Hawaiian Kanpachi collars are a very popular item here in Kona, and we sell them at our walk-up facility down here at Keahole point. You can pick up a five pound bag of collars and prepare this dish. Our fish is versatile and you will find that there is no wrong way to cook it. Grilling is popular, because the fish will literally fall off the bone. Our featured Chef, Chad Yamamoto, has created a Chimichuri that pairs so well with the char of the meat.
