Restaurant Rambling: Koloa Fish Market (Koloa, Kauai, Hawaii)

In Koloa, near the Koloa Big Save is the Koloa Fish Market. Besides selling fresh fish and poke. They also sell plate lunches. I stopped there for lunch one day.

Here's today's selection of fresh fish.

Smoked Marlin with Teriyaki Sauce

Assorted Poke (raw fish with fixin's)
I got a Kalua Pork Plate Lunch. It comes with rice, chicken long rice, lomi lomi salmon and some poke.

I also brought some Korean Poke and Smoked Marline Poke home.

My first question was 'what is poke?', but you've answered that. So now - what is 'lomi lomi salmon'?

Hi Linda, Thanks for visiting! Poke is a Hawaiian appetizer. It's cubed raw fish (usually ahi or tuna) that is mixed with onions, sea salt, soy sauce, sesame seed oil, limu seaweed and other things. Lomi lomi salmon is a side dish in Hawaii with fresh tomatoes, salted salmon, onions and salt.

We had the plate lunch at the Koloa Fish Market...delicious. That day it rained so hard and everyone just stood crowding the door, when we got up to leave someone said "it’s raining too hard", we said "we are from Oregon, this is nothing" and went out into the warm rain. It was coming down very hard but it was so warm it felt good.

Doc-It is a little shop isn't it? Haha, at least in Hawaii it's warm rain. =0)
