Rainbow Salmon Skewers


In the sizzling summer heat, we are always looking for ways to cook on the grill so that we can leave the oven OFF inside the house. These salmon skewers are healthy, hearty, filling and delicious – and so easy to cook! Pick your favourite veggies (you don’t have to stick to peppers and onions – try mushrooms, zucchini, or cherry tomatoes), then fire up the grill and get cooking!


  • 20oz fresh or frozen salmon
  • 1 medium of each – red, yellow, and green bell peppers
  • 4 small red onions
  • 4 tsp olive oil
  • lemon juice
  • black pepper or ZEST
  • 12 wooden skewers


Cut the salmon into 1 1/2″ chunks. Cut the peppers and onion into similar size pieces. Thread the salmon and vegetables in alternating order on each skewer, leaving enough room at the base of the skewers for handling. Brush the skewers on all sides with olive oil and sprinkle with pepper or ZEST. Cook on a hot grill, turning once until fish is cooked through and vegetables are slightly softened. Serve with a squeeze of fresh lemon juice.
