Things You’ll Need

  • 1 (1 1/2 lb) salmon fillet

  • 3 large lemons, sliced

  • 2 tbsp avocado oil or high-temperature cooking oil

  • 1/2 tsp sea salt

  • 1/2 tsp cracked black pepper

Step 1

Preheat your grill to medium-high heat.

Gather your ingredients. Place the salmon on a cutting board and chop into 1/2-inch cubes, then slice the lemons. If you're incorporating additional ingredients (such as zucchini, onion, tomato, pineapple, mango, etc.), chop them now, as well.

Step 2

Thread the salmon cubes and lemon slices onto 6 metal skewers.

If using wooden skewers, be sure to pre-soak them in water for at least 15 minutes before using so that they don't catch fire on the grill.

Step 3

Once you're finished preparing the skewers, generously coat them with avocado oil (or a high-temperature cooking oil).

Step 5

Place skewers on the preheated grill. Grill 2 to 3 minutes until grill marks appear, then use tongs to carefully rotate the skewers. Grill an additional 2 to 3 minutes then flip again.

Continue grilling and flipping until salmon is opaque and cooked through, about 5 to 8 minutes total. Serve with your favorite side dishes, and enjoy!
