Teriyaki Salmon Kebabs With Ginger Sauce
1 1/2 lbs. salmon fillets, skin removed, cut into 16-20 cubes
1/2 cup teriyaki sauce, plus some to baste the fish
16 1-inch cubes green bell pepper
16 wedges of red onion
2 teaspoons toasted sesame seeds (see note)
* vegetable oil for the grill
1/2 cup mayonnaise
2 teaspoons freshly grated ginger
2 tablespoons teriyaki sauce
1 teaspoon sesame oil
Place the salmon in a bowl; pour in the 1/2 cup of teriyaki sauce. Toss to coat the fish; cover and marinate in the fridge for one to two hours.
While the salmon marinates, combine the ginger sauce ingredients in a small bowl and cover and store in the fridge until the salmon is cooked.
When the salmon has fully marinated, divide and thread the fish, bell pepper and onion on four long skewers. Discard the marinade.
Preheat your barbecue or indoor grill to medium-high. Oil the grill to help prevent the skewers from sticking. Cook the kebabs for 3 to 4 minutes per side, or until the salmon is just cooked through. Baste the fish with a little teriyaki sauce after turning over. Divide the skewers among plates and sprinkle with the toasted sesame seeds. Serve a small bowl or dollop of the ginger sauce alongside for dipping.
Cook's Note: To toast the sesame seeds, place them in a non-stick skillet and set over medium heat. Cook, swirling the pan from time to time, until lightly toasted, about five minutes
