Poppy Seed Salmon Kebabs / Skewers

Total Time
Prep 10 mins
Cook 10 mins

Based on a number of other recipes I've enjoyed and a great way to enjoy salmon on a BBQ / grill. Preparation time does not include marination time. Originally this recipe was going to use a tablespoon of sesame seeds and hence have a different title, but I'd run out so you can try that as well!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cut salmon into cubes around 2-3cm (one inch) in size. Leave the skin on if desired but cur around the bones.
  2. Combine all other ingredients (apart from skewers!) in a small bowl, add salmon pieces and gently mix.
  3. Leave in refrigerator around an hour to marinate, lightly turning occasionally.
  4. Carefully thread onto skewers and cook over BBQ or grill on low-medium temperature for 5-10 minutes turning occasionally until cooked.

Great salmon! I made as written minus the Tabasco sauce. The grilling time was perfect, I will be using this sauce/marinade often. Made for AUS/NZ Recipe Swap.

amazing.. I opted for cod, prawn and fresh salmon... well next time, I will skin the salmon, as it was very hard to fork the wooden skewer into salmon .... with perserverence, I did that.. but, in saying this, I also added fresh cod and fresh devined and shelled prawn... the cooking time .. trust me.. after 5 minutes turn... ( I baked these at 375) and 10 minutes cooking was perfect... tent the kebabs after cooking.. to allow for gentle cooking.. an awesome marinade... thanks for sharing

Excellent!!! I made this with salmon, white fish fillets and prawns. The marinade is awesome and the flavour totally infuses with the fish. We all said how lovely this was and it was such a last minute addition to my BBQ and a great recipe to stumble upon. I did not have poppy seeds, so made as you said was the original recipe and used sesame seeds. This will definitely become a regular this summer on our BBQ.
