Maple-Dijon Salmon Skewers | Sitka Salmon Shares

Prep time: 10 min
Cook time: 15 min
Total time: 25 min
Serves: 4


  • 1 pound salmon fillet, skin removed and cut into 1½-inch pieces
  • 1 tablespoon pure maple syrup
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • 1½ teaspoons Dijon mustard
  • 1½ teaspoons 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.

Alternatively, grill over medium heat, 3-4 minutes per side. Brush salmon with the maple-Dijon glaze often.

Transfer to a platter and serve!
