Recipe: Greek Herb Salmon Skewers

Simple, flavorful and family friendly is the name of the game when it comes to cooking and creating recipes in my house. These simple salmon skewers fit the bill! They only require a little pre-prep- stirring together a quick marinade and letting them sit for a while to soak in the herby goodness- and then they're ready to go in minutes on the stove or grill!

They're the perfect patio dinner or addition to your next BBQ, this summer!

Marinade: 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil

1/4 cup lemon juice

2 tsp dried oregano

1 tsp dried parsley*

1 tsp dried basil*

1/2 tsp dried marjoram*

1/2 tsp thyme* (*or use 3 tsp Italian seasoning)

2 cloves garlic, minced

big pinch sea salt

  1. Whisk together all marinade ingredients.

To it, add:

1 lb salmon- cubed

  1. Gentle mix marinade with salmon. Let marinate for at least 30 minutes or up to 6 hours in the fridge.

  2. Remove from marinade and pierce onto wooden skewers (soaked in water if using on a grill)

  3. Grill or pan-sear for ~1-2 minutes per all four sides until just cooked through.

We served ours with rice and a simple cucumber salad (sliced cucumber, fresh dill, olive oil, apple cider vinegar and sea salt).
