Dave's Pickled Maui Onions

Print Friendly and PDF

While vacationing on Oahu, we got to taste Dave Kusumoto's flavorful Maui pickled onions with freshly harvested ogo, a true delicacy. Each bite bursts with a perfect blend of sweet, tangy and vinegary flavors. The ogo is a hard to find, but you can substitute it with cooked shrimp, carrots, green peppers, daikon or even jalapenos, if you wish.  You can find the Noh seasoning mix at Hawaiian and Portuguese markets.
1 pkg Noh Portuguese Fish Vinha Dalhos seasoning mix
1/4 cup water
1 cup vinegar
1/2 cup sugar
3 medium Maui onions, cut into 8ths
2 cups hot water, plus 1/4 cup water

Combined the Noh mix with 1/4 cup water, vinegar and sugar until blended. Place the cut onions into a quart size jar, pressing down firmly. Pour 2 cups of hot water over the onions, and let stand for a few minutes. Drain the water, then add the sauce covering the onions. Let it stand for 2-3 days in the refrigerator.
