We use wild salmon in this recipe which is typically higher in Omega 3 fatty acids but lower in fat.  This makes it trickier to cook since it dries very quickly. To prevent this, try marinating the fish. Marinating salmon for just 15 minutes adds moisture and wonderful flavor. And, of course, eating anything off a skewer is a lot of fun both for kids and adults! The recipe takes very little time to prepare, especially if you cut the fish and peppers and prepare the marinade in advance.


1 pound wild salmon without skin, cut into 2 inch cubes

2 red bell peppers, cut into 2-inch squares

Wooden skewers


2 tablespoons soy sauce

1 tablespoon olive oil

1/2 teaspoon minced ginger (or less)

1/2 teaspoon minced garlic

1 teaspoon brown sugar


Whisk together the ingredients for the marinade and pour them over the fish and peppers.

Mix everything thoroughly making sure all the pieces are covered in marinade.

Marinade the mixture in the fridge for 15-20 minutes.

Preheat the broiler to 400F.

Thread the pieces of salmon and pepper on the skewers and place them under the broiler for 5-7 minutes turning once, until the fish easily flakes with a fork.

Serve with brown rice.


P.S. My girls try a small bite of red pepper each time we make these skewers and fight over the salmon!
