Shrimp Tacos with Fresh Fruit Salsa and Spiced Ulu Chips


Taylor Kellerman from Kualoa Ranch joins us this week in the CHS kitchen. He is the director of Diversified Agriculture and Land Stewardship at the ranch. He has no small task as he over sees almost 4,000 acres of livestock, aquaculture and the agriculture departments. Most people don’t realize how large of a responsibility this is. We know Kualoa Ranch as a place of scenic beauty tours and movies but there is much to take care of. Taylor has an extensive background working with Del Monte and Maui Pineapple Company before coming to the ranch. One of my favorite places to visit at Kualoa are the fish ponds and Taylor is very knowledgeable on that topic as well. This week we talk Kualoa Ranch, his responsibilities and of course, food while he shares his recipe for Shrimp Tacos with fresh fruit salsa and spiced ulu chips.
