2 lbs. Atlantic salmon
½ c. sweet chili sauce
¼ c. sriracha
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 tbsp. toasted sesame seed oil
½ tsp. salt

1 clove garlic, minced

  1. 1With a sharp knife at a 45-degree angle, cut into the edge of the salmon filet width-wise and cut the filet off the skin. Continue until you are able to gently peel off the rest of the skin. Then cut salmon into one-inch cubes.
  2. In a medium sized mixing bowl, add sweet chili sauce,
    ¼ c. sriracha, two cloves of minced garlic, toasted sesame seed oil and salt. Whisk until thoroughly combined. Then place your salmon cubes into the bowl, toss generously in the marinade. Cover and place in refrigerator to marinate for 30 minutes.

  4. Turn grill on medium high heat. Place five of the salmon cubes onto each skewer. Grill for two minutes on each side of your cubes, using tongs to gently turn skewers without having them tear.
  5. Then take skewers off the grill, drizzle with the sriracha cilantro mayo, and enjoy!
