Serves: 4


  • 4 Salmon fillets, cut into 4cm cubes
  • 1 Large cucumber, cut into 1cm thick slices
  • 1 glass White wine
  • 3 tbsp Soy sauce
  • 2 tbsp Poppy seeds
  • 1 tbsp Caster sugar
  • 1 tbsp Olive oil
  • Wooden skewers, soaked in cold water for a couple of hours


  1. In a bowl whisk the white wine, soy sauce, poppy seeds, sugar and oil.
  2. Place the salmon and cucumber in the marinade and leave in the fridge for 1 hour.
  3. Thread alternating chunks of salmon and cucumber onto the wooden skewers.

* Chef’s Tip: whilst the skewers are on the grill, occasionally brush some of the marinade over the skewers for added flavour.
