Tropical Tuesday-Hali’imaile’s Sashimi Napoleon


Aloha!  My fellow blogger and tweep, Suzie Salmon, over at Urban Country Style just spent a 10-day vacation to Maui and she had me longing to return.  So much  that I reminisced by going through hundreds of photos I took on my recent trip.

After my first trip to Maui 20 years ago I was hooked.  Since then I’ve been back several times and during each visit I find new places to see, activities to do and new restaurants to eat at.  I admit I do experience sensory overload when first stepping off the plane  and it takes me a few days to actually chill out and focus.  I’m not a lay-around-the-beach-all-day kinda girl, I like to get out and explore! In future blog posts I will share my favorite parts of Maui with you and throw in some tropical recipes.

Located in Upcountry Maui amidst pineapple fields is one of my favorite restaurants called Hali’imaile General Store.  You’ll be sorry if you miss it!

Bev Gannon, owner and celebrity chef, is considered Maui’s favorite chef and has won NUMEROUS awards.  Cuisine is American with Asian overtones.  You’ll see these local and fresh ingredients on the menu… Manapua buns, ginger chili cream slaw,  Thai garlic, wasabi vinaigrette, Maui onions, pineapple chutney, blackened ahi, mango lilikoi butter, coconut seafood curry, Maui Cattle Company rib eye…you get the picture.

Let me introduce to you what I always order.  Readers, please meet Sashimi Napoleon.  I’m pretty sure if Bev Gannon ever took it off the menu there would be lots of sobbing!  The recipe below is from bev’s blog. If anything please make the dressing and serve it on a soba noodle salad or other Asian inspired dish, it’s crackalicious!


Recipe: Sashimi Napoleon

¾ pound sashimi-grade tuna
1 bunch radish sprouts
8 shiso leaves
¼ pound smoked salmon, thinly sliced
½ cup sliced pickled ginger, for garnish
1 tablespoon tobiko (flying fish roe), for garnish

Tartare Base:
2 tablespoons good-quality mayonnaise
1 teaspoon Vietnamese garlic-chile sauce
2 tablespoon chopped green onion, white and green parts
2 teaspoons tobiko (flying fish roe)
1 tablespoon chopped fresh cilantro

Crispy Wontons:
18 (3-inch-square) wonton skins
Peanut oil, for frying

2 tablespoons rice vinegar
2 tablespoons soy sauce
½ cup olive oil
2 tablespoons wasabi paste
2 teaspoons ground toasted sesame seeds

Cut ¼ pound of the tuna against the grain into 12 thin slices. Finely chop the other ½ pound for the tartare.
To prepare the tartare base, combine all the ingredients and mix well. Add the chopped fish and stir lightly to combine.
To prepare the crispy wontons, in a saucepan, pour in the oil to a depth of 1 inch and heat to 375 degrees. Add the wonton skins and fry, turning once, for 8 to10 seconds on each side, until light golden brown. Keep the wontons flat by using tongs to uncurl them. Using a wire skimmer, transfer to paper towels to drain. Allow to cool.

To prepare the dressing, in a bowl, combine all the ingredients and mix well.
To assemble, first roll the tuna slices up into rose-shaped bundles. Reserving 2 tablespoons of the radish sprouts, stack in the following order: wonton skin, one-sixth of the tartare mixture, shiso leaf, wonton skin, one-sixth of the smoked salmon, radish sprouts, wonton skin, 2 tuna rolls.
Sprinkle the top of the each napoleon with the reserved radish sprouts. Drizzle 3 tablespoons of the dressing around each plate. Garnish with pickled ginger and tobiko.

To serve, cut through the entire stack with a knife, and smash the layers together with a fork to blend the flavors.

Serves 6 as an appetizer

This is what my sister ordered

    I must say, I will be taking notes on your Tropical Tuesday for next time I go back to Maui. I’ve been there 20+ times but have tended to fall into the same old habits while there…long hike, work out, lawn chair, book, wine, wine, wine ;) . I cannot wait to get back there and try your recommendations. I will add one here for you. The Hyatt at Ka’anapali’s restaurant called Umalu has Ahi Poke Nachos with Surfing Goat dairy’s goat cheese. If food was fashion and I was Rachael Zoe I would have to say I DIE! Soooo good!
