Honey Garlic Salmon Skewers

This is a sweet honey and garlic Salmon served with a simple spinach salad. As soon as I eat this I instantly feel strong and healthy. When I was a kid and you didn't want to eat your spinach your parents always said "if you eat this you will be strong like Popeye!" so you did. Now just to be clear, they never let you eat it raw or else they might have had more success.

Eat this and you instantly feel healthy and strong!

You will need:

  • 1 half of salmon - skin removed
  • 2-3 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic crushed
  • 1 tbsp grated ginger
  • salt/pepper
  • 2 tbsp honey
  • 1 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tsp rice vinegar
  • 1 tsp chinese five spice powder
  • 1/2 tsp ceyanne pepper
  • 1/2 tsp chili garlic sauce
  • sesame seeds
  • bowl of baby spinach
  • 1/4 cup sliced onions
  • crumbled blue cheese
  • 1/4 cup dried cranberries
  • 1/2 lime juiced
  • 2 tbsp raspberry vinegar
  • 4 tbsp olive oil
  • salt/pepper
  • 1 tsp soy sauce

Step 1: remove skin and brown layer of salmon. Slice into strips or cubes. I prefer wild salmon and you can buy it fresh or frozen. Make sure fish has no bones in it.

Step 2: soak bamboo skewers in water for at least 15 minutes to avoid burning on the grill.

Step 3: in a small bowl mix olive oil, crushed garlic and ginger. Rub oil mixture on fish and sprinkle with salt and pepper and a bit of sesame seeds . Gently thread fish on skewers. I have made 4 skewers with a half a side of salmon which is perfect for two people.

Step 4: make marinade. In another small bowl add honey, soy, worcestershire sauce, rice vinegar, five spice, ceyanne powder and chili garlic sauce.

Step 5: assemble all ingredients for salad but, do not add dressing until the last minute before serving.

Step 6: grill fish on medium-high for a few minutes, they will cook quickly. Brush the honey garlic sauce while grilling.
