Mediterranean Style Salmon Kebabs

Time to make: 90 mins Serves: 6

These salmon kebabs are delicious and always a crowd pleaser. The Mediterranean-style marinade, with its beautiful garlic and fresh zesty notes, has a real summery feeling. Pair this with a flavoursome couscous, your favourite salad and a generous helping of Tzatziki.

1.5kg Salmon fillets, cut into cubes approximately 4cm in size
3 bell peppers cut into cubes approximately 4cm in size
2 red onions, cut into squares
For the marinade
100 ml extra virgin olive oil
3 garlic cloves, crushed
1 lemon, zested and juiced
2 tsp chopped fresh thyme leaves
2 tsp dry oregano
1 tsp ground cumin
1 tsp mild chili powder
1/2 tsp ground coriander
For the garnish
Bird’s eye chili
Fresh coriander leaf

First off start with the marinade by mixing the extra virgin olive oil, garlic, lemon juice and zest, oregano, thyme, cumin, mild chilli powder and ground coriander.
Place the salmon pieces, bell peppers and red onions in a large mixing bowl, season with salt and pepper, and briefly mix together. Pour the marinade over the salmon and vegetables and mix to make sure the salmon is well coated with the marinade. Cover with cling film and place in the fridge for an hour to make sure you pack in as much flavour as you can to the fish.
Take a skewer and, starting with the salmon, thread on salmon, pepper and onion; repeating until the skewer is full with a space of about 4cm at each end. If you are using wooden skewers it is always advisable to soak them in water for 20-30 minutes before using.
By now you will have already fired up the barbecue… gas or charcoal, its up to you. Place salmon skewers on and drop the lid to maximize the smokey flavours. Cook salmon for 6 to 8 minute, or until the fish is opaque throughout. Make sure you turn once midway through cooking.
When cooked serve immediately, but make sure you get in quick as these sumptuous skewers will go quick, so grab one fast or miss out.
