orange-glazed salmon kebobs

19 Jun

After a day of browsing the booths at Meeker Day’s in downtown Puyallup, our family needed a nice light dinner.  These kebobs are unbelievably delicious and super easy to make!  The marinade is so yummy….citrus and garlic.  The salmon cooks quickly under the broiler and my kids love eating it off of the skewers.  Try substituting chicken, beef or tofu for the salmon.

Orange-glazed Salmon Kebobs

  • wooden skewers, soaked in water for 30 minutes
  • 1 to 1 1/2 pounds salmon fillet

Marinade:

  • 1/4 cup orange juice concentrate, thawed
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 Tbsp. honey
  • 2 Tbsp. balsamic vinegar
  • 2 Tbsp. tamari or soy sauce
  • 2 tsp. toasted sesame oil

Cut salmon into 1 x 1 inch cubes.  Place in a shallow dish.

Combine all ingredients for marinade in a small saucepan.  Heat on low until honey is dissolved.  Pour over salmon pieces.  refrigerate for an hour, turning occasionally.

Preheat broiler.  Put four cubes on a skewer.  Broil 3 to 4 minutes, turn skewers and pour some of the marinade on the fish.  Broil another 3 to 4 minutes, or until done.

For Weight Watchers, weigh your skewer to figure out your points.  5 oz of salmon is 6 pts+ and 6 oz is 8 pts+.  The entire marinade recipe is 10 WWpts+, so I add 1 pt+.

    This is super delicious. It will definitely be on my menu again. The Greek yogurt sauce made a perfect compliment to the sweetness of the salmon.
