Japanese Sticky Salmon Skewers w/ Radish Salad

These make for the perfect light lunch; if you're having friends over you can double the amount and the great thing is because they are pre-marinated all you have to do is pop them on the skewers and 10 minutes later they're done. The combination of the delicious marinade, crisp skinned salmon, caramelised pineapple and meaty mushrooms is just so satisfying. 

We serve them with the salad and a big bowl of brown rice.

Squeeze the lime over the radishes, pour in the tamari, oil and sesame seeds. Serve with the skewers.
