It wasn’t until recently that I really started loving salmon. I’m picky about fish because my family has always been the fishing sort so I have had the luxury of knowing what fresh caught, fresh cooked fish tastes like. The past few years we’ve started trying MSC certified salmon, which means it’s caught responsibly and sustainably and, for decidely non-local, tastes incredibly fresh.
We got these skewers for Christmas from my parents and this was our first time trying them out! In addition to the salmon we grilled squash, red onion, red pepper, and mushrooms. Let me tell you, I am so thrilled it’s grilling season again!

Salmon Skewers (For Two)
2 salmon filets
1 red pepper
1/2 red onion

Slice salmon, pepper, squash, and onion. Remove stalks from mushrooms. Put all ingredients in a bag/bowl for 30 minutes to marinate.
Slide pieces on skewers, alternating between salmon and the various vegetables. Grill for 10 minutes. Flip and grill an additional 10 minutes.
