A “Yakitori Style” New Zealand King Salmon bbq skewers. This recipe is smokey, fresh, full of flavor and excellent when shared with friends and family.

By far, our new favorite way to bbq! With a smooth smokey flavor and a melt in your mouth texture, this King Salmon was heavenly. Not to mention, the Binchotan coals are a must. With consistent hot temperature, distinct clean smokey flavor, and very little issues with excess smoke, these coals were perfect. Not to mention, the ponzu sauce is an essential pairing when cooking with fish with high fat content. Overall, this preparation was simply amazing and we highly recommend it!
