Memorial Day Recipe: Grilled Salmon Vegetable Kebabs

Memorial Day is all about the grilling, but instead of a hamburger or hot dogs--we recommend this healthy alternative:

Grilled Salmon Vegetable Kebabs

Lighten up your barbeque fare without compromising taste with these delightful, summer kebabs.

  • 1 onion, cut into large chunks

  • 1 red or yellow pepper, seeded and cut into 1-inch chunks

  • 12 button mushrooms, stems removed

  • 1 zucchini, sliced into half-moons

  • 16 ounces fresh salmon, cut into 1-inch cubes

  • ¼ cup olive oil

  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh thyme

  • 2 cloves garlic, crushed

  • 8 ounces water

  • 4 12-inch skewers, soaked in water

  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste

Alternate the vegetables and salmon on each skewer. Combine olive oil, thyme, and crushed garlic in a large flat baking dish and add the skewers; marinate for 30 minutes or more. Season the kebabs with salt and pepper. Cook on the grill for 8-10 minutes until the kebabs are cooked.
