Teriyaki Salmon and Carrot Skewers

If you have any trouble at all at dinner time, you need to try the food-on-sticks thing. Kids, love it. Harry devoured these like a true pro, he barely paused to take a breath. Harry’s food is usually adapted from whatever Henry and I are having for dinner. This was no different. We were having teriyaki salmon with salad, so I just thought this might be more fun and easier to eat for Harry. Winner.

Tip: store bought teriyaki is very high in salt, so it’s best to stick to the small amount of sauce listed in the recipe – best for toddlers 12 months and up.

Nutrition Note:  Fresh salmon is one of the best sources of omega-3 fatty acids, essential for your child’s healthy growth and development.

  • 1 x 250g piece of salmon, skinless/boneless
  • 1 medium carrot
  • 1 tsp teriyaki sauce (salt reduced if possible)
  • 1 tsp extra virgin olive oil


Step 1

Be very thorough when checking the fish for bones. Cut the salmon and carrot into equal sized cubes. Thread onto a paddle pop stick or skewer (depending on child's age - skewers are sharp) -

Step 2

Pour the teriyaki sauce onto a small plate. Roll the skewers in the sauce until covered. -

Step 3

Heat the oil in a small frypan over medium/high. Place the skewers in the pan and fry for around 1 minute each side or until cooked through. -

    I love to make my own teriyaki sauce as its so easy and I can be sure what went in it. I use 1/4 cup tamari, 2tsp honey, fresh garlic and ginger; bring to bubbles then turn down to simmer until reduced and thickened. I normally add fresh shallots as bub loves it.

    I have to admit I was a bit skeptical about whether my 12 month old would eat this. I wanted to give him something different though, so I went ahead and made it for hi tonight.
    I shouldn’t have worried. He ate this with gusto and looked very happy with himself! Super recipe, thanks OH team!
