  • ½ lb (225g) salted salmon
  • 2 large or 3 medium tomatoes, seeded, diced
  • ½ white onion (or any other sweet onion), chopped
  • ¼ cup green onion, chopped
  • 1 cup crushed ice
  • Lettuce leaves for serving (optional)


  • Remove bones and skin from the salmon. In a medium bowl, flake the fish into small pieces by hand. You can chop it roughly before doing that. Add tomatoes and white onion. Mix everything together with your hands. Chill covered for few hours and add the crushed ice and green onion just before serving. Mix thoroughly and enjoy!


If using unsalted salmon, wash the fish and generously rub it with sea salt on both sides. Wrap the salmon tightly with plastic wrap and let stand in the fridge overnight. Remove from the fridge, rinse off the salt and soak in cold water for few hours, changing the water several times. It will remove the excess salt and soften the fish. Then use in the recipe as stated above.
