Prep: 10 mins. |
Grill: 10 mins.
You will need 8 (10”) skewers. Pre-soak wooden skewers for 30 minutes in water beforehand, or use metal skewers.
2 teaspoons fresh dill, minced (or ½ teaspoon dry)
2 teaspoons olive oil
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 teaspoon freshly grated lemon zest
1 teaspoon lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
1 lb. salmon fillet, skinned and cut into 1”x2” pieces
--Prepared pita bread, cut into triangles (for serving)
Preheat indoor/outdoor grill to medium-high heat. Oil a folded paper towel, hold it with tongs, and rub it over the rack or grill pan.
Combine dill, oil, garlic, lemon zest, lemon juice, kosher salt and freshly ground pepper in a medium bowl. Add salmon; toss to coat. Cover and marinate for at least 15 minutes, but no longer than 30 minutes, turning once.
Divide salmon pieces among 8 skewers (discard the marinade). Grill the skewers, carefully turning once after 5 minutes (if using metal skewers, use oven mitts because they’ll be ‘hot’), continue cooking salmon until cooked through, 8 to 10 minutes total (do not disturb them otherwise). Serve immediately with pita triangles - Enjoy!
Tip: You can also make vegetable kabobs at the same time using red onion, red bell pepper, and tomato chunks drizzled with olive oil, kosher salt and ground pepper on alternate skewers, just as I did (only put them on 10 mins. earlier, as they take a bit longer to cook.)
