This addictive appetizer is of Japanese origin, but it first achieved popularity in Hawaii- and is now considered a "Polynesian" specialty.Whichever it is it is loved at my family table. This is on our Super Bowl menu as well. This recipe was given to me by a friend who lived in Japan for 3 years during wartime. She has given me many of her recipes.
