they cooked up the fish the other night ... I was in heaven!
They fried up the kole (sorry, I don't know the English names of most fish ... ku'u, on the other hand, not only knows the English names of fish, but she also knows the scientific names of these fish - that's cause she's really smart) and they steamed the uhu with lup cheung (Chinese sausage), brocolli, carrots, and lemon ... it was soooooo delicious! *smacking my lips* ... I love have functional children who love learning from the uncles
Because, the Hawaiian system of categorizing fishies is much more descriptive than the English system. Wherease, we need three names to differentiate these fishies, the English language only sees these fishies as one.
For instance, the word "snow". Hawaiians only have one word for "snow", but Alaskans must have tons of words for it.
I ate too much fish when I was in Hawaii. Seemed like every meal was mahi-mahi. For breakfast, lunch, dinner, snacks... they'd have mahi-mahi pancakes, mahi-mahi pizza... grilled, fried, boiled, steamed, with vegetables, with other fish, as casseroles, as pasta............
