (they aren't as flexible, but will work). Wrap the laulau up to 4 hours ahead, then cover and chill (if chilled, steam for an extra minute or two). Hawaiian red clay salt is sold in specialty-food stores; it has a distinctive color, crunch, and earthy flavor.
