Why you’ll love this BBQ salmon recipe:

  • Quick: Prep these in only 15-minutes and have dinner on the table in only 30
  • Versatile: Use up the veggies you have in your fridge, or what is in-season, this is also great for picky-eaters who only like certain veggies
  • Fresh: I love this recipe for a quick BBQ meal after a busy day or on a long weekend, they are fresh, and perfect for a hot summer day

Ingredient Notes:

Salmon: Salmon is very low in saturated fat and is a healthy source of protein. It’s also a great source of vitamin B12, potassium, and nutrients like iron and vitamin D.

Marinade: This marinade is what makes the BBQ salmon kebabs so flavorful. The marinade uses chili lime seasoning that I made with the help of Diamond Crystal Fine Kosher Salt, fresh lemon juice, and quality dried oregano (because it is Greek-inspired after all).

How to make BBQ salmon:

  1. Make the tomato salad and let sit while you make the salmon skewers.
  2. Make the greek marinade and set aside.
  3. Make the skewers by alternating a variety of vegetables (onion, peppers and zucchini) with 2-3 salmon pieces per skewer and 1 piece of feta per skewer. Make sure to leave some room at the base of the skewer so you can grab onto them to place on the grill. This should make about 5-6 skewers.
  4. Spray grill with cooking spray or oil grill with avocado oil. Heat it to 350F. Once the grill is heated, add the skewers and grill for about 3-5 minutes per side, a total of about 12-20 minutes until the salmon is cooked through, basting with the sauce a few times.
  5. Serve skewers with a simple tomato salad and pitas if you desire.

Expert Tips & FAQ:

How long does salmon take to cook in the BBQ? About 3-5 minutes per side. Check for your desired doneness.

Should I barbecue salmon in foil? This can be an easy way to BBQ salmon when you are cooking a fillet, but if you are cooking it on kebabs, it’s not necessary.

Do you grill salmon on high or low? I like to cook my salmon on a grill that is around 350 degrees.

What temperature is salmon done on BBQ? Cook your salmon to an internal temperature of 145°F if you are using a thermometer.

Notes

  • If you’re using wooden skewers, we recommend you soak them for 5-10 minutes before using to avoid them burning while grilling.
  • If you don’t have chili-lime seasoning you can replace with zest of half a lime and 1 tsp chili powder.
