I've lived on Guam my whole life and this is definitely a traditional dish made as is, and of course delicious. Now living California, it can be difficult to get a fresh coconut, not to mention the fact that I don't have the old school coconut grater my mom used, thus making it a chore to grate a fresh coconut. Of course you must use a FRESH coconut to get that wonderful authentic flavor. I usually make this dish for my husband without the coconut, store-bought whole roasted chicken(to save time), and with minced scallions OR chives. Sometimes I chop fresh baby spinach and add to the dish to give more color and nutrition. I absolutely LOVE kelaguen.. whether it's beef, deer, fish, or EVEN SPAM. Yes, I said spam. Man, I miss home...
