      About the Recipe


      These Grilled Salmon Kabobs are a perfect meal for all salmon lovers! 😉 Fresh vegetables and aromatic oils help to create the best dish in no time!

      Skewers with meat and vegetables on sticks.

      What is the best season to make this recipe?

      Grilled Salmon Kabobs are perfect for any season, but especially during the warmer months when grilling is in season.

      If you are hosting a summer barbecue, planning a spring picnic, or simply enjoying the taste of the Mediterranean year-round, these kabobs are a wonderful choice.

      What are the health benefits of this dish?

      These Mediterranean Salmon Kabobs offer a lot of health benefits, thanks to their nutritious ingredients.

      For example, salmon is rich in omega-3 fatty acids, which support heart health and brain function.

      The colorful peppers and onions provide essential vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants, contributing to overall well-being.

      With minimal oil and wholesome ingredients, this dish is a wholesome addition to any diet.

      Where can I buy the required ingredients?

      I recommend visiting your local market or grocery store to find fresh salmon fillets, vibrant green and red peppers, and a crisp red onion.

      Make sure that your olive oil, sesame oil, and salmon are of premium quality to enhance the flavor of the dish.

      Can I substitute any of the ingredients?

      The listed ingredients create a harmonious flavor, but feel free to customize your Salmon Kabobs to suit your taste.

      You may substitute green peppers for yellow or orange for a burst of color, or swap out the sesame oil for a different aromatic oil like avocado or garlic-infused olive oil.

      It’s also possible to use different marinades, herbs, and spices, whatever you feel like.

      Can I make this dish part of a menu?


      These Kabobs pair beautifully with a variety of Mediterranean-inspired dishes, creating a vibrant and satisfying menu

      For an appetizer, you can serve this delicious Cucumber Red Onion Salad or Ahi Tuna Salad.

      You can serve them with Simple Boiled Red Potatoes as the main dish.

      For dessert, go with my favorite Raspberry Pavlova or Chocolate Raspberry Tart.

      Which drinks pair well with this dish?

      Grilled Salmon Kabobs are wonderfully complemented by a range of beverages.

      You can choose crisp Sauvignon Blanc or light Pinot Grigio to enhance the delicate flavors of the salmon and vegetables.

      For a non-alcoholic option, I recommend some sparkling water infused with lemon or lemonade.

      How long can I store the leftovers?

      While Grilled Salmon Kabobs are best enjoyed fresh off the grill, leftovers can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to two days.

      When reheating, gently warm the kabobs in a skillet or microwave to preserve their texture and flavor.

      Enjoy them as a quick and satisfying meal or incorporate them into salads, wraps, or grain bowls.

      Recipe tips & tricks:

      • Cut the salmon and vegetables into uniform pieces for even cooking and attractive presentation.
      • Marinate the salmon in a mixture of olive oil, sesame oil, and salmon sauce for at least 15-20 minutes to infuse it with flavor and moisture.
      • Alternate the salmon cubes with the peppers and onions on skewers for a visually appealing arrangement.

      Enjoy these mouthwatering and juicy Mediterranean Salmon Kabobs!
