Grilled salmon is 100% one of my most favorite foods ever. And it isn’t something we only eat in the summer time or warmer months. We are grilling all year around over here. Mostly because I hate the smell of cooking fish inside, but also because there is nothing like some foods on the grill. And salmon is so one of them.

You can make these salmon kebabs and add them to your favorite salad, on top of rice or pair it with your favorite sides. My kids love eating salmon too (especially Ezra) so we are grilling it a lot. It gets crispy on the outside but is a little buttery int he center, which is just how I like it. There is nothing worse than overcooked salmon so be sure not to overcook it!

When it come to eating cooked salmon leftover, I recommend having it cold or reheating on the grill in a pan so it doesn’t dry out.

What ingredients you need to grill salmon kebabs:

  • Salmon – cut in 1-inch pieces. I use organic scottish salmon or wild alaskan usually
  • Olive oil – good quality extra virgin olive oil is key!
  • Sea salt and black pepper
  • Lemon – fresh lemon juice on salmon is the best
  • Bamboo skewers – don’t forget to soak them before using in some water to prevent burning

How to grill simple salmon skewers:

  1. Heat the grill on medium heat and soak the bamboo skewers for a few minutes to soften (this prevents them from burning on grill)
  2. Add salmon to bowl and drizzle oil on top and salt and pepper and fresh lemon juice (you can add more spices if you want too!)
  3. Allow the salmon to marinate for a few then gently add salmon to skewers then spray well with oil to grease
  4. Cook on grill for about 8-10 minutes total, turning halfway through
  5. Enjoy while warm with desired sides

FAQs on grilling salmon:

  • How long do you grill salmon for? It varies based off the size of the fish but I tend to do max 8 minutes for a 6 ounce piece and for these skewers 8 to 10 minutes max. I like my salmon with a little crisp on the side but the inside should be buttery! I don’t like it too overcooked
  • How do you cook salmon so it won’t get stuck on the grill? Make sure to grease it well so it won’t stick – especially the skin side so it is easy to flip
  • Can you eat the skin of salmon? Yes absolutely! It is a personal preference but I love crispy salmon skin from the grill!
