Honey Smoked Salmon Lomi Lomi Salad

In Hawaiian, lomi traditionally means "to knead, to rub, or soothe; to work in and out, as the paws of a contented cat.” In Honey Smoked Fish Co. language, it simply means a delicious, salmon-drenched salad. 

Serves 4-6


  • 1 lb Honey Smoked Salmon, flaked (any flavor)
  • 1/4 cup arugula, rough chopped
  • 2 roma tomatoes, seeded and small diced
  • 1/4 of 1 medium English cucumber, small diced
  • 4 scallions, thinly sliced
  • 1 jalapeño, seeded and small diced
  • 2 tsp toasted sesame oil 
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • Toasted sesame seeds, garnish
  • Roasted macadamia nuts, garnish


In a large mixing bowl, combine Honey Smoked Salmon, arugula, tomatoes, English cucumbers, scallions, jalapeno, sesame oil and lime juice. Toss until well combined (traditionally, the salmon is flaked and “massaged” with the other ingredients by hand). Once the salad is ready, it can be served in wonton cups and garnished with toasted sesame seeds and/or roasted macadamia nuts.
