This is going to sound really stupid, but if you want to make it really Hawaiian, make some SPAM kabobs! In Hawaii, you get SPAM on everything, even pizza! But you won't find any pineapple on the pizza, unlike the typical "mainland" Hawaiian pizza served in parlors!.
Just cube spam, skewer with toothpicks along with a grape tomato and maybe a bit of green bell pepper!. Nice finger food!.Www@FoodAQ@Com
