Ingredients

  • 4 bamboo skewers, soaked for at least ½ hour
  • 300g salmon, skin and bones removed cut into 2cm squares
  • 1 tsp. olive oil
  • 8 button mushrooms
  • 1/2 zucchini sliced
  • 8 cherry tomatoes
  • 1/2 cup quinoa cooked in 11/2 cups water for 10-15 mins
  • 1 lemon or lime, squeezed
  • Handful of lettuce or spinach

Method

  1. Cook quinoa in small pot or microwave. When cooked season with salt and pepper and squeeze 1/2 lemon juice. Mix and set aside.
  2. Thread skewers, alternating mushrooms, tomato, salmon, and zucchini aiming for at least 2 of each veg on kebab and 3 of the salmon.
  3. Squeeze 1/2 lemon juice over kebabs and drizzle a touch of olive oil, season with salt and pepper to taste. Heat BBQ and cook 4-5 minutes turning to avoid burning.
  4. Salmon should not be cooked all the way through, as you still want it to be soft and moist.
  5. Serve on bed of quinoa and lettuce, serve immediately.
