Salmon Lemon Kebab
- 1.5 lbs salmon fillets, cut into 1-inch squares (#8669)
- 2 large lemons thinly sliced
- 16 (10-inch) bamboo skewers
Ingredients for Marinade:
- 2 tbsp parsley, freshly chopped, or dry (#1426)
- 1 tbsp minced garlic (#1289)
- 1/2 tbsp Dijon mustard
- 1/2 tsp salt (#1146)
- 1/8 tsp ground black pepper (#1029)
- 2 tbsp light olive oil (not extra virgin, pick something with a higher smoke point)
- 2 tbsp of fresh lemon juice from 1/2 large lemon or 1 small lemon
How to Make Grilled Salmon Skewers:
Prep: Soak bamboo skewers at least 1 hour to keep them from catching fire.
- Preheat Grill to medium heat (about 375˚F).
- In a medium bowl, stir together all of the marinade ingredients: 2 tbsp chopped parsley, minced garlic, 1/2 tbsp dijon, 1/2 tsp salt, 1/8 tsp pepper, 2 tbsp olive oil, 2 tbsp lemon juice.
- Skewer the salmon and lemon slices folded in half intermittently onto two skewers at a time (The double skewer aids in turning the salmon kebobs on the grill). Brush both sides of skewers with marinade.
- Oil the grates then carefully place salmon skewers onto the hot BBQ. Grill kebobs for 3-4 minutes per side or until salmon is cooked through and opaque.
