Lomi Lomi Salmon

Print Email


2-pound side of fresh Salmon
Hawaiian salt
4-6 tomatoes, chopped (to taste)
1-2 Maui onions (to taste)
1 bunch green onions, chopped
pepper (to taste)

Salt the salmon.  Layer the bottom of a glass casserole dish with salt.  Lay salmon skin side down.  Sprinkle salt on top and massage into the salmon. (lomi lomi means ‘to massage’ in Hawaiian) Put more salt over salmon, cover, and let sit in the refrigerator for 24 hours.  Rinse salmon completely with cold water and dry with paper towels.  Cut the salmon into 1/2 inch cubes and put into large mixing bowl.  Chop tomatoes, Maui onions, and green onions, into same size as salmon and add to bowl.  Lomi lomi the mixture until thoroughly incorporated and put ice cubes in the bowl to ensure that it’s ice cold when served.  This should yield a lot of servings.
