DIRECTIONS

  • In a large skillet, sweat the onions and garlic in butter over medium heat until the onions are clear.
  • add the flour, salt, pepper and cook for 1 minute, stirring. do not brown the roux.
  • whisk the coconut milk and water slowly into the skillet to prevent any lumps from forming.
  • bring the sauce to a boil and reduce by half, stir to prevent sticking. remove from heat. set aside.
  • spray a casserole dish with pan release.
  • drain the water from the taro. add the coconut sauce and toss to coat the slices.
  • pour the taro slices in the casserole dish and spread evenly.
  • cover with foil and bake at 350*f for 30 minutes.
  • remove foil and sprinkle panko bread crumbs. return to oven and bake at 400*f for 5 minutes or until bread crumbs are light brown.
  • remove from oven and let it rest at room temperature for 10 minutes before serving.
  • goes great with any grilled meat or fish.
  • if you want to sprinkle parmesan cheese or romano cheese go ahead -- i'm sure the manmakahnas won't mind. cheese is a guamanian adaption so make them happy.
