How To Make Lau Lau

One bite of this lau lau dish will transport you to the Hawaiian paradise, using salted chicken, pork, and butterfish wrapped in taro leaves.

Prep: 30 mins
Cook: 4 hrs 30 mins
Total: 5 hrs


  • ½ lb salt butterfish, rinsed several times to remove excess salt
  • ½ lb pork butt, cut into 1-inch cubes
  • 4 chicken thighs, boneless
  • 1 tbsp Hawaiian sea salt
  • 8 ti leaves
  • 1 lb taro leaves


  1. Season fish, pork, and chicken with Hawaiian sea salt. Place 2 ti leaves in an "X" on a flat surface for each of the 4 servings.

  2. Place ¼ of each of the fish, pork, and chicken onto the center of 3 or 4 taro leaves. Wrap securely with the taro leaves, then place each wrap on a set of ti leaves. Tie the ends of the ti leaves together with a piece of string.

  3. Place the bundles in a large steamer, and steam for 3 to 4 hours.

  4. Serve and enjoy!
