Cooking Instructions

To make the mint basil vinaigrette, whisk together olive oil, lemon juice, honey, dijon mustard,
garlic, basil, mint, salt, and pepper in a small bowl. Set aside.

  1. In a medium bowl, toss together the cubed salmon, olive oil, oregano, cumin, garlic powder, salt and pepper.
  2. Preheat grill to medium heat.
  3. Thread the salmon, olives, and onion onto the skewers. Leave about 1-2 mm of space between each addition of salmon, olive, and onion, this will help cook the ingredients fairly quickly and evenly.
  4. Spray or brush the grill grates well with oil. Place the skewers on preheated grill. Cook for about 8-10 minutes, turning skewers occasionally, until fish is opaque throughout.
  5. Remove from grill and drizzle with mint basil vinaigrette.
