Grilled Salmon Skewers

These grilled salmon skewers are among one of my favorite easy summer grilling recipes that can be enjoyed all year around. Marinated in a sweet and tangy apricot sauce and grilled to perfection.

They are super quick and tasty to make and if you plan it well they will be ready in less than 30 minutes. Which makes it a perfect meal for tailgating, weight loss meal prep or whatever you see fit.

First, the fillet fish are cut into 1-in squares, then marinated in a mixture of apricot preserves, soy sauce, oil, garlic powder, onion powder, red pepper flakes, thyme, and paprika.

To be completely honest, one of the things I’m going to miss about summer is the fact that we won’t be outside as much grilling which is why I often make this in a broiler when the weather outside gets too cold.

Got friends coming over for dinner, or you just want something special for the night. Stop by the fishmonger on your way home from work and ask for Wild Alaska Salmon, they are wild-caught and never farmed. This makes a difference when it comes to the quality of your seafood. So when you ask for Alaska seafood you can rest assured that you are using some of the best seafood in the world.
