Salmon kebabs are flavored with fresh herbs and lemon and easy to prepare for any night of the week.

Salmon is on our dinner menu near weekly, which means I need to find new ways to prepare it to keep myself from going insane from a repetitive menu.

Since the warmer weather means we grill outside as often as we can, it was only a matter of time before I grabbed the bamboo skewers and speared up some fish one night.

Salmon kebabs are incredibly easy and can be spiced in any number of ways, but I kept them simple with lemon and fresh rosemary.

Fish doesn’t take long on the grill, so don’t walk away after putting these down on the grates. If you are grilling anything else to accompany them, be sure to have those already well on their broiled journey before cooking the salmon.

By the way, don’t worry about that white stuff that might appear on your salmon when you cook it. It’s called albumin, and is a form of protein that comes to the surface when there is moisture loss.

It’s completely harmless, but you can always scrape it off if you don’t like it. I left it on in these photos for 1) honesty and 2) my laziness.

I made these salmon kabobs for this month’s installment of Progressive Eats. Our host is Anshie Dhar of Spice Roots and she chose a kebab fest!

If you’re unfamiliar with the concept, a progressive dinner involves going from house to house, enjoying a different course at each location. With Progressive Eats, a theme is chosen each month, members share recipes suitable for a delicious meal or party, and you can hop from blog to blog to check them out.

We have a core group of 12 bloggers, but we will always need substitutes and if there is enough interest would consider additional groups. To see our upcoming themes and how you can participate, please check out the schedule at Creative Culinary or contact Barb for more information.

  1. What a great idea to turn salmon into kebabs, Megan. I was showing my husband the List of Goodness last night, and he latched right onto your salmon kebabs. I can see these will have to happen in the near future!

  2. I don’t know why I’ve never thought to turn salmon into kebabs!? My youngest and I are huge salmon lovers, so I’ll have to make these on our next salmon night – so delicious.

  3. This is brilliant Megan! I love the inclusion of lemons between the salmon cubes adding so much more flavor. You have just changed the way we look at cooking fish on the grill – we are all going to be using skewers from now on! 🙂
