Added to this recipe a 1 hour curing of the salmon in fresh lime juice. The salmon was super-salty after removing from the salt so I rinsed it in H20 then let it soak in fresh-squeezed lime juice for an hour before patting dry. It was a hit! Thanks for posting this!
My 5 year old daughter discovered Lomi Lomi on our recent trip to Kauai and loved it! She thought this was a good representation that we could make at home. Everyone who tried it loved this recipe.
