My father worked for an airline in the 1960's, when I was a teenager, and my family lived on the island of Guam in the South Pacific. A friend of Mother's there gave her this wonderful recipe. We ate this delicious warm-weather dish often, and now I prepare it for my family.

Meet the Cook: Several years back, my sister-in-law brought this recipe on a family camping trip and we fixed it for an outdoor potluck. It was so delicious that I asked if I could have a copy to take with me. It's become a summer standard for us.
Making this dish is a team effort...I put the ingredients together, and my husband handles the grilling. We grow four kinds of wheat and canola on our farm, and we are the parents of four children - ages 18, 17, 15 and 11.
