Lomi Salmon

One of our favorite dishes in Hawaii is Lomi Salmon. We’ve gorged ourselves on it every visit. Recently we have been able to find this dish in specialty restaurants and stores. But before that we made our own.

Lomi Salmon
2 cups diced salted salmon
6 medium tomatoes, diced 
1 white onion, chopped      
1/2 cup chopped green onion
Sea salt to taste
Cayenne pepper to taste
 In a medium bowl, stir together the salted salmon, tomatoes, white onion, green onion, sea salt and cayenne pepper. Chill for at least 30 minutes before serving. Serve with white rice. Serves 12

Sometimes the salmon is salty enough; taste it first before adding any salt. If the fish is excessively salty, you can soak it over night and rinse prior to preparing this dish.
