In Hawaiian, lomilomi means to massage, or in this case to break the salmon into small pieces, which are then mixed with tomatoes, onions, and other small condiments, giving it a delicious tangy taste that goes great with poi. This style of fish preparation, introduced to Hawaii by early western sailors, is a delightful surprise and a must-have item at any luau.
