In Hawaii, we celebrate "Fat Tuesday" with Portugese sweet bread or malasadas. Here is a recipe from Punahou's carnival. Malasadas is the biggest seller in the carnival.

Malasadas are one of the all time favorite snacks at community functions and fund-raisers. If you make this, you will rapidly become popular with all of your local friends. A non-traditional (read haole) way of preparing this is to add nutmeg or cinnamon to the sugar mixture that is used to coat the maladsadas.

Ingredients:

1 package yeast (1 T)
1 teaspoon sugar
1/4 cup warm water

6 cups flour
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup melted butter or margarine
1 cup water
1 cup evaporated milk
6 eggs

1 quart vegetable oil (to cook)
extra sugar

Procedure
Dissolve yeast, sugar and water and set aside. Beat eggs. Measure flour into mixing bowl and add salt. Make a well in the flour, pour yeast mixture, eggs and other ingredients. Beat in circular motion until the dough is soft. Cover, let raise until double. Turn dough over but do not punch down. Cover and let raise again. Heat oil to 375 degrees and drop dough by teaspoon full into oil and cook until brown. Shake in brown bag with sugar. Best when hot.

Note: If the malasadas have a tendency to come out with the center still doughy, turn the heat down on the oil which will allow them to cook longer.

alaskan pollack, pronounced pah-luck, is often used to make imitation crab legs. if you've had a california roll, you've probably had pollack.

pollock, pronounced poh-lock, is a slang term for a person of polish nationality or ancestry. it's an insult or a term of endearment, depending on how it's used, and how well you know the person you are referring it to, kind of like calling an irishman a paddy.

Or calling a Cajun a coonass.

In Chicago (2nd largest Polish population after Warsaw), it's spelled Polack.
