Grilled Salmon Kabobs
I am trying to get back on track with healthier eating. Despite exercising more since I've been retired, I've put on a few pounds. My husband was heading to the grocery store today and I told him I felt I had nothing much to eat aside from salads with grilled chicken. Boring! I had a few things in mind that I might like to cook and he suggested salmon and I said, "Sure!"
He came home with salmon, asparagus, blueberries, apples, and nectarines. An entire rainbow of food. That was very thoughtful of him. I got to cooking right away. I made up some quinoa, I put the asparagus in the oven to roast with a scant amount of olive oil, salt, and pepper, and I made up salmon kabobs like I'd seen on the internet. I just thinly sliced a lemon, folded the lemon slices in half, and then slide them onto the skewers between the cubes of salmon.
I grilled the salmon on my small grill pan (which is actually a panini pan). I like my salmon rather well done so I just kept cooking it until it was really flakey and kind of dry. It made a delicious meal with quinoa and roasted asparagus. The only seasoning I used was kosher salt and pepper. When I looked up the original recipe source, a blog called Skinnytaste, I saw Gina recommended some additional spices. Next time, I'll try that for sure. To see the Skinnytaste recipe for Grilled Salmon Kabobs, you can find it HERE. I will get four meals out of the cooking I did today (I used two salmon filets and they weighed less than 1 pound total I think). It will be a nice to have this meal, and NOT just salads with grilled chicken.
