Grilled Salmon Skewers
These savory and colorful crowd-pleasing skewers are a healthy addition to your menu.
For the Skewers:
3/4 lb. salmon, cut into 1-inch squares #219551
1 large lemon, thinly sliced #192676
8 (10-inch) bamboo skewers #691022
For the marinade:
1 Tbsp. parsley, freshly chopped #193133
1 large garlic clove, pressed #192922
1/4 Tbsp. Dijon mustard #074206
1/4 tsp. Salt #052100
Pinch of black pepper #169540
1 Tbsp. light olive oil (not extra virgin; pick something with a higher smoke point) #053059
1 Tbsp. fresh lemon juice #192676
Soak bamboo skewers in water for 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.
Double skewer the salmon and lemon slices, folding them in half and spearing them onto two skewers one at a time. Brush both sides of skewered salmon with the marinade.
Oil the grates on the grill, then carefully place salmon skewers onto the hot grill. Grill skewers for 3-4 minutes per side or until salmon is cooked through and opaque.
