Contemporary Passover Seder Dinner Menu


Hawaiian Heaven

This menu consists of easy-to-prepare dishes that will make you think you're on vacation in Hawaii - where my husband eats poke every day!  A cool, delicious treat in the summer, and a fantasy meal in the winter!

Pineapple, Bell Pepper, and Cucumber Gazpacho (see recipe)
Poke - Raw Marinated Tuna, Hawaiian-style (see recipe)
Seaweed Salad (recipe to come)
Mango Cream Parfaits (see recipe)

The tuna can also be quickly and very lightly seared (stir-fried), a la Sam Choy, the famous Hawaiian chef.  It can be served as a main course with the Seaweed Salad, or on top of a bed of lettuce or julienned vegetables.  The Mango Cream Parfaits can also be made with peaches (very ripe, skinned and pitted), instead of the mango.

My next Hawaiian dish to recreate: Lillikoi (passionfruit) Cheesecake.

Others prefer a dairy meal, which might include the following traditional foods:
