[teriyaki dove breast skewers


Prep Time: 10 mins

Cook Time: 10 mins

Total Time: 20 mins



  • 16 dove breasts

  • 2 cloves garlic, minced

  • 1 tbsp fresh ginger, minced

  • 1 tbsp rice vinegar

  • ¼ cup low-sodium soy sauce

  • ½ cup water

  • 3 tbsp light brown sugar

  • 2 tbsp corn starch

  • 1 tbsp honey

  • vegetable oil (for brushing)

  • salt, to taste

  • pepper, to taste


  1. Whisk garlic, ginger, rice vinegar, soy sauce, water, sugar, corn starch, and honey before adding to a saucepan and cook over low heat till it simmers. Once thickened, remove and set aside.

  2. Prepare grill and set to direct cooking and high heat. If you are using the oven, set it to broil mode.

  3. Brush dove breasts with oil and season with salt and pepper to taste. Brush grill with oil and grill breasts for 2 minutes. Baste and paint the meat with teriyaki sauce and flip them over. Repeat and cook till your desired doneness. If using the oven, paint the sauce over the meat and cook for 10 minutes, rotating and basting halfway through.

  4. When the dove breasts are cooked and slightly charred, it's time to enjoy! Serve with more teriyaki sauce for dipping!


  • You can also marinate the dove in the teriyaki sauce for 1 to 4 hours if you want it to be more flavorful.

  • Mix things up and add your favorite veggies by alternating them on the skewers with the dove meat.
