This flavorful marinated salmon pairs beautifully with couscous flavored with scallions and cilantro. A sauté of zucchini and yellow peppers with a little basil would round out the meal.
A fruity, medium-bodied red without too much tannin will pair well with the flavors of the grilled salmon and the sesame in the marinade. Try Castel de Remei Gotim Bru, a Tempranillo blend from the Costers del Segre region of Spain, or Domaine de l’Oratoire St. Martin Côtes du Rhône.
If your 2-1/2 lb. of salmon doesn’t yield 48 cubes exactly, just use more or fewer cubes per skewer.Ginger and sesame oil work a subtle magic on salmon with just an hour of marinating. But don’t marinate it any longer, as ginger’s tenderizing effect will make the fish too soft.

I love this marinade. Quick and easy - I return to this recipe again and again. Like others have said, I don't bother with skewers. I marinate a whole salmon filet and veggies together. Then use a grill basket on the side to cook the veggies.
Easy asian marinade for salmon. I used salmon fillet instead of cubes and it came out fine. I served it with bok choy and jasmine rice.
Excellent, easy. I substituted Hoisin sauce for the sugar. Leftover salmon and veggies make a wonderful Saturday morning omelet. Highly recommended. Anneg
Salmon prepared in this marinade is delicious - I have only ever used it on whole salmon filets and never bothered make the brochettes (we typically grill some veggies in a grill basket on the side - quicker than threading everything on skewers). Last time I served it to guests, both couples wanted my Fine Cooking issue to copy out the marinade recipe right after we ate.
