Grilled Salmon Lemon And Lime Skewers

Grilled Salmon Lemon And Lime Skewers
Skewers aren’t just for beef or chicken, they’re also great for seafood, like shrimp or salmon! These zesty grilled salmon kabobs are easy to assemble and full of healthy Omega-3 fats in each bite. Dusted with fresh oregano and cumin, these skewers are grilled to perfection and are sure to be a hit.

Alongside being tasty, this summer meal is incredibly rich in nutrients. Salmon is rich in Omega-3 fats, and also full of micronutrients like iron, B vitamins, and the antioxidant mineral selenium. The selenium is particularly important because it helps protect against any mercury that may be present in the fish.

A side of cauliflower rice tossed with herbs and a squeeze of lemon and lime juice would be a great base for these skewers. You can also toss some veggies on the grill and serve those alongside these skewers, too.
