Lomi Salmon

Lomi Lomi means to massage. Lomi Salmon is a super simple and yummy Salmon & Tomato dish. I found this recipe online but usually don't measure anything. Just chop and mix, then serve on Ice. I also used cherry tomatoes, because they looked best at the store.

Lomi Lomi Salmon

1 cup diced salted salmon **
5 medium tomatoes, diced
1 medium round onion, diced
1/4 cup thinly sliced green onions
Sea salt
1 cup crushed ice

In a large bowl, cover the salted salmon with water and soak overnight. Drain and rinse the salmon.

In a large bowl add the diced salmon, tomatoes, onion, and green onion, and mix well. Add sea salt if needed, to taste (the salted salmon is usually salty enough). Chill, and add the crushed ice just before serving.

** to make Salted Salmon, pour a large amount (1/2 to 1 cup) of sea salt over a filet of salmon in a zip bag or covered container. Let sit for a couple of day in the fridge until salmon becomes firm and salty, or cured. Rinse the salt from the salmon before dicing. Taste a small piece, if salmon is too salty, soak it in a water then rinse before using in recipe. but remember, this dish is supposed to be salty.
