This is a no frills recipe for salmon made with simple ingredients and incredible flavor. It’s perfect for a busy weeknight, as there is no marinating involved and it has little cleanup. I provide instructions for making these salmon kebabs on the grill or in the oven.
Cut the salmon into ½” (13mm) cubes. Heat grill to 450ºF (230ºC) or grill pan to medium-high heat. Brush the grates with vegetable oil.
Add the cubed salmon to a medium mixing bowl and toss with the oil. Season with the cayenne, onion powder, garlic powder, salt and pepper, tossing to combine and evenly coat the salmon.
Thread salmon pieces and folded lemon slices onto 2 soaked skewers, alternating the salmon and lemon.
Grill the salmon skewers, turning halfway through cooking until the fish is cooked through and has turned light pink color, about 8 to 10 minutes.
Serve the salmon on or off the skewers garnished with fresh chopped herbs with roasted vegetables or a kale salad.
Heat oven to 400ºF (200ºC). Arrange the salmon skewers on a baking sheet and bake until just cooked through, about 10 to 12 minutes. Garnish with herbs as directed below.
Rather than simply seasoning the salmon with a combination of cayenne, garlic powder, onion powder, salt and pepper as I do, try these seasoning combinations with this recipe:
