This recipe for Grilled Salmon Kabobs will quickly become your go-to fish dish! Not only is it healthy and easy, it is full of flavor from the simple marinade. It’s time to add salmon to your list of favorite barbecue foods.

1/3 cup soy sauce
1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
2 teaspoons dark sesame oil
1 tablespoon minced fresh herbs, such as parsley, basil, or rosemary
1 teaspoon grated lemon zest
2 pounds salmon fillets, preferably from middle of the fish, skin on
Special equipment: bamboo skewers, soaked in water 1 hour before using

In a bowl, combine all ingredients, except salmon.

Cut salmon into 1-1/2- to 2-inch cubes or large rectangles (if pieces are too small, the salmon will dry out during cooking). Thread fish onto two parallel skewers (this makes it easier to turn them during cooking). Place skewers in a shallow baking dish and pour marinade over fish. Refrigerate for 1 hour, turning once.

Preheat grill until hot. Brush salmon again with marinade. Grill fish directly over heat for 4 minutes. Turn and grill for another 4 to 6 minutes, or until opaque.
