Grilled Salmon Skewers with Garlic and Dijon

Easy grilled salmon skewers with garlic & dijon. Juicy with incredible flavor & takes less than 30 minutes ~ KEEPER! | natashaskitchen.com

I’m floored and humbled when I think about our Baked salmon recipe being one of my the most popular salmon recipes in the WORLD. Wowzers!! Thank YOU so much for sharing it and for all the amazing reviews! The marinade for these salmon skewers is the same recipe that we used on our Baked Salmon with garlic and dijon.

I was craving salmon the other day and wanting to fire up the grill so these grilled salmon skewers were born. These take less than 30 minutes to make and you end up with such juicy, flaky and flavorful salmon… you’ll want seconds!  We ate these up so fast. My husband even ate the lemon slices – they too were touched by the marinade and the crisp ring around them made them almost candy-like!

How to Make Grilled Salmon Skewers:

Prep: Soak bamboo skewers at least 1 hour to keep them from catching fire. Preheat Grill to medium heat (about 375˚F).
1. In a medium bowl, stir together all of the marinade ingredients: 2 Tbsp chopped parsley, 2 pressed garlic cloves, 1/2 Tbsp dijon, 1/2 tsp salt, 1/8 tsp pepper, 2 Tbsp olive oil, 2 Tbsp lemon juice.

2. Skewer the salmon and lemon slices folded in half intermittently onto two skewers at a time (The double skewer aids in turning the salmon kebobs on the grill). Brush both sides of skewers with marinade.

3. Oil the grates then carefully place salmon skewers onto the hot BBQ. Grill kebobs for 3-4 minutes per side or until salmon is cooked through and opaque.

    these were fantastic! I received so many complements – “This is the best salmon I ever had” …I trimmed the skin and did put the cut up chunks in the marinade for about 25 minutes before I put them on the skewers (we used metal) Just fabulous – thank you! Reply

    Hi Natasha! I’m about to make salmon skewers. Do you think is a good idea to marinade salmon over night?I want it to be tasty inside. Thanks! Reply

      Hi Anna, this does not require marinating overnight and I probably would not marinate overnight simply because of the lemon juice which can toughen seafood if marinated too long. Reply

    I actually tried this out tonight. Instead of using skewers my son actually got me a set of shish kabob baskets and they came out very well! Cheers for the recipe Natasha. Reply

      Hi Jeena, I haven’t tried it with that particular fish, but I have found this recipe to work with a variety of fish and even lobster and shrimp. I’m guessing it would work well. If you try it, let me know how you like it 🙂 Reply
