Salmon Skewers of LOVE!

Salmon Skewers of Love

Chef Robert Lewis proves diabetes-friendly dishes can be delicious.

Makes 4 servings

What’s in it??

2 medium-size fresh salmon filets
2 Tbsp fresh garlic
¼ cup extra virgin olive oil
1 tsp fresh basil
2 Tbsp fresh lemon juice
1 red pepper
2 green peppers
1 red onion
1 large Portobello mushroom
4 bamboo skewers

Let’s Put It Together:

Skin the salmon and cut it into 1-inch pieces, if your fishmonger hasn’t already done the job for you.

Mix garlic, oil, basil and lemon juice in a bowl. Combine with salmon and refrigerate for 2 hours.

Place the skewers in cold water for 10 minutes before building them. (This will keep them from burning.)

Cut the veggies into 1-inch pieces.

Alternate the peppers, onions, mushrooms and salmon on skewers.

Place them in a hot oven at 375 degrees for 10 to 12 minutes.
