Salmon Mediterranean kebabs

I put this recipe in the simple, frugal life group (link in the comments) a few weeks ago and it went down well and so I thought that I would share it here. The recipe is for 4 but I will often use 1 fillet of salmon for 2 of us. I always buy whole salmon when they are half price at Christmas or Easter, and cut them into fillets to freeze.

When the children were home I used to make a lot of skewer kebabs as I could make one chicken breast with some vegetables feed 3 of us. You can put mushrooms, courgette, pepper or anything that will grill quickly. This picture has pineapple on but it was the only picture I had. Peaches are nice with chicken too.


  • 2 fillets of salmon, skinned

  • 1 red onion

  • Half a courgette

  • Half a cup of olive oil

  • Juice and zest from 1 lemon

  • 2 tsp chopped fresh thyme leaves

  • 2 tsp ground oregano

  • 1 tsp ground cumin

  • A mild chilli, chopped(or half a spoon of lazy chilli)

  • 1 tsp ground coriander

  1. In a bowl whisk all the ingredients together except the salmon and the onion and the courgette.
  2. Chop the salmon into 1 inch chunks.
  3. Chop the courgette into thick slices and the onion into chunks.
  4. Put the salmon and the veg into the marinade and place in the fridge for at least an hour.
  5. Place the salmon and veg on to the skewers (pre soak in water if using on a BBQ)
  6. Cook for 10 to 15 minutes on a grill, in an airfryer, or on a BBQ, turning and reapplying the marinade if needed.

They were lovely and reminded me of being abroad. The herbs in my garden are making such a difference to the taste of my food this year, and we are using them every day. How are you using your herbs?
