Fresh wild sockeye salmon is one of my proteins of choice. I love how moist, succulent and versatile it is. Salmon can take on so many incredible flavours and it is perfect for a casual meal or a fine dining experience.
I came across this incredible looking recipe at myinvisiblecrown.com. These kababs would be a beautiful addition to a dinner party, but for a faster and more casual version, you can grill the salmon filet whole (you might have to adjust the cook time according to the thickness of the fish).
*As usual, I made some small adjustments in bold to make the dish even healthier.
Grilled Salmon Kebabs
Original recipe by Christy
Yeilds 5-6 servings
- 1 1/2 lbs salmon fillet (wild caught) cut into 1 inch cubes (sockeye preferred)
- 3 tablespoons fresh dill, finely chopped
- 1 tablespoon fresh parsley, finely chopped
- 1 tablespoon black sesame seeds
- 1 tablespoons white sesame seeds
- 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
- 1 teaspoon worcestershire sauce (if you suffer from chronic illness, omit this entirely because of the added vinegar and sugar)
- juice from half a lemon
- 1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes (or more to taste)
- 1/4 teaspoon cumin
- 1/4 teaspoon garlic, minced
- splash champagne vinegar (I would omit this entirely or use a splash more lemon juice instead)
- 2 lemons thinly sliced into rounds
- 12 skewers soaked in ice water for an hour
- Heat grill to medium. (You could probably cook on a grill pan on a stove-top).
- Combine dill, parsley, mustard, lemon juice, red pepper, garlic, and cumin in a small bowl and set aside.
- Take salmon cubes and thread salmon on two skewers followed by a lemon slice folded in half. Continue until the skewer is full, beginning and ending with salmon. You should have 5-6 skewers completed when you’re done.
- Brush with olive oil then heavily with spice mixture.
- Sprinkle with sesame seeds.
- Grill, turning from time to time until fish is opaque. About 4-7 minutes.
- Serve immediately with a big fresh salad or a large side of steamed veggies. And don’t forget to be generous with the healthy oils if you are following the nutritional ketogenic diet. 🙂
