Ready Time

35 mins


8 servings


  • 1 pound boneless, skinless salmon fillets, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 1/2 cup teriyaki sauce
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons grated fresh ginger
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes (optional)
  • 40 bamboo skewers, soaked in water for at least 30 minutes
  • 1/4 cup sliced green onions for garnish
  • 1/4 cup toasted sesame seeds for garnish


Preheat your grill to medium-high heat.

In a large bowl, whisk together teriyaki sauce, soy sauce, brown sugar, grated ginger, garlic, sesame oil, black pepper, salt, and crushed red pepper flakes (if using).

Add the salmon pieces to the bowl and toss to coat with the teriyaki mixture.

Let marinate for at least 30 minutes, or up to 2 hours in the refrigerator.

Remove the bamboo skewers from the water and thread 2-3 pieces of salmon onto each skewer, leaving a small space between each piece.

Place the skewers on the grill and cook for 8-10 minutes, turning occasionally, until the salmon is cooked through and slightly charred.

Garnish with sliced green onions and toasted sesame seeds.

Serve immediately.


For best results, make sure to soak those bamboo skewers for at least 30 minutes so they don’t catch fire on the grill.

Using fresh ginger really makes a difference in this recipe, so try not to skip it.

If you’re short on time, you can marinate the salmon for just 30 minutes, but 2 hours will give you even better flavor.

Don’t overcrowd the skewers with too much salmon – leave a little space between each piece so they cook evenly.

When grilling, make sure to oil your grates first to prevent the salmon from sticking.

These skewers are perfect for a party or potluck because they’re easy to grab and go.

You can also make them ahead of time and serve at room temperature if needed.

If you like a little heat, don’t skip the crushed red pepper flakes – they add a nice spicy kick!
