Words I would use to describe this recipe? Simple. Easy. Fresh. Healthy. Fast. Delicious.
Word Marc used to describe this meal? Extraordinary. And one of the best meals he’s had in a long time.
I never would have guessed that he would ever think this way about vegetables and fish, but I guess that just tells you something about these salmon skewers. Like I mentioned, making them was so quick and easy to prepare. Just slice up some vegetables, which really can be any of your favorites, cube a couple of salmon filets, marinate and grill. These are perfect for a fast weeknight meal but would also be great to prepare ahead of time for some summer entertaining. I don’t like to be dramatic or bossy but if there’s one grilling recipe you try this summer (though there should be more than one!) this should be it.
Mediterranean Salmon Skewers
2 salmon filets, skin removed and cut into 1″ pieces
2 tsp dried oregano
4 tbsp olive oil
1/2 tsp salt
1/8 tsp pepper
1 lemon, zested and juiced
1 zucchini, cut into 1″ pieces
1 red pepper, de-seeded and cut into chunks
1 yellow pepper, de-seeded and cut into chunks
In bowl large enough to fit salmon, combine the oregano, olive oil, salt, pepper, lemon zest, and lemon juice. Stir thoroughly. Toss salmon and vegetables in marinade and let marinate for 30 minutes in refrigerator.
After 30 minutes, place salmon and vegetables onto 2-4 skewers, depending on the size of your skewers. If using wooden skewers, make sure to soak them prior to use.
Heat grill to medium-high heat. Place skewers on grill and let cook for 5-6 minutes. Brush with more marinade if you have some. Turn over and cook another 4-5 minutes. Enjoy!
