Asian-style salmon skewers

This super healthy and low-fat dish can be adapted to use chicken instead of fish.

Serves 2 Prep time 10 minutes Cook time 25 minutes



  • 1 lime
  • 3 tbsp low-salt soy sauce
  • 1 clove of garlic
  • 1 tsp groundnut oil
  • 240g salmon fillets
  • 1 tbsp sesame seeds
  • 3cm piece of ginger
  • 1 tbsp runny honey


  1. To prepare the marinade, crush the garlic into a shallow bowl, finely grate the ginger and add the zest of half a lime.
  2. Add the soy, juice from half the lime, honey and oil, and mix together until combined well.
  3. Meanwhile preheat a medium grill and line a baking tray with foil.
  4. Cut the salmon into chunks and toss them in the marinade, before leaving for around 10 minutes to absorb the flavour.
  5. Thread the salmon onto 4 skewers, leaving a little space between each piece and place onto the lined tray.
  6. Cook through until around 10 minutes, until the salmon glaze begins to take some colour.
  7. During cooking, turn frequently and top up with the remaining marinade for extra flavour.
  8. Meanwhile, lightly toast the sesame seeds before tipping onto a plate and leaving to cool.
  9. Once cooked completely, transfer the skewers to a plate and sprinkle with the toasted same seeds before serving on a bed of green vegetables and brown rice.
