“Tell the kids it's Hawaiian night and relax. Consider serving coconut custard for dessert. If all you have is a mild teriyaki sauce, spice it up with some extra ground ginger (about 1/2 teaspoon). I found this recipe in Pop It, Stir It, Fix It, Serve It. I have not tried this recipe, but I'm posting it for safe keeping..”
