Maple-Dijon Salmon Skewers

Serves: 2 | Difficulty:

We're so proud that this super simple recipe was featured in the November 2015 issue of Food & Wine magazine, and Sitka Salmon Shares was named one of America's Best Food Artisans—what an honor!


1 pound salmon fillet, skin removed and cut into 1½-inch pieces
1 tablespoon pure maple syrup
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
½ tablespoon Dijon mustard
½ tablespoon whole-grain mustard
2 tablespoons grapeseed or vegetable oil
8 6-inch metal skewers, or wooden skewers soaked in water for 1 hour
Salt and pepper, to taste


In a small bowl, whisk the maple syrup with lemon juice, both mustards, and 1 tablespoon of grapeseed oil.

Thread the salmon onto skewers, and season all over with salt and pepper.

In a large cast-iron skillet, heat 1 tablespoon of the oil until shimmering. Add half of the skewers and cook over medium-high heat until browned on the bottom (approx. 1 to 2 minutes).

Flip the skewers—basting with the mustard glaze and turning occasionally—until glazed and nearly cooked through (about 5 minutes total). Repeat with the remaining oil and skewers.

Transfer to a platter and serve!
