Lomi Lomi Salmon

The popular salmon luau dish called "lomi lomi" is named for the Hawaiian words rub, massage, or knead. Traditionally, the salt is rubbed onto the salmon, and the salmon, onions, and tomato are then massaged together with your hands. We opted for a tidier preparation. Soaking the diced white onion mellows the flavor by taming its sharp bite.
