Healthy Grilled Salmon Kebabs Recipe Is Loaded With Fresh Flavors

What’s for dinner tonight? Grilled salmon kebabs! This easy salmon recipe is loaded with fresh flavors. The health benefits of salmon make this a no-brainer when deciding what to make for dinner or lunch.

Start by cutting salmon into squares and threading it onto a skewer, alternating with fresh sliced lemon. The salmon kebabs marinate in a mixture of garlic, lemon juice, parsley, Dijon mustard, Worcestershire sauce, black sesame seeds, white sesame seeds, crushed red pepper flakes, champagne vinegar and ground cumin. The salmon kebabs are grilled until cooked through and garnished with dill (if you want!). 

You could omit the sesame seeds in this salmon kebab recipe if they're not your thing. Substitute your favorite fresh herb for the dill. Serve this kebab recipe with your favorite grain or with a salad
