Zesty Salmon Kabobs

Salmon Kabobs

We’ve all heard about the health benefits of salmon, namely that it has tons of omega-3 fatty acid. Did you know that it’s also packed full of vitamins D and B12? Well, you just learned something new. I love salmon but I haven’t gotten very creative with it. Aside from baking it, I did try making cedar-plank salmon on several occasions. Smoked salmon is amazing on eggs benedict and surprisingly good as a dip with Chobani Greek Yogurt, olive oil and fresh dill.

It’s not quite summer, or spring for that matter but who says you can’t grill year-round. I’m having nostalgic moments for the summertime and I’m counting down the months until it gets here. Beaches, warm weather, ice cold Diet Cokes, frozen yogurt, sandals and dresses. I need to consider moving somewhere with warmer weather year-round. Since I’m missing summer so badly, I thought I’d change things up with zesty salmon kabobs. It was a short-lived escape when I realized how cold it was out and cozied it up with some creamy mushroom orzo (recipe to be posted soon).

    I love to grill year round. And I love salmon. Had no idea it was high in Vitamin D. I know I need more of that because I’ve hardly spent any time outside this winter! These kabobs look so healthy and delicious :)
