Serves: 12 

  • 500g (20 oz) salmon fillets, without skin
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1 tablespoon rice vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon minced ginger root
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • pinch of freshly ground black pepper
  • 3 lemons, cut into 12 wedges
  • 12 skewers

Prep:45min  ›  Cook:8min  ›  Ready in:53min 

  1. Slice salmon fillets lengthwise into 12 long strips, and thread each onto a soaked wooden skewer. Place in a shallow dish.
  2. In a bowl, whisk together the soy sauce, honey, vinegar, ginger, garlic and pepper. Pour over skewers, turning to coat. Let stand at room temperature for 30 minutes. When finished marinating, transfer marinade to a small saucepan, and simmer for several minutes.
  3. Preheat barbecue for medium-high heat.
  4. Lightly oil cooking grate. Thread 1 lemon wedge onto the end of each skewer. Cook skewers 4 minutes per side, brushing often with marinade, until fish flakes easily with a fork.


Be sure to soak wooden skewers in water for 10 minutes before barbecuing to prevent burning.

I tested this recipe last night and it was a hit! I'll definately be serving this at a party next week. It's a fairly mild marinade that doesn't overwhelm the salmon. Thanks for the great recipe! - 07 Aug 2008


Used different ingredients. I added some seasme oil to the marinade along with cayenne pepper and seasoning salt. After I brushed on the salmon, I dusted some ginger right on the salmon and let it sit there for like 20. - 07 Aug 2008
