This sweet and salty Grilled Salmon Skewer is reminiscent of candied salmon that you may find in your grocery story. The marinade is lovely and sticky, sweet with a touch of salty, which pairs perfectly with the salmon.
When served on skewers, it can easily be treated as an appetizer, or as part of a dinner or lunch when atop a meal-sized salad. It make part of a nice light dinner or lunch served on a leafy green salad alongside Asparagus and Pea Soup.
Be sure to soak the skewers while your salmon is marinating so they won’t burn on the grill and brush generously with the marinade while cooking.
