Ready Time

30 mins


6 servings


  • 1 1/2 pounds salmon fillets, cut into 1 1/2-inch pieces
  • 1 large red onion, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 1 large yellow bell pepper, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 1 large zucchini, cut into 1-inch slices
  • 1 large yellow squash, cut into 1-inch slices
  • 1 large red bell pepper, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 teaspoon chopped fresh dill
  • Salt and pepper to taste


Preheat grill to medium-high heat.

Thread salmon, red onion, yellow bell pepper, zucchini, yellow squash, and red bell pepper onto metal skewers, leaving a small space between each piece.

In a small bowl, whisk together olive oil, lemon juice, garlic, Dijon mustard, salt, pepper, and chopped fresh dill.

Brush the mixture evenly onto both sides of the salmon and vegetables.

Place the kabobs on the grill and cook for 10-12 minutes, turning occasionally, or until the salmon is cooked through and the vegetables are tender.

Serve hot and garnish with additional fresh dill, if desired.


Be sure to soak your skewers in water for at least 30 minutes before grilling to prevent them from catching fire. For a more intense grill flavor, you can grill the kabobs for the last 2-3 minutes with the lid closed.

If you have trouble getting the salmon to stick to the skewers, try using a small piece of onion or bell pepper as a “glue” to hold it in place.

Don’t overcrowd the skewers, as this can cause the vegetables to steam instead of grill. For a variation, try substituting the lemon juice with lime juice or orange juice for a different flavor.
