Traditional Lomi Lomi Salmon is made with salted salmon, which is often an acquired taste, hence the option of smoked salmon, which Chef Beverley Gannon of Maui recommends. She also adds cilantro, which is delicious but not traditional. -Michele Anna Jordan
Wine recommendations: It’s more than color coordination, it’s flavor and texture compatibility. The beautiful citrus notes in Baker Lane 2009 Rosé of Syrah from Sonoma resonate with the tomatoes and makes the salmon blossom. Domaine Tempier Bandol Rosé and Sierra Nevada Summerfest Pilsner engage the tomatoes well, too.
