Tips & Variations

Did you know that the variety of salmon you choose can make a difference in a recipe? I used Scottish Salmon for these kebabs, which is higher in fat and less oily than some other types. Norwegian Salmon is also a good option.

This recipe calls for a low-carb friendly brown sugar blend – I personally like to use this Stevia brown sugar blend, which has a good balance of flavor and carbs for my taste.

Soak your wooden skewers for a few minutes before assembling the salmon skewers. This will help keep them from charring no the grill.

Chop the veggies and salmon into fairly large chunks. If you cut them into truly bite-sized pieces, they will fall apart too easily on the grill.

I used a homemade teriyaki sauce for these salmon skewers. But you can use this base recipe with other sauces and marinades as well. Try it with this tamarind glaze or this tequila and lime marinade.

  • 1 lb salmon, cut into large chunks
  • 6 oz pineapple, about ⅓ of a fresh pineapple, chopped into large chunks

For Teriyaki Sauce


  1. In a small bowl, combine ingredients for the teriyaki marinade. Whisk to combine, and set aside. Heat the grill.
  2. Assemble the skewers. On each wooden skewer, thread several pieces of salmon, pineapple, bell pepper, zucchini and onion. You can use more or less skewers as needed.

  3. Brush the teriyaki marinade onto the salmon kebabs, coating all of the salmon and veggies. Reserve remaining marinade.

  4. Place the salmon kebabs on the hot grill. Grill for 3-4 minutes on each side, turning once, or until salmon is just cooked through and veggies are slightly tender. Brush occasionally with extra marinade.

  5. Remove skewers from the grill (carefully!). Brush with extra marinade, if desired. Serve with the lime wedges and cilantro.
