Teriyaki Amberjack Skewers

We created a teriyaki-style marinade that is less sweet and more flavorful than commercial teriyaki sauces.

Oxmoor House JANUARY 2005

  • Yield: 3 servings (serving size: 2 kabobs)
  • Cook time: 14 Minutes
  • Prep time: 20 Minutes
  • Other: 1 Hour


  • 1/3 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup low-sodium soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup fresh orange juice
  • 1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup rice wine vinegar
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 tablespoon minced peeled fresh ginger
  • 1 pound amberjack fillets, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 1 small red bell pepper, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 1 small green bell pepper, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 1 1/2 cups (1-inch) cubed fresh Pineapple
  • Cooking spray


Combine first 7 ingredients in a small saucepan; cook over medium heat 2 to 3 minutes or until sugar dissolves. Pour half of soy sauce mixture (about 1/2 cup) into a small bowl; set aside to cool.

Bring remaining soy sauce mixture to a boil over medium heat; reduce heat, and simmer 9 to 11 minutes or until mixture is reduced by half and forms a thin syrup (about 1/4 cup). Remove from heat, pour into a small bowl, and refrigerate until ready to serve.

Pour reserved 1/2 cup soy sauce mixture into a zip-top plastic bag. Add fish and bell peppers; seal bag and marinate in refrigerator 1 hour, turning occasionally.

Prepare grill.

Remove fish and bell peppers from marinade; discard marinade. Thread fish, bell pepper, and pineapple alternately onto 6 (12-inch) skewers.

Place on grill rack coated with cooking spray; grill 3 to 4 minutes on each side or until fish is opaque. Remove from heat; brush with reserved soy sauce mixture.

Note: If you use wooden skewers, be sure to soak them in water for 30 minutes to prevent the wood from burning on the grill.
