Summer has arrived! Along with that comes the grilling season! June is National Seafood Month, and so I thought I would share a new recipe that was passed on to me. I tried it and fell in love with it.  Now it is mine and my husband’s go to appetizer when I arrive home from work on a Friday night. It’s great if you don’t really want a lot to eat but just a little snack to enjoy with your glass of wine. Then it is time to relax on the deck after a long week of working.

Using Fresh Herbs to make Salmon Kabobs - www.cobornsblog.comThis recipe is so unbelievably easy to make and not only can you use this as an appetizer but you can serve this for dinner as a main entrée.  What a way to impress your guests with these beautiful salmon kabobs.

I started a fresh herb garden this year on my deck and my patio has never smelled so good!  I have so many different aromas it’s worth growing them just for the smells. I grow fresh cilantro, oregano, sweet basil, chives and dill.  This recipe is perfect because I can use my fresh oregano or if I want to change it up I can use fresh dill.  Don’t worry though, even if you don’t have fresh herbs you can always use dried herbs in this recipe.  You would just use a little less than if you were using fresh.

Salmon Kabobs

Grilled Salmon Kabobs
 
Ingredients
  • 2 T. Fresh Oregano, chopped
  • 2 tsp. Sesame Seeds
  • 1 tsp. Ground Cumin
  • ¼ tsp. Crushed Red Pepper Flakes
  • 1.5 - 2 lbs. Norwegian Salmon Fillet, skin removed and cut into 1”-2" squares
  • 2 Lemons, very thinly sliced into rounds
  • Olive Oil Cooking Spray
  • 1 tsp. Kosher Salt
  • Bamboo Skewers soaked in water ½ hour
Instructions
  1. Spray grill grates with oil.
  2. Preheat the grill to medium heat.
  3. Mix oregano, sesame seeds, cumin and red pepper flakes in a small bowl; set spice mixture aside.
  4. Beginning and ending with salmon, thread salmon and folded lemon slices onto pairs of parallel skewers to make 6 kabobs.
  5. Spray the fish lightly with oil and season with kosher salt and reserved spice mixture.
  6. Grill the salmon, turning occasionally, until internal temperature of salmon reaches at least 145°F, about 8 to 10 minutes.
Notes
• If you are using dried oregano instead of fresh use a ½ teaspoon.
• If you like a little more spice in your food you can always add more red pepper flakes.
• Always soak wooden skewers at least a ½ hour before using so they don’t start on fire.
• When making kabobs I always use 2 skewers for each kabob. It makes it easier to turn the food on the grill.
• Make sure to spray your grates with oil before starting the grill.

 

These kabobs make a beautiful presentation and what a way to WOW all your guests at your next backyard grilling party.  Enjoy…. I did!
