This was last night’s supper, it was a beautiful night and we ate outdoors, oh how I love summer! I served this with a great big garden salad and everyone loved them – including Madison which was a happy surprise for me.

How To Make Salmon Kebabs

  • If using wooden skewers you will want to soak them at least 30 minutes to avoid burning.
  • I prefer to double the skewers when threading, this prevents the salmon from flipping around the stick while turning.
  • You can also use thin metal skewers which saves time cooking, no need to soak.

How Long Do You Cook Salmon Kebabs on the Grill?

  • Fish cooks fast! You will only need about 8 to 10 minutes on the grill total cook time.

  1. I didn’t have fresh herbs, so I just used orange pepper and garlic pepper blend.  It was absolutely outstanding!  Fish cooked perfectly.  Definitely making again.  Used Faroe Island Salmon which is pretty fatty.

  2. Would this recipe work in the air fryer?

    • I make them as salmon filets, spread the spice mixture on top, spray with EVOO, and put in the air fryer on top of a couple lemon slices. Works like a charm

  3. My family just loves this recipe!  Making now for the fourth time.  The seasoning is perfect and it’s the only salmon my son will eat;).
    Thanks for this recipe!

  4. Made these with oranges instead of lemons and basil instead of oregano and it was super delicious! Thanks so much for the recipe!

  5. Do you take the skin off prior to putting on the skewers?

    • I scored my cubes of salmon through the flesh and down to the skin. Then I flattened the knife a little to separate the salmon flesh. It was easier than I expected. 

  6. Would halibut work for this recipe? Suggestions for herbs and seasonings would be appreciated. Thank you!

    • Try using grapefruit slices or pieces, tarragon, garlic, parsley, pinch dry mustard…….great flavor profiles for halibut! 

  7. I have not made this yet but do have a question. Love your site by the way. What day of the week do you email your new weekly meal plan?

  8. This is the best way I have found to make salmon! We try to encorporate healthy fish in our diet but my husband doesn’t like the “fishy taste” (lol). The seasoning, and grilling it, gives a delicious fresh lemony taste. Thanks again, Gina for providing a healthy recipe for me and my family!!!

  9. I love your meal plans. Please keep them coming.

  10. Made this today.  So easy and delicious.  Defrosted a frozen wild salmon filet (Costco), split a baked potato and pan cooked asparagus spears.  Used the same season mixture on the potato and asparagus.  Cranked up the oven broiler and six minutes later, the salmon was ready (turn after 3 minutes).  Hubby loved it.  Just the right amount if lemon with the salmon.  Keeper!

  11. I just made this for a lovely Sunday lunch. It is delicious. All the recipes from this site have been wonderful

  13. We had this for dinner—again.  I could eat it every week.  Absolutely my favorite way to fix salmon.  I have not had fresh oregano when making this so I use dried (half as much as recommended).  We really enjoy this recipe.
    Thank you very much Gina!

  14. Love this recipe. Would like to serve this for a small gathering, but 2 guests have dietary restrictions regarding seeds or nuts, so can’t use sesame seeds. Any suggestions on either a replacement to give the fish texture and flavor the sesame brings?  If no substitute, do you think leaving the sesame off will drastically change the lovely flavor?,
