<h2> Directions: 

- Start by placing the salmon pieces into a large resealable bag. Make the marinade in a small mixing bowl by whisking together chili sauce, orange juice, garlic, tamari, sesame oil, and ginger. Pour the marinade over the salmon and seal the bag. Refrigerate for 1 hour. 

- Preheat the oven to 400°F. Thread marinated salmon pieces onto the skewers, placing 4-5 pieces on each (if you’re using wooden skewers, soak them in water for about 30 minutes prior to using). 

- Place the salmon skewers onto a parchment lined baking sheet and bake for 10 minutes. After 10 minutes, carefully turn/flip the salmon, then switch the oven over to broil and cook for another 2 minutes to lightly brown the tops. 

- Remove from the oven and sprinkle with chopped scallions. Serve with rice or quinoa and your choice of veggies. 

<h2> Notes: 

- You can also grill these salmon skewers! Just put them onto a preheated grill (or place a grill pan on top of your grill) and grill for about 4-5 minutes on each side. To ensure they stay on the skewer, consider using two for each set.
