  • ¾ lb salmon 340g, or other fish good for grilling, see above
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon mirin rice wine
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • ½ onion medium


  • Skin the salmon and remove any stray bones. Cut it into chunks, roughly 1in/2.5cm square and put in a freezer bag or box.
  • Mix together the soy sauce, mirin and honey so they are well blended together then pour in with the fish. Leave to marinade for 10-20 minutes, turning once or twice to ensure all the fish takes on the marinade.
  • Cut the onion in to chunks, separating two to three layers of onion at a time - approx in half top to bottom of the onion and in 2-4 across, depending on thickness.
  • Thread pieces of onion and salmon on to two skewers, or more depending on size, roughly one piece of onion followed by one to two pieces of salmon. Put a piece of onion on both ends to hold everything on.
  • Grill for around 10 minutes, depending on your grill/barbecue and size of the fish chunks, turning every couple of minutes until the fish is cooked through. If you can't or prefer not to grill/bbq, you can also put under broiler/grill. Take care not to break up the fish as you turn the skewers.
