Step To Make This Recipe

Step 1

Soak your bamboo skewers in warm water for 2 hours so they don’t burn and break on the grill. If using metal skewers then skip this step.

Start by patting dry and cubing your salmon. Place in a bowl with salt, pepper and a drizzle of olive oil. Set aside in the fridge.

Step 2

In a blender, make your vinaigrette. Blend kale, spinach, basil, shallot, olive oil, garlic, sherry vinegar and salt and pepper until mixed and emulsified throughout. It should be a vinaigrette/dressing like consistency.

Step 3

Pour 2 tablespoons of the dressing over your salmon mixture, mix and thinly slice your lemon in thin rounds. You will save the rest of your dressing for serving and dipping.

Step 4

Begin to heat your grill, alternatively you can cook this on a pan stovetop as well. Place your cubed salmon on skewers with a thin lemon slice in between each piece of salmon. (depending on your skewers size, I put 3-4 pieces of salmon on each skewer).

Step 5

Place your skewers on the grill and flip occasionally until fully cooked, around 8-10 minutes or your desired doneness for your salmon. Remove from the grill, serve with your sauce and lemon wedges.

FAQ’s

Do I have to soak my bamboo skewers?

Yes, otherwise it will not only burn on the grill/stovetop, but it will completely dissolve and you won’t have any skewers! Alternatively, you can use metal reusable skewers.

Do I need to include lemon slices on the skewers?

Nope! Additionally, feel free to sub with your favorites, it can be sliced lime, tomatoes, zucchini, mushrooms anything you would like on your skewers, you can adapt!

If I don’t have a grill or BBQ, how can I cook this on the stovetop?

You can either use a stovetop grilled grate, or just use the flattest surface pan you have (so it can cook the skewers evenly). Alternatively, you can also just sear/char the cubes of salmon on the stovetop if you don’t want to make these into proper skewers.
