-Denarau Island, Nadi-
Personal Deviation + Mission to Nadi + Personal Deviation, Day 8 (see previously 6.106 Rourou Taster).
Arrived last Friday, here through tomorrow to attend a nutrition conference.
This is my second visit to Fiji (see most recently 5.180 Mahi Mahi with Snake Beans…).
Kovu is a Fijian dish. Consists of meat or seafood (e.g., shrimp = “uru”), marinated in coconut milk (“lolo”), along with spices (e.g., turmeric = “kari ni viti”) and aromatics (e.g., onion, ginger), wrapped in a banana leaf (“drau ni jaina”), steamed.
