Ingredients

  • 8 wooden skewers
  • 2 lbs sockeye salmon or another fresh salmon of your choice
  • 3-4 lemons
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 recipe Basil Vinaigrette

Instructions

  • Soak the wooden skewers in water for at least and hour.
  • Heat your grill to medium high heat.
  • Cut the salmon into 1 inch cubes and slice 3 of the lemons into very thin slices either with a sharp knife or with a mandolin.
  • Alternate threading the salmon and the lemon slices on the wooden skewers, about 5-6 pieces of salmon per skewer. Drizzle the skewers with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Squeeze 1/2 of the remaining lemon juice on top.
  • Using a pair of tongs, carefully transfer the salmon skewers to the preheated grill and grill for about 3 minutes on each side until the salmon is almost fully cooked through. Remove the salmon skewers from the grill and let rest for about 5 minutes to let the salmon just continue to cook.
  • Serve the salmon skewers with the Basil Vinaigrette and extra lemons if desired.
