Teriyaki Salmon Skewers

Teriyaki Salmon Skewers

I love grilled salmon, especially when it’s basted with the salty-sweet-umami-rich sauce used on these teriyaki salmon skewers. The sauce can be made and skewers threaded ahead of time, so this is a great quick and easy dish for entertaining too. Serve it as a starter, or add steamed rice and a simple spinach salad (see video below) for an easy dinner. The sugar in the teriyaki sauce can leave some burnt residue on your barbecue or grill pan, so soak it promptly after cooking.

Makes 6 pieces

Ingredients
  • 1 x 180g piece salmon fillet, skin off, pin-boned
  • 5 green onions
  • 6 bamboo skewers
  • Vegetable oil, for brushing
  • Ichimi togarashi (Japanese chilli powder), for sprinkling (optional)

 

Teriyaki Sauce

  • 1½ tablespoons sake
  • 1½ tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1½ tablespoons mirin
  • 2 teaspoons castor sugar
Method
  1. Make Teriyaki Sauce: combine all ingredients in a small saucepan, stirring until sugar dissolves. Bring to a simmer.
  2. Remove from heat and set aside.
  3. Cut salmon into 18 bite-sized cubes.
  4. Cut 18 pieces of green onion about 3cm long.
  5. Preheat a char-grill or barbecue plate over medium-high heat.
  6. Meanwhile, starting with a piece of green onion and alternating, thread 3 pieces of green onion and 3 pieces of salmon onto each skewer.
  7. Brush well with oil.
  8. Cook skewers for a minute or so each side, basting well with the Teriyaki Sauce.
  9. Serve teriyaki salmon skewers sprinkled with a little chilli if you like, and with remaining Teriyaki Sauce on the side.

We made the pot-sticker dumplings and bang bang chicken – once again both exceeded our expectations. My husband keeps saying it’s better ordering this than going out to restaurants as the recipes and food quality are amazing.

I loved the Fresh & Easy Chicken – simple instructions, only a few ingredients and the time factor absolutely spot on. Then came the highlight, the taste, no compromise on the enjoyment of that meal! For the time poor Fresh & Easy hits the mark indeed.

Thank you for stocking our pantry with such authentic ingredients and quality produce ... I’ve so enjoyed picking fresh leaves from the herb pots and loved listening to the chef's playlist while cooking. We really like the flexibility of cooking over a couple of days and changing the order we cook the dishes in when we want to.

I am absolutely loving these boxes! There are ingredients I have never worked with before so having the confidence to try something new is so much fun! The recipes are just amazing and the notes on what can be prep’d beforehand are a great help too. Thank you so much.

Thanks so much for the Fresh & Easy Meal, it was excellent. We regularly get another meal kit delivery – your offering is vastly superior and a similar price, so big ticks.

I'm a competent cook whose learned so much from the Recipes+Videos Packs. The recipes are yummy and Roberta’s video guidance offers so many little tips to improve flavour and organise the flow of preparation. I enjoy her warmth, sense of humour, and ability to giggle at herself when she occasionally messes up.
