Recipe: Lomi Lomi Salmon

P2Yum!  This is normally a side dish in Hawaii, and it’s usually made with fresh raw salmon that you salt yourself for a few hours.  However, I needed to have a recipe that would come close for P2, and this does the trick!

Now before you knock my block off, I know that salmon is not a protocol legal food.  However, I have suggested it to members of Boot Camp and my clients over the years without any ill effects.

In fact, the can of Wild Pink Salmon that I often choose (Bumble Bee) has these counts:

60 Calories
1.5g Fat
12g Protein
0g Carbohydrate; 0g Dietary Fiber
30mg Cholesterol; 180mg Sodium; 125mg Potassium

Not bad numbers for a P2 protein!

I serve this on a bed of lettuce (which I consider a “free” food on P2), I count the tomatoes as a fruit and the onions are the veggie, so this is a complete meal.
