In This Recipe
In a bowl, combine the soy sauce, honey, lime juice, mustard, ginger and garlic. Stir to combine. Set two tablespoons of the marinade aside. Add the cubes of the sockeye salmon to the marinade and toss to coat. Marinade 30 minutes, or refrigerate and marinate up to overnight.
Place the sockeye salmon cubes on skewers, alternating with the pineapple and onion.
Prepare a hot grill. Clean and oil the grill grates. Lightly brush the skewers with oil. Cook the skewers on the grill for 2-3 minutes per side. Remove the skewers from the grill and rest on a rack to cool. And brush with the reserved marinade.
Separately, season the avocado, quinoa cherry tomatoes and edamame with the lemon juice, olive oil, salt and pepper.
Arrange the seasoned vegetables in a bowl, adding the carrots, radish, scallion sesame seeds and hot sauce. Place two skewers over each bowl and drizzle each with any remaining reserved marinade.
