Makes 2 Servings
1 tbsp hoisin sauce
1 tsp soy sauce
1 tsp sesame oil
1 tsp lime juice
2 6-oz salmon fillets, cut into 2-inch pieces
1 tbsp sesame seeds for garnish (optional)
How to make it 

If using wooden skewers, soak them in water for at least 30 minutes. Combine the hoisin sauce, soy sauce, and lime juice in a small bowl. Place the salmon in a shallow baking dish and pour 3/4 of the marinade over the salmon. Refrigerate and let marinate for 30 minutes.

Thread the salmon onto skewers and grill, about 3 minutes per side, brushing with the remaining marinade after flipping. Sprinkle with sesame seeds and serve immediately.
