I don’t marinate salmon too often, because I love the
simplicity of lemon, olive oil, and salt and pepper with the delicious
fish. But when I do marinate, my
favorite is a sweet soy sauce flavor – I think it pairs perfectly. This
past weekend we did marinated salmon kabobs with pineapple and onion on our
Firewire skewers, courtesy of my sister-in-law. These are so simple to throw
together and had tons of flavor – even after only marinating for about an
hour. Plus it was the first thing my
husband and I could agree on after he asked me if I wanted beef
bourguignon. No. No I don’t want beef
bourguignon in the middle of August in Texas.
Although maybe I do. I love beef bourguignon.
- 2 lb salmon
- ½ cup soy sauce
- ½ cup orange juice
- ¼ cup brown sugar
- ¼ cup honey
- Juice from ½ lemon
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- ¼ teaspoon chopped garlic (the jarred kind – more if you’re
- Chopped pineapple and onion for the skewers
Mix the marinade ingredients together in a Ziploc bag. Cut
the salmon into about 2-inch pieces and add to the bag. Marinate for about one
hour (up to 8 if you have time). Add all
your onions to the same skewer (s), as these take longer to grill. Brush these with olive oil and salt, and
grill for about 15-20 minutes or until tender.
Add the pineapple and salmon together on the other skewers, and grill
until the salmon is cooked through. Don't these Firewires look fun? Plus I love saying Firewire. Firewire Firewire. Highly recommend!
loved this, and I ate the leftovers on a salad the next day with Kraft toasted sesame dressing.
So so good!
