Yields

5 servings

Ingredients

  • For the salmon skewers:
  • 1 pound salmon fillet, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 1/2 cup plain Greek yogurt
  • 2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lime juice
  • 1 teaspoon honey
  • 1/2 teaspoon grated ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 10 bamboo skewers, soaked in water for at least 30 minutes
  • For the pineapple salsa:
  • 1 ripe pineapple, diced
  • 1/2 cup red onion, diced
  • 1 jalapeño pepper, seeded and finely chopped
  • 1/4 cup cilantro leaves and stems, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lime juice
  • Salt to taste

Instructions

Preheat your grill to medium-high heat.

Meanwhile, in a medium-sized bowl, whisk together the yogurt, lime juice, honey, ginger, salt, and pepper until smooth.

Add the salmon pieces to the bowl and mix until they’re evenly coated with the marinade.

Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes or up to 2 hours.

While the salmon is marinating, prepare the pineapple salsa.

In a separate bowl, combine the pineapple, red onion, jalapeño pepper, and cilantro.

Squeeze the lime juice over the top and sprinkle with salt to taste.

Mix well and refrigerate until ready to serve.

Thread 3-4 pieces of the marinated salmon onto each bamboo skewer, leaving a small space between each piece.

Place the skewers on the grill and cook for 8-10 minutes, turning occasionally, until the salmon is cooked through and flakes easily with a fork.

Serve the grilled salmon skewers with a side of the pineapple salsa and enjoy!

Notes

For a more intense flavor, let the salmon marinate for the full 2 hours – you won’t regret it! If using wooden skewers, make sure to soak them in water for at least 30 minutes to prevent them from catching fire on the grill.

To ensure food safety, cook the salmon to an internal temperature of 145°F (63°C).

Feel free to customize the pineapple salsa to your taste by adding or substituting other ingredients, such as diced mango or red bell pepper.

If you’re having trouble getting the salmon pieces to stick to the skewers, try gently pressing them onto the skewer instead of forcing them on.

This recipe is perfect for a summer gathering or potluck, as it’s light, refreshing, and can be easily scaled up or down depending on the number of guests.
