1 1/4 lb pork butt, cut into large chunks
2 tablespoons Hawaiian or kosher salt
1 lb salted butterfish or salmon, soaked in cold water for 3 hours and drained (see note)
1 lb lu'au or fresh spinach leaves
12 ti leaves (you may substitute corn husks or banana leaves)
To make your own salted fish, rub 2 tbsp Hawaiian or kosher salt over 1 lb of fish fillets and let stand for 1 hour before using (no need to soak it in cold water afterwards).
