Spiced Salmon Kebabs

Spiced Salmon Kebabs


2 tbs. Chopped fresh oregano

2 tsp. Sesame seeds

1 tsp. Ground cumin

1 tsp. Kosher salt

¼ tsp. Crushed red pepper flakes

1 ½ lbs. Skinless salmon fillet (preferably wild), cut into 1 inch pieces

2 Lemons, very thinly sliced into rounds

2 tbs. Olive oil

•        16 bamboo skewers soaked in water 1 hour


Prepare grill for medium heat. Mix oregano, sesame seeds, cumin, salt and red pepper flakes in a small bowl to combine; set spice mixture aside.

Beginning and ending with salmon, thread salmon and lemon slices onto 8 pairs of parallel skewers to make 8 kebabs total. Brush with oil and season with reserved spice mixture.

Grill, turning occasionally, until fish is opaque throughout, 5-8 minutes.

•        Little trick: Thread salmon pieces onto two skewers so they don’t flip and spin every time you turn them on the grill.
