Where I Go Out

Behind the Scenes

Managing in an environment
"Managing in an environment where careers begin and end regularly can numb you to the importance of all. Through the recruiting process I get to interact with persons in transitionary phases, keeps me grounded and appreciating what’s really important.

Red Miso & Calamansi Lime
"Red Miso & Calamansi Lime Broiled Shellfish. Kona Lobster, Kauai Shrimp, Kona Abalone, Yellowfoot Opihi. Decadent to say the least this preparation personifies the cuisine at @minasfishhouse as it capitalized on the local bounty and layers in bold flavors.

Similar to #abalone in its texture but the oceanic flavors are significantly more herbaceous. Featured broiled with #redmiso or chilled with vinaigrette at @minasfishhouse startling December 14th.."
