Baked Salmon Skewers

Fresh bold honey sesame sauce is just an icing!


  • 2 lbs salmon filet, skinless
  • ¼ cup raw honey
  • 4 cloves garlic, pressed
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons toasted sesame oil
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon black pepper
  • ¼ teaspoon paprika
  • Black and white sesame seeds, optional
  • 10 wooden skewers, soaked in water for at least 30 minutes


  • Preheat the oven to 400°F (200°C).
  • Cut the salmon into 1-inch cubes.
  • In a small bowl, combine honey, garlic, lemon juice, sesame oil, paprika, salt and pepper. Mix until well combined.
  • Put the cubed salmon in a large ziploc bag and add the marinade. Close the bag, squeezing the air out.
  • Gently toss everything so that each salmon piece is coated in the sauce. Let marinate for at least 15 minutes, or up to 2 hours.
  • Thread salmon pieces onto prepared skewers and arrange on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
  • Bake for 10 minutes, or until opaque and cooked through.
  • Sprinkle sesame seeds, if you have some. Serve immediately with rice, or quinoa, and/or steamed vegetables.


Grilling Instructions: Preheat the grill to medium heat. Place the skewers on grill, and cook the salmon until it's opaque and cooked through, about 8 minutes, turning them half way with a kitchen tong.
