Recipe time – grilled salmon skewers
To avoid putting on further pounds, the next recipe I’m sharing with you is as far from cakes as it can be: today we are grilling salmon! To tell the truth I chose to paint this recipe because I absolutely can’t stand fish (or any other creature coming from water) so this way I could avoid the temptation that food illustration poses. Of course, I have no problem with the same recipe with salmon exchanged for chicken, for example. So, here is a grilled favourite for salmon-lovers.
- 71.5 lbs salmon fillets, cut into 1-inch squares
- 2 large lemons thinly sliced
- 16 skewers
For the marinade:
- 2 Tbsp parsley, freshly chopped
- 2 large or 3 small garlic cloves, pressed
- 1/2 Tbsp Dijon mustard (we used grey poupon)
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/8 tsp ground black pepper
- 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
In a medium bowl, stir together all of the marinade ingredients: 2 Tbsp chopped parsley, 2 pressed garlic cloves, 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 and 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 until salmon is cooked through and opaque.
