Asian Honey Salmon Skewers

Salmon is both tasty and healthy, packed with omega-3s, good oils, vitamins and minerals. Add fresh ingredients to these salmon skewers for a simple, flavourful meal.

Serves: 2

Time: 35 minutes


  • 1 clove of garlic, peeled and crushed
  • 1 x 3cm piece of fresh ginger, finely grated
  • 1 or 2 small red chillies, sliced (optional)
  • 1 lime, halved
  • 3 tablespoons low-salt soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 teaspoon oil
  • 2 x 120g salmon fillets, scaled and pin-boned
  • 1 tablespoon sesame seeds (optional)
  • 4 x wooden skewers, soaked in water to prevent charring


To make the marinade, combine the garlic, ginger and chillies in a small bowl, along with the zest and juice of half a lime. Add the soy sauce, honey and oil. Mix well.

Preheat your grill to medium (about 175°C) and line a baking tray with foil.

Cut salmon into 2.5cm cubes, toss them in the marinade and leave to absorb for around 10 minutes.

Thread the salmon pieces onto the skewers, leaving a bit of room between each cube, and then place onto the tray. Grill for around 8 to 10 minutes, until cooked through, turning regularly to brush with remaining marinade.

If using sesame seeds, cook them in a dry non-stick frying pan until golden. Generously sprinkle the salmon with toasted seeds. Serve with remaining lime wedges.

Serving suggestion: complement the meal with sautéed greens and brown rice.
