Whether as an alternative lunch or fabulous carry-out, do at home dinner, few outlets on Maui’s west side have better fast food than the Fish Market in Honokawai.
I mean, how could lunch be any faster than an oyster shooter or two (buck a piece!) or a plate of sashimi just pulled from the ocean? (If there were any question regarding the shelf-life of the fish, be assured I’ve witnessed as fishermen deliver seafood snagged but hours ago.)
If you have a little more time, try the ahi “burger,” or better yet, the grilled mahi with shoyu carmelized onions on a soft bun. Any of the three tasty varieties of soup — gumbo, bisque and chowder — serve up immediately and satisfy as quickly. Salad fans rave about the garden fresh Caesar topped with grilled catch of the day or the house salad made with locally grown veggies drizzled with lavender soy dressings that’s so ono you’ll be back again tomorrow.
Besides fish in every conceivable form (gumbo, bisque, tacos, in sammies, on salads…) Fish Market also prepares pulled pork served in various wrappings, including tasty quesadillas. Crab cakes, ono, mahi, and pulled pork are also presented as a plate lunch for hearty eaters.
But it’s the shrimp ceviche, lobster salad, ahi poke and sashimi that have me hooked on the Fish Market. For a perfectly easy to assemble gourmet dinner, order small servings of each, plus six oyster shooters, a container of lobster bisque, and a maybe piece of ocean fresh fish for the grill. You’ll have a delicious and healthy dinner on the table in time to put your feet up before watching the sun set over the ocean.
