Salmon and Pineapple Kabobs with Honey-Brown Sugar-Soy Sauce Marinade

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.
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!
 We loved this, and I ate the leftovers on a salad the next day with Kraft toasted sesame dressing. 
So so good!
