I’m floored and humbled when I think about our Baked salmon recipe being one of 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.

    amazing, easy & delicious! On my do it again list.
    I’m ‘lazy’ on shish-ke-bab/skewered meals.. I skip the threading on skewers & cook on BBQ with grill pan – its ‘shish-ke-pan’ — tastes the same, cooks the same but MUCH easier -more a bbq stir-fry.

    I have a question. Could you just use this marinade to grill salmon fillets?

      Hi Evelyn! Yes, you can grill the salmon fillets instead of cutting them into squares for skewers. You can reference my grilled salmon with garlic lime butter for instructions.
