Umami Salmon Kabobs with Pineapple Marinade

Pineapple Soy Marinated Salmon Kabobs | Marinated salmon is easy to prepare, quick to cook, and full of healthy vitamins, minerals, and omega-3 fatty acids. This 9-ingredient fish skewer recipe can be prepared on a grill or on the stove-top in a grilling pan. Bring summer flavor to a homemade salmon marinade with sweet pineapple juice balanced with the umami touch of Kikkoman® Soy Sauce. An ideal grilling season recipe, but equally delicious all year round. Pair with grilled vegetables.


Yield: Serves 4
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Inactive Time: 30 minutes
Cook Time: 13 minutes
Total Time: 53 minutes

⅔ cup pineapple juice
⅓ cup Kikkoman® Less Sodium Soy Sauce
¼ cup brown sugar
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
1 tablespoon minced garlic
1 poundskin-off salmon fillet
2 tablespoons olive oil for cooking

For Serving
1 teaspoon toasted sesame seeds
2 tablespoons thinly sliced green onion


  1. Whisk together pineapple juice, soy sauce, brown sugar, Dijon mustard and garlic in a bowl until brown sugar is mostly dissolved. Slice salmon into 1-inch cubes. Pour half of the marinade over salmon cubes in a shallow dish or large zip top bag and gently stir to coat. Marinate for 30 minutes.
  2. While salmon marinates, place 6 wooden skewers in a shallow dish of water. This will help prevent burning while cooking. Whisk together remaining marinade in a saucepan. Heat over medium-low heat and bring to a simmer. Simmer for 4-5 minutes to reduce slightly.
  3. Slide marinated salmon on wooden skewers. Discard marinade. Heat grill or grill pan over medium-high heat and grease with cooking oil. Once very hot, grill kabobs for 7-8 minutes, turning occasionally for even cooking.
  4. Brush salmon kabobs with remaining sauce right before serving and top with sesame seeds and green onion.
