Ingredients

Luau Sauce:

Directions

Soak rice stick noodles in warm water for 1 hour. Drain. Cut red onion and red bell pepper into long thin matchstick strips. Heat a large skillet pan; add oil, onion, mushrooms, seafood and salt and pepper, to taste. Fry quickly on high until seafood is almost done, 2 to 3 minutes. Season with salt and pepper and add garlic butter and scrape the bottom of the pan while it melts. Add spinach and toss well. Then add the soaked noodles and toss well. Place the noodles in the center of a small oval dish. Top with seafood. Pour Luau Sauce around the rim. Garnish with lemon wedges, orchid, and red pepper strips.

Luau Sauce:

Steam leaves and cook for 45 minutes with baking soda until tender. Transfer to ice bath for 1 minute. Drain in perforated pan. Squeeze liquid out using cheesecloth. Place the curry paste, ginger, lemongrass, and coconut milk in a saucepan and stir to dissolve. Bring to a simmer for 10 minutes. Heat sugar in a fry pan until it is a light brown caramel. Add the fish sauce and water. Continue to cook until the lumps are dissolved. Add the coconut milk mixture and salt. Simmer for 20 minutes. Strain through a fine sieve. Completely cool sauce and then stir in cream. Blend luau leaves with cooled sauce in blender. 

Cook's Note

You may substitute 4 ounces cooked spinach for the luau leaves. Omit baking soda.
