Salmon Skewers

Serves 4 1/2 cup honey 2 tablespoons plus 2 teaspoons soy sauce 1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon rice wine vinegar 1/2 teaspoon grated ginger 12 ounces skinless salmon fillet, cut into cubes 2 teaspoons water Scallions and limes for garnish, optional 10-12 wooden skewers Soak skewers in warm water for 30 minutes. Heat broiler to high. Mix together the honey, soy sauce and vinegar. Put half into a saute pan and set aside. Add ginger to the remaining mixture in the bowl. Add the salmon to the bowl with ginger mixture and mix to coat. Thread the salmon onto the skewers, then put them on a foil-lined baking sheet. Spoon on sauce from the bowl. Broil the salmon for about 2-3 minutes on each side, or until cooked. Add the water to the sauce in the pan. Simmer for 30 seconds, then serve with the salmon. If you like, serve skewers stuck into a lime half, garnished with curls of scallions. (To make them curl, cut them into thin slices and put in icy cold water.) --Adapted from Cook It Together by Annabel Karmel Per serving: 302 calories, 20 grams protein, 10 grams fat, 2 grams saturated fat, 36 grams carbohydrate, 0 grams fiber, 61 milligrams cholesterol, 922 milligrams sodium.
