I've always loved teriyaki salmon but typically used a store bought marinade. After trying both, I definitely prefer the homemade version! It tastes so good, very authentic. These skewers were perfect for my house party, everyone loved them!

These teriyaki salmon skewers are perfect on any grill. Even the kids loved them! The delicious, sweet, tangy teriyaki flavors were really infused in this dish after letting them marinate overnight. I've got to make it more often.

You do not need an outdoor grill to enjoy these. I mean, it will taste slightly a bit better with the grill flavor, but these worked just fine on my cast iron grill pan. Great for your next game day feast!
